Lenovo Yoga 2 11 Launched. Yoga for the Masses?

Posted on 06 January 2014 by

Lenovo’s first 11-inch Yoga device ran RT on an ARM-architecture. We ignored it. The second 11-incher was the 11S with Core CPU options. It’s still available with Haswell and a rather impressive power/battery life ratio. The latest Yoga 2 11 is more consumer focused and used the Baytrail-M platform. It’s a difficult one to position between an UltraMobile and an Ultrabook because on one hand it’s Baytrail (Pentium branded) and on the other it weights 2.9 pounds.

From the Press Release:

Lenovo continues to refine the consumer-friendly features of the Yoga line with YOGA 2, a thinner and lighter model at an affordable price point. It folds back 360o, providing four devices for the price of one. Plus, it features unique app recommendations for each of the four usage modes – Laptop, Stand, Tent and Tablet. YOGA 2 provides the ultimate flexibility between work and play for up to 6 hours of battery life on a single charge.

– Crystal clear HD Display with IPS technology which support 178° wide view angle ?

– Dual-hinge design allows for 360o rotation with four unique modes: Laptop, Stand, Tent and Tablet

– Lenovo Picks: a concierge-like service that dynamically recommends apps for the mode you are currently using  ?

– Lenovo Voice Control enables users to execute simple commands by speaking to the YOGA 2  ?
