Pros

  • Silky 3200-by-1800-pixel display
  • Performs both notebook and tablet roles well
  • Handsome industrial design

Cons

  • Weak typing experience (for a Lenovo laptop)

At A Glance

The Yoga 2 Pro combination laptop/tablet is a superior experience in either role, and its ultra-high-resolution display is awesome. But the dual design slightly compromises the typing experience.
