Which Lenovo Yoga tablet is right for me?

Elias Plastiras | Oct. 30, 2014
Lenovo is diving deep into the consumer PC market with a range of tablet and hybrid products that are more innovative than most.

You should buy it if you want a large tablet that puts a focus on allowing you to watch video content more easily and in innovative ways around your home. The stand makes the tablet easy to place upright on a desk, while the projector adds versatility and a nice little 'wow' factor for your friends and family.

It costs $799 and comes with an Intel Atom Z3745 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of flash storage, a dual-band Wi-Fi adapter, and a 3-cell (9600 milliamp-hour battery).

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Android
If a 13.3in Android tablet is way too big for your liking, then you can consider the Yoga Tablet 2. This one is a 10.1in tablet with a Full HD (1920x1080-pixel) IPS screen, Android KitKat 4.4, and it features an Intel Atom Z3745 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of integrated flash storage, and a 9600 milliamp-hour battery.

Like the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, its cylindrical stand allows it to be stood up and used more easily as a display for video content, and the hole in the stand for 'Hang mode' is also present. Unlike the previous model, the Tablet 2 Pro's stand is a little wider and offers a couple more angles for viewing.

It features a newer stand that can do more angles and which also has a hole that introduces 'hang mode'.

There's not much more to say about this one. It costs $399 and is a good option if you want a little tablet that's easy to hold while reading and also easy to rest while watching videos.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows
Lenovo said that a lot of its customers wanted a tablet for productivity purposes, and so it released a 10.1-inch Yoga Tablet 2 that runs Windows 8.1. It's for those of you who want to run Windows applications, but also want a small tablet form factor. Furthermore, a keyboard is supplied that can turn the tablet into a more than capable typing device.

A Windows 8 version of the Yoga Tablet 2 comes with a keyboard and is aimed at those of you want to be productive (well, as productive as a small tablet will allow anyway).

It's called Keyboard Cover, and it's attracted into place at the bottom of the tablet screen by magnets. It offers a surprisingly satisfying typing experience, though because of the size of the unit, you might find it slightly cramped.
