Lenovo unveils Ideapad Yoga 2 hybrid Windows 8 laptops at CES 2014

When the first Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga laptop came out into the market, not only was it a bold move to take on the likes of the thinner and lighter Apple Macbook Air, but it also was one of the first devices in the new Windows 8 hybrid category. This was back in 2012. Come CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2014, and Lenovo is all set to launch their IdeaPad Yoga 2 hybrid.

In terms of specifications, the IdeaPad Yoga 2 can be considered a more affordable version of the Yoga 2 Pro tablet, but of course, with some trade-offs, as it comes at roughly half the price - it starts from $529 (roughly Rs. 33,000) for the 11-inch variant. The 13-inch variant starts at $999 (roughly Rs. 62,000). The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 will be available from late January for the 11-inch model, and from February for the 13-inch model.

Other specifications of the 11-inch IdeaPad Yoga 2 model include a weight of 2.9 pounds and a thickness of 0.67-inches. The CPU is a quad-core Intel Pentium and it has a basic 500GB hard drive.

The other model, 13-inch, weighs 3.5 pounds and is about a hair thicker than the 11-inch model. On the flipside for the 13-inch model, the price could be lower because for a mere $100 price reduction, one would lose the 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution of the Yoga 2 Pro. Of course, the 1920 x 1080 resolution is good but will it justify the price hike, is a question that might raise eyebrows. There are some benefits though, which include a backlit keyboard, a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, with an added option for solid state hybrid drive (SSHD) storage available.
