Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review
The internal non-removable 4 Cell 54 Watt-Hour Lithium-Ion battery is rated to provide up to 9 hours of battery life with basic use, or up to 6 hours with continuous HD video playback (with the display brightness at 150 nits and the keyboard light turned off). On average, we were able to get about a full day of usage on the device before requiring a nightly charge. This is by no means the best out there, but it does have enough juice to get you through the day.
When it comes right down to it, the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro has a lot to offer for someone looking for a high-end ultrabook. The price is a bit up there, between $929 and $1599 depending on the model, but our review unit at $1299 (or even the next model down at $1149) would be good enough for most users. As we mentioned earlier, the key features include the impressive 13.3” 3200x1800 resolution display, which makes using the device a pure joy, as well as the selection of fast Intel processors and SSD drive that give it plenty of speed. Add to that the Windows 8.1 platform, and the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is a real winner in the ultrabook category.
If you are looking for a tablet/hybrid though, it is a different story. Even though the keyboard is not removable, the device can still be used in 4 modes, which does add to its flexibility. However, when compared to other tablets, it is pretty bulky and heavy.
Software version on the reviewed unit: Windows 8.1, Version 6.3 (Build 9600).
