review request: yoga 2 pro 13
      #45614 - 11/14/13 12:16 AM

I am curious to see you review the new Yoga 2 Pro. This laptop interests me because of the attractive price (especially on Lenovo's site) for the specs you get. I'm concerned about the reports that the screen has problems correctly displaying yellow. My understanding is that the temporary solution is to adjust the power settings so that full brightness is on, but then this impacts battery life--which defeats one of the main points of buying an ultrabook. I enjoy your thorough video reviews on products and so I thought I'd put my request in for this. Thanks!

We're still waiting for our Yoga 2 Pro review unit. For some reason it's taking a long time. The yellows are indeed more like mustard, but I'm guessing Lenovo is working on a software update to at least improve yellows when the Yoga 2 Pro is plugged into AC. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus uses the same panel but it displays yellow correctly when plugged into power.

Update: we'll have our Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro up this week! Yay! And Lenovo's BIOS update did help the yellows look more yellow.

That's great! Thanks for the update.

Since you mentioned the ATIV Book 9 Plus uses the same panel, would you be willing to do a smackdown between that and the Yoga 2? The Samsung retails for 1399 and on Lenovo's website (which frequently offers promotional discounts) you can get twice the memory and twice the storage (while maintaining an i5 and super high resolution display) for the same 1399. If Lenovo's update has remedied the yellow problem then I am wondering if the premium materials and quality of the ATIV Book 9 Plus justifies the, at least on paper, lesser specs.
