The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro takes a proven winner of a machine with its morphing multimode form factor still as its calling card and provides new welcomed design enhancements on both the inside and out. Housing the latest 4th generation Haswell processors and loaded with Windows 8.1, the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro has been refined to produce an even more efficient way for users to take full advantage of unique 360-degree flip and fold design. One of the newest features of the Yoga 2 pro is the high-resolution QHD+ touchscreen with a resolution of 3200×1800. This incredible resolution is improved upon with IPS technology. The benefits of IPS include a 72% color gamut that produces vivid colors, brighter backlight, and very wide 170° viewing angles. With 350 nits, it is 16% brighter than the previous Yoga 13.
