Lenovo wants to kill the stylus with Yoga Tablet 2

Agam Shah | Jan. 6, 2015
Lenovo's new Yoga Tablet 2 could kill the stylus and make pens and pencils trendy again.

The RealSense camera can remove background images during a Web chat, or superimpose a scene or company logo to make a chat more interesting. That's a good feature when chatting from a cafe or other locations, said Steve Gilbert , director of worldwide product marketing of commercial group.

The 12-inch ThinkPad Yoga will start at $999, and the 15-inch model will start at $1,199. Both will become available next month. The 14-inch model will start at $1,199 and ship in May. Nvidia graphics will be optional in the 14-inch and 15-inch models.

Lenovo is also putting a gaggle of new features in its Yoga 3 hybrids, which are slimmer and faster than the Yoga 2 models. Lenovo has put a 14-inch display in what was previously the 13.3-inch frame of the Yoga 2, and added a new 11-inch model.

The 11-inch Yoga 3 is 15.8-millimeters thick, weighs 1.2 kilograms, and has the Core M processor. The 14-inch model is 18.3-millimeters thick, weighs 1.6 kilograms, and has Intel fifth-generation Core i processors.

The new processor and components have helped reduce the thickness of the Yoga by around 8 percent, Barrow said.

Both Yoga 3 models offer up to seven hours of battery life. Storage options include 256GB SSD or a 500GB solid-state and hard-drive combination. The hybrids come standard with full high-definition screen and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

The Yoga 3 11-inch model will be priced starting at $799, while the 14-inch starts at $979. They will ship in March.
