I'm Dan Ackerman and we are taking a look at the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2. That is of course a sequel to one of our favorite laptops from the past year or so, and the conceit of the Yoga is that it looks like a traditional clamshell laptop, a 13-inch model in this case.
The previous gen had a 13 and an 11, and you fold the screen all the way flat and then you keep going and it folds 360 degrees and lays down flat like a tablet.
Now of course for the backside you still got the
keyboard exposed but the keyboard is deactivated.
New for this second-generation version of the Yoga, the keyboard is now backlit.
It's a little bit thinner, a little bit lighter, but I think more importantly it's got a super high-res screen, is a 3200x1800 IPS screen that is one of the highest resolutions you can get on any laptop.
We're starting to see a handful of these higher-res screens pop up on very high-end systems, and I'm pleased to see it on one of my favorite designs.
