So far, so good – but how does it handle?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sophie-charara" title="View user profile.">Sophie Charara</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Design and Build </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>There isn't too much innovation here on the modes front – Lenovo seems to think it did a bang-up job on the last model and we'd tend to agree. So, like its predecessor, the Yoga G Pro can be used in laptop mode with the screen flipped all the way around as a hefty tablet, or in tent/stand modes for presentations.</p> <p>One of our problems in our <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/ideapad-yoga/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-hands-review/news">test of the original Yoga</a> is that you can still feel the keys underneath – and that hasn't changed on this model. On the business-friendly ThinkPad Yoga, though, the keys lift up and flatten out. We're not sure why Lenovo didn't kit out the 2 Pro with this feature and it's a shame.</p> <p>The keyboard is backlit, though – handy in shady press conferences, we're sure – and it'll come as no surprise to find that the Yoga 2 Pro is thinner at 15.5mm and lighter at 1.39kg than the original. To be honest, at this size it's much of a muchness but we suppose every little helps. In our short play, we did find the Yoga 2 Pro to be as heavy as a regular laptop so we can't see too much movie-watching in bed happening. In stand mode in the kitchen, though? Yes sir.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" alt="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-yoga-2-pro-hands-on-9.JPG?1378440331" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" alt="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-yoga-2-pro-hands-on-12.JPG?1378440331" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" alt="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-yoga-2-pro-hands-on-7.JPG?1378440331" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Hi-res laptop screen </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>IFA's chock full of hi-res screens – and Lenovo's really giving laptops a shot in the arm with the 13.3in 3200x1800 screen on the Yoga 2 Pro. Other than the expensive <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-macbook-pro-13in-retina-display/review">Retina Display MacBook</a>, niche <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/google-chromebook-pixel/review">Google Chromebook Pixel</a> and models like Toshiba's US-only Kirabook we haven't encountered too many laptops with such eye-caressing screens. And it's about time – smartphones and tablets have been having way too much pixel-per-inch fun for far too long.</p> <p>Windows 8 looks gorgeous at this resolution with crisp text, vivid colours in built-in apps like Yoga Chef (full of recipes). Plus the screen's very bright too, maxing out at 350 nits which is four times brighter than the old Yoga.</p> <p>We weren't able to load up any hi-res images or video to really see the difference – but viewing angles were decent for films with a friend and swiping through Live Tiles was responsive too.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" alt="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-yoga-2-pro-hands-on-6.JPG?1378440331" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4000" height="3000" title="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" alt="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-yoga-2-pro-hands-on-4.JPG?1378440331" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Screen Modes and OS tricks </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>No new screen modes then but Lenovo has thoughtfully added some rubber to the edge of the display to protect the Yoga 2 Pro when in tent mode. On the software side of things, Yoga Picks is also pretty nifty – it recognises what screen mode you are in and suggests apps to open though we did have a bit of trouble switching it to tent mode in our time with it.</p> <p>Voice control is now built in – a useful touch if swiping gets too tiring – so with Yoga Camera Man you can tell the Yoga 2 Pro to take a photo without any prodding. And with basic gesture controls you can swipe through recipes in the aforementioned Yoga Chef without getting chilli oil on that beautiful screen.</p> <p>We're looking forward to spending some more quality time with the 2 Pro back home. It will be launching this October for €1300 – which will probably equate to over £1000 – but we'll update Lenovo fans with UK pricing as and when we get confirmation.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" alt="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-yoga-2-pro-hands-on-1.JPG?1378440331" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4000" height="3000" title="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" alt="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-yoga-2-pro-hands-on-2.JPG?1378440331" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" alt="Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lenovo-yoga-2-pro-hands-on-3.JPG?1378440331" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/lenovo/ifa-2013/hands-review-lenovo-yoga-2-pro/news#comments IFA 2013 Laptops Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Thu, 05 Sep 2013 15:29:35 +0000 Sophie Charara 1426241 at http://www.stuff.tv
