Lenovo makes another good laptop, here is Idea Pad Yoga 2 review.
Idea Pad Yoga is 11.6 inch laptop flexible brethren by virtue of a £500 price. For that amount of money this laptop is one of the best in that category for a sure.
Like all the Yoga laptops, this one is also a slimline laptop with a convertible 'flip and fold' design that allows you to fold the screen back through a full 360-degrees. This model weighs 1.3kg and screen resolution is also a pleasant surprise, this model cant "reach" outstanding 3200x1200 resolution, thats the bad side, so this Pad Yoga is limited to a more pedestrian 1366x768. But it does still use an IPS panel and while it's not the brightest IPS display we've ever seen the viewing angles do come close to a full 180-degrees
But like i said, for this price this is one of the best display's definitly.
Yoga performances are also good, those earlier released Yoga's are equipped with Intel Core processor, this Yoga 2 have humble Pentium processor.
The Pentium N3520 used here is a quad-core chip with 2.16GHz clock-speed, but it's no match even for an entry-level Core i3 processor and only manages to produce a score of 1968 points when running the general-purpose PCMark 7 benchtest.
Yoga need several seconds to wake up from sleep and 20 seconds to boot even when using the Windows 8 'fast start' option but Yoga 2 is perfectly adequate for basic tasks such as web browsing, streaming video or word processing thats the better side with 4GB of memory and 500GB hard drive who going to allow you to run alot of applications, as well as storing plenty of music, films, photos etc.
However it will going something harder with video-editing or preparing video presentations. Also this laptop is not for gaming, you even cant install Stalker, game we tested, so 3D games are pretty much off the agenda. There is a 13-inch version of the Yoga 2 available with a Core i5 processor and solid-state drive, but that doubles the price to £1000. But we reviewing this time Yoga 2
Lenovo quotes battery life of 'up to six hours', but the Yoga 2 actually lasted for a full six hours and twenty minutes when streaming video off the BBC iPlayer so that kinda good because you can chat on skype for a more than 6 hours, around 8 hours you can use Yoga 2 without pause if you dont using Wifi.
There are many laptops who can "take alive" for a more than 8 hours but Yoga 2 still provides quite respectable battery life for a laptop in this price range.
