Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo Yoga 2 has a front camera. Most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years also have a front camera.

We compared all the other laptops which also have a front camera to this notebook PC and we think the Yoga 2, the Yoga 2 13, or the Flex all from Lenovo is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

Most laptops of a comparable age and type to the Yoga 2 do not have a full-size keyboard. The Lenovo Yoga 2 is no exception to this as it too does not have a full-size keyboard.
