Yoga 2 13 (not Pro) - Backlit keyboard or not?

2014-03-21, 3:31 AM

There seems to be a lot of confusion about the Yoga 2 13 (not Pro) and whether the keyboard is backlit.  On the Lenovo Shop site, there have been two questions about this and both times the Lenovo staff have said the keyboard is not backlit.  However, the User Guide on the Lenovo website for the Y213 includes instructions for turning on the backlight and the Y213 model being sold at Best Buy has a backlit keyboard.  I am only interested in this model with a 256 SSD and will have to purchase it directly from Lenovo but will not purchase it if, in fact, the keyboard is not backlit.  Can someone from Lenovo please provide some clarity on this?

Bumping this hoping someone with Lenovo will provide a definitive answer.  Again today, the Lenovo staff on the Shop website said the keyboard on the Yoga 2 13 (not Pro) does not have a backlight while a customer said it did.  I would really love a clear answer before purchase to avoid an unnecessary return.  Thanks!

Having looked at the psref for IdeaPad notebooks I couldn't find a single Yoga 13 model where it indicated a backlit keyboard, it seems the staff from the website are correct.    http://lenovo.com/psref/

The images on the Lenovo website show the keyboard light icon on the space bar of the Yoga 2 13. Fn+SpaceBar turns the backlight on/off on my Yoga 2 Pro. Not definitive though...

The Yoga 2 13 hardware maintenance manual only mentions backlit keyboard parts.

Have Yoga 2 13 and it has backlight keyboard - there is only 1 setting on or off via Fn+Space.
