[MUSIC] Hey. I'm Nate with CNet. And we're checking out the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows. Now this is a 13 inch device with a quad HD display. And it'll be available later this year starting in November for 699 in the US. So you might be thinking that the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows looks pretty familiar. And you're right. The design is really similar to the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro that we saw earlier this month. This device is running windows 8.1. It's got a quad core Intel processor. A 13.3 inch display with a quad HD resolution, that's a 2560 by 1440 pixel resolution. There are 64 gigs of storage on board, but the device also supports 64 gigs micro SD cards. Bringing you to 128 gigs of total storage. So you've probably know it's a cylindrical hinge. That's kind of a key part of the Yoga tablet's design, it's actually a battery. And Lenovo says it it'll get about 15 hours of battery life. Of course the hinge is more than just a battery. It's a stand that offers 180 degrees of movement. It can also be turned into this sort of hanging position that Lenovo says you can use to sort of hold the display and hang it. The stand has another neat trick. It's magnetic, and that clasps on to a Bluetooth keyboard. Now this keyboard's actually gonna be bundled with the tablet making for a nice laptop-like clamshell package. And of course when you aren't using the keyboard as a keyboard, it doubles as a cover. Now you know that there are two large chamber speakers, one on each side, but there's also a JBL sub-woofer on the back. We haven't had a chance to listen to the device yet, but that promises to be some pretty powerful audio, coming from a 13 inch tablet that is. Now at about 2.3 pounds, minus the keyboard of course, the Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 with Windows is actually surprisingly light. It'll be available later this holiday season starting in November for 699 in the US. I'm Nate Ralph with CNET. Thanks for watching.
