The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is the new commitment of the Asian company for the computer contortion. It is a laptop can fold the screen in different positions (Lenovo difference between four different positions) to suit the needs of the moment. This model reflects the legacy of the first Yoga and incorporates several enhancements that make this one of the convertible devices with Windows 8 more attractive than can be found in the market.
Among them, perhaps the most striking is the inclusion of a touch screen with excellent resolution of 3,200 x 1,800 pixels. been implemented, but also other aspects such as speed of onset (the Yoga is able to start in less than five seconds since the kindle), the autonomy or the ability to control various system functions through hand movements. This equipment is available in the market for a starting price of 1,300 euros.
Without doubt one of the great strengths of Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is the versatility of its design. Besides its use as a traditional notebook with touch functionality, the screen is also capable of folding up to 360 degrees to function as a tablet traditional. Also, if you turn the screen until the keyboard face down on the table we will enjoy an attractive position for playing multimedia content. The last variation is the position as store, with the team forming a triangle in which both the screen and the keyboard will be out at the sides.
It is also a position intended for consumption of multimedia content and to use the touch functionality of the equipment. The round screen offers some resistance to allow us to maintain any position, but not enough to make it uncomfortable to move the panel. The dimensions of the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro are 33 x 22 x 1.6 inches and weight reaches 1.4 kilos. These are very competitive odds, while recognizing that the use of the computer in tablet form over a prolonged time can be uncomfortable.
One of the points that have surprised us the Yoga Pro 2 is the work done by the Chinese company to improve computer performance. Thanks to its own technologies and quality of memory SSD integrated laptop just take four seconds and turn medium from scratch and load the operating system’s main screen. A great figure even considering that we are already moving in very short times compared to Windows 7 and especially hard drives. To run fluently applications and system menus, incorporates a processor Intel Core i5-4200U dual core with a power of 1.6 GHz (2.3 GHz for maximum power at times need a higher performance) attached to a memory of 4 GB RAM. This is a sufficient set for many desktop applications but can be shorter in the case of playing modern games or tools that handle heavier graphics.
Another key to the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is its screen. We are facing a panel of 13 inch technology IPS and excellent resolution of 3,200 x 1,800 pixels with an excellent level of detail is reached. This resolution will be noticeable especially in viewing movies and high quality contents. The images reach a good brightness and IPS technology enables wide viewing angles. That yes, one of the problems that fall many of the portable market is opt-out screens with glossy finish (glossy), a type of panel which is very attractive to see it but that catches up to the last reflection. Personally, I think it is more useful to bet on a screen with matte appearance though lose some glitter at first glance.
Something that has caught much attention of this laptop is the degree of customization that has wanted to incorporate Lenovo through their dedicated applications. While it will not reach the layers of software that are on an operating system like Android, it does reach an experience that can become a basis for differentiating notebooks Lenovo from other teams in the competition. One of the features that are obvious at first is the control through gestures. Due to this feature, we can move between different photos or videos, rotate an image or open it in full screen. This is a rather limited to a handful of my property, but clearly it can be one of the great advantages of PC makers in the coming years.
Moreover, we also have Lenovo VeriFace, a useful tool that allows us to use our face recognition via webcam to access the laptop when started Windows. It is quite useful to enter a PIN or a password option. This tool is configured once and then linked to the user password. When we return to restart the computer or exit the Sleep state, the face is detected automatically speed up access to the system. Recognition is quite fine, although a bit that disturbs normal Windows access page loads and after a couple of seconds to load Veriface.
A useful feature that users appreciate smartphones and tablets is the ability to visualize various functions and files through mobile Yoga Pro 2. The app in question is called Lenovo Companion, and through it we can make MINORS as transmitting multimedia content or view mobile messages.
Finally, we would like to highlight the app Yoga Chef for cooking enthusiasts. This app is very visual and includes the ability to pass through the various pages of recipes through the voice. Indeed, Lenovo has introduced a pair of smart controls through voice, a very small moment but that could expand significantly in the coming months cast.
