Help! When will the next generation of Yoga 2 pro will be available????

2014-05-06, 1:11 AM

After much research and user feedback it looks like the yellow issue has not been adequately resolved.

I was literally a click away from this purchase but cant justify a computer purchase as damaged goods.

Anyways....would the group know when are these models typically released? I guess I will need to wait or go with a Fujitsu/LG/Samsung as runner up which I really do not want to do.

 

thanks for reading

It's pretty well resolved on my laptop.  I don't know what people who haven't resolved it area doing incorrectly, but my yellows look fine.  I also calibrated my display with a Spyder4Pro as an added bonus, and it looks really great.

If you are concerned with the yellow, it has been fixed already. The backlight runs at maximum brightness optimizing the 'yellow' color accuracy. The Yoga 2 Pro uses a pentile display, so colors will never be completely perfect. But I am very happy with the results after performing the BIOS update and updating Lenovo Energy Management.

You can also consider the Yoga 2 13 or the ThinkPad Yoga with a Full HD display. The Yoga 2 13 is also a little bit cheaper, the only difference is the display.

The Yoga 2 13 has a spinning disk with proprietary interface.  This is a real deal breaker for me.

Gents,

 

Thanks for your quick and informative feedback.

 

Unless the mods removed it there is a very fresh ongoing thread in this forum about resellers complaining about the number of returns due to this defect.  When I do a simple google search there are still very current comments.

 

Maybe these all could be the same individual across all forums, etc...

 

I am now back on the fence....I noticed this Yoga Pro 2 was released around October 2013???

@hobbitz: you can upgrade to a SSD quite easily, all you need is a TX3 screw driver. Also there are models with a 256GB SSD available: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/lenovo/yoga-laptop-series/yoga-laptop-2-13/

@jj28west: it is not a defect, it is just technology. The Yoga 2 Pro uses a RGBW pentile screen. To read more about it read the first two paragraphs over here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Idea-Windows-based-Tablets-and/Yoga-2-Pro-Pentile-matrix-RGBW-characteristics-and-display-of/ta-p/1294793

Yes the Yoga 2 Pro was released in October 2013, the BIOS update that fixes or improves the colors was released in mid November 2013.

If you are in doubt you can always grab the Yoga 2 13 which is almost the identical twin of the Yoga 2 Pro with a regular IPS panel.

I have a Yoga 2 13 and resolved the spinning disk problem by using the empty M.2 SSD slot and installing a Crucial M550 M.2 128GB card.  I now have a very fast boot on an SSD that has a 370MB write speed (better than some Y2Ps).  The Y 2 13 cost me $799 and the SSD cost $99.  Now I have a Yoga 2 13 with a 128GB Windows drive and 500GB for media storage.  And I now get almost 9 hours of battery life for browsing and email usage according to powercfg /batteryreport.

 

By the way, in some reviews, the full HD screen scores are excellent with a higher contrast and better color fidelity than the Y2P screen.
