Geek deals 250 off Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro ultrabook 79 for a

first_imgLenovo won a lot of awards last year for its cool little Yoga ultrabooks. The premise was simple, yet grand: a hinge designed to rotate the screen 360 degrees and a variety of new ways to use an ultrabook, from laptop to tablet and everything in between. When the 2013 model went to the drawing board, they set out to improve on the original Yoga and definitely succeeded.The star of the show here is clear: the 13.3-inch QHD+ IPS multi-touch screen. For those not in on the display resolution lingo, QHD+ comes out to 3200×1800 across 13.3-inches for an effective ppi (pixels per inch) of 282, compared to the MacBook Pro 13-incher’s shameful 227 ppi. It still rotates 360 degrees around and has a suite of pre-loaded Lenovo apps that are designed to maximize your use of the Yoga 2 Pro in its various usage modes.Of course a new laptop wouldn’t be complete without Intel’s 4th gen processors, so the Yoga 2 Pro gets your choice of Core i3, i5, or i7 variants. Every model comes standard with a 128GB (or bigger) SSD, a nice change over the slower mSATA SSD caches we typically see on entry-level ultrabooks. Extras like wireless-n, Bluetooth, an HD webcam, USB 3.0, and micro HDMI, all come standard.Despite all these features, the Yoga 2 Pro measures 0.61-inches thick and 3.06 lbs. Battery life is rated at 6 hours of 1080p video playback and 9 hours of idle usage, so expect your own experience to fall somewhere in there. Speaking of experience, it comes with the Windows 8.1 out of the box.Despite this model just going on sale yesterday, it’s already got some hefty discounts. Right now you can snag an upgraded model with Core i5, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD for $1149. That’s $250 off the list price and only $100 more than the base model (Core i3/4GB/128GB).Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro 13.3-inch Core i5 QHD+ convertible ultrabook with 256GB SSD for $1149 + free shipping (reg. $1399)Our other top deals:Dell P2212H 21.5-inch 1080p LED-backlit monitor with 3-year warranty for $116.99 + free shipping (reg. $199.99 | use coupon 9QB025WNJ3X$MJ | via Dell)OCZ Vertex 450 128GB SSD for $79.99 + free shipping (reg. $104.99 | via NewEgg)Halo 4 (Xbox 360) for $9.99 + free in-store pickup (reg. $29.99 | via Best Buy)last_img
