Engadget Review

The Yoga 2 Pro addresses many of our complaints about the original, and is now one of the best touchscreen Ultrabooks you can buy, especially at this price. We just wish the battery life had improved more.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 3,200 x 1,800 display
  • Lighter than the original, well-built
  • Highly versatile design
  • Reasonably priced
Cons
  • Relatively short battery life
  • Keyboard still exposed in tablet mode
  • Some undersized keyboard buttons
