Lenovo Yoga 2 13 Review | i5

So I just pre-ordered the new Lenovo Yoga 2 recently and I've been using it since 4 weeks this is my review.

This laptop is an Entertainment Powerhouse. Its pretty good in the performance since it comes with a 1.6Ghz Intel Core 4th Gen i5 Processor. The main problem with the laptop is that it hangs really often, because of the low reading speed of the SATA Harddrive. The 992$ price tag maybe a bit for people asking for more power and graphic performance, but this laptop has its own perks.


  • Intel Core i5 1.6 Ghz Processor
  • Backlit Keyboard
  • Intel hd 4400 Integrated Graphics
  • 500GB SATA HDD
  • 4 Different Laptop Modes- Tablet mode, Laptop Mode, Stand Mode, Tent Mode
  • 4 GB Ram
  • Ultra Thin Ultrabook ( Weight 1.5 Kg )
  • 10 Point Multi Touchscreen
  • HD Resolution 1920 x 1080p
 Some Cool Features

  • Lenovo Yoga Picks

This laptop comes with a super cool Feature called Lenovo Yoga Picks. So what it does is that it Recommends Windows Games and Apps based on the mode the laptop is in (Tent Mode,Tablet Mode,Laptop Mode, Stand Mode) This is especially helpful when you just got your brand new Yoga 2 and you want to try out Applications on every Mode.

  1. Laptop Mode- Some of the Application recommended from Yoga Picks for Laptop Mode are Facebook, Twitter, AOL
  2. Stand Mode- BBC, Yoga Camera Man, IMDB and ESPN are some of the Applications recommended by Yoga Picks
  3. Tent Mode- Tent Mode has some useful Applications like Huffington Post, Pixsta and many more.
  4. Tablet Mode- The Tablet Mode completes the Hybrid Capabilities of the Lenovo Yoga 2, And let me tell you, its got some killer apps- Yoga Photo Touch, Wikipedia, CNN, Dailymotion and Basically any game that you can play on your Windows or Android tablet.

  • Display

The Resolution at times get a little Distorted, but when viewing movies and playing games the HD Resolution Works its magic. The 1920 x 1080 Resolution is lower than the Yoga 2 Pro which has a QHD Resolution but The colors on the Yoga 2 are amazing. They really are. Saying this the brightness can be adjusted to almost like a light bulb and The Native Resolution is 1920 x 1080 which for some may make the screen a bit too small for their comfort, but none the less the Resolution beats any Dell Inspiron, Sony Vaio Laptop or any other laptop.

  • Battery Life
One of the best things about the Lenovo Yoga 2 13 is the battery life, whether you're running A Torrent Application or any download if its full charged and left untouched the battery life can last about from 7-8 hours easily. I know this because iv experienced this personally and I assure you will love how you don't need to plug it in the power adapter again and again.

  • Intel HD Integrated Graphics

Intel® Iris™ graphics, together with the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor, delivers amazing and vibrant multimedia experiences. Get immersed in high-speed, stunning, 3-D gaming. Do advanced photo and video editing quickly and easily. Sit back and enjoy the best in movies with gorgeous HD and brilliant 4K Ultra HD display.

Everything about the Graphic Card is fine except that it does not have an option to turn of Vsync, this is a big problem for gamers but if the game has an option to turn off Vertical Sync (generally the command is gl_vsync0) then you are good to go.
