Review Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Convertible
« on: December 18, 2013, 04:14:58 »
Pixel-packed performer. Last year’s Yoga 13 was one of the most popular Ultrabooks yet, and for good reason: while it wasn’t perfect, it was smartly-designed, with a unique (and sturdy) build and good performance for its price point. One year later, can Lenovo’s successor carry the torch?

There are actually 8 gig RAM models out there (were direct from Lenovo US at launch):

Article states:There is only one memory configuration available for the Yoga 2 Pro: 4 GB of DDR3L-1600 MHz RAM. The memory is soldered directly to the board and as such is not upgradeable. There are no empty slots available for the addition of SODIMMs.

"There is only one memory configuration available for the Yoga 2 Pro: 4 GB of DDR3L-1600 MHz RAM" - NOT TRUE.

Correction: The Intel Wireless-N 7260 NIC in the Yoga 2 Pro is not dual-band.
This is the version in the Yoga 2 Pro: http://ark.intel.com/products/75174/Intel-Wireless-N-7260 (Single 2.4GHz + Bluetooth)

Source: I'm a Yoga 2 Pro owner with a ASUS RT-AC66U router and can confirm no 5GHz support for Wireless N.

The contrast ratio is disappointing, lower than the Ativ 9. It seemed to me that the blacks are not black enough. And the sRGB coverage isn't great either. Otherwise a great laptop and display. TIP: disable ClearType.

I just got mine in the mail, opened it up.
Turned it on and noticed light bleeding IN the bottom when it was all black. Is that normal? And is there any solution?

Yoga 2 Pro review by Digital Versus (http://www.digitalversus.com/laptop/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-2-pro-p17173/test.html#full-review) declares following:

"But there's a trick. What Lenovo doesn't say anywhere in the documentation is that it [yoga 2 pro] doesn't perform as well in tablet mode as it does in laptop mode. Once you switch into Tablet, Stand or Tent mode, the processor runs at just 10% of its maximum speed, coming to a total of 0.76 GHz (yes, you read that correctly)."

Are you able to confirm this very troubling information? As I see it, this would major flaw for yoga 2 pro, since it reduces greatly different possible uses of the laptop

Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 has issues with Bluetooth not working and locking up the complete PC, plus other complaints from customers like me, beware!  Check out the problems online before you buy!!!  Lenovo issued an update but it doesn't help

The HDMI port is Micro HDMI, not mini HDMI.
