At first glance it's an appealing device, with a "sleek" body that Laptop Magazine finds "stunning" while PC Mag says the aluminum finish gives it "a nice business-like aesthetic." You'll want it to look nice, given that you're unlikely to be moving it around much: CNET calls it very "bottom heavy" and Ars Technica found it "huge." Though PC Mag says "the weight feels reasonably comfortable in the hand," PC World notes that "its size will eventually become an issue" as it doesn't easily fit in messenger bags or purses. The battery life doesn't fare much better for portability, with Laptop Magazine noting a run time "shorter than the average slate" and Ars Technica says it just "fails" at being efficient. But considering what the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro can do over other slates, CNET feels the battery life is pretty "long" and PC Mag finds it "reasonable."
The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is intended as a media consumption device, and for that purpose it's gifted with a display Laptop Magazine calls "gorgeous" and PC Mag finds "roomy, tack-sharp, and bright." But it's the projector that's the real draw here, a "gimmick" that Ars Technica found "works as advertised" with image quality that Laptop Magazine says isn't "the best" but PC Mag believes it at least "looked good in a suitably dark room."
The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is a device designed with a very specific use case in mind. If you just need a media tablet there are plenty of better options out there. But if you like the idea of being able to throw whatever you're watching up on a wall at a whim, the Tablet 2 Pro isn't a disappointment.
