Lenovo doesn’t appear to be slowing down as things appear to be moving full steam ahead after their acquisition of IBM’s X86 server business. Not too long after unveiling the ThinkPad Yoga for business customers, the company is coming down a peg to unveil brand new Yoga devices for customers as well.
First off are a trio of tablets, namely the Lenovo Yoga Table 2, Yoga Tablet 2 for Windows and the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro. One similarity these devices share is the fact that they all run Intel’s new Atom Z3745 processor and 2GB of RAM, but other than that, they all feature different screen sizes, with the Yoga Tablet 2 For Windows running Windows 8.1, as opposed to the Yoga Tablet 2 and Yoga Tablet 2 Pro which runs Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
The Yoga Tablet 2 features an 8.0-inch Full HD display, while the Yoga Tablet 2 For Windows has 10.1 inches of display real estate, and each of them featuring 16 and 32GB of storage each, which is expandable to 64GB via a microSD card. As far as battery life is concerned, each device can also last for 18 and 16 hours respectively, as the Yoga Tablet 2 has a 6,400 mAh battery built in, while the Yoga Tablet 2 For Windows has 9,600mAh inside of it.
The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro meanwhile has an enormous 13.3-inch Quad HD display, and a similar storage size and battery specification as the Yoga Tablet, but what truly sets this device apart from the two is the fact that it comes with a built-in pico projector that an project an image onto a surface up to 15.0 inches in size.
The star of the show however is the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro convertible notebook. This is the first commercial notebook device to feature Intel’s brand new Core M processor, which allows the Yoga 3 Pro to run without the need to use a fan. It also features an SSD and up to 512GB of HDD inside, which means it runs just as fast as any notebook is capable of these days.
The Yoga 3 Pro is also one of the thinnest notebooks in the market right now, at just 12.8mm thin when opened, and is very light at 1.19kg. The Yoga notebook’s critically famous flexibility is also improved in this model thanks to Lenovo’s new watchband hinge which is constructed from more than 800 pieces of steel and aluminium, to ensure that it provides the same degree of flexibility and flatness seen in metallic watch bands. It is also rated to be able to bent at least 25,000 times, which means that it definitely won’t be breaking easily any time soon.
The Yoga 3 Pro’s 13.3 inch display provides users with a QHD+ resolution of 3,200 x 1,800 pixels, which looks amazing regardless of the tasks that you’re doing, be it for work or play.
Available at the end of November, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 will cost RM1,099, RM1,599 and RM1,999 for the Yoga Tablet 2, Yoga Tablet 2 For Windows and the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro respectively, while the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro will cost RM4,999.
