The Yoga 2 is one the best selling notebook PC currently on the market.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on 2 in 1 laptops that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Lenovo Notebook PCs Have Good Reviews

Lenovo 2 in 1 laptops have good ratings on average and across all portable PCs Lenovo is one of the superior manufacturers.

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to the Yoga 2 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 560MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,000MHz. At 1,100 megahertz, the Lenovo Yoga 2 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other laptops that have been around for a similar time to the Yoga 2.

Chart Edit

Intel Core I7 Processor Family

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo Yoga 2 has a front camera. Most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Yoga 2 also have a front camera.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs with a front camera and we think the Fujitsu LifeBook T904 (£1,362.86) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other notebook PCs which also have a front camera including the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, or the HP Elitebook Revolve 810.
