After announcing new 8-inch and 10-inch YOGA Tablet 2 models earlier this month, today Lenovo is announcing a new 13-inch model. Like the 8-inch and 10-inch models, the YOGA Tablet 2 13-inch has four distinct modes: Hold, Stand, Tilt, and the newest mode, Hang.
The YOGA Tablet 2 13-inch has a stunning Quad HD IPS display and comes powered by an Intel Atom processor. It also features cinematic Dolby Audio surround sound with a 5W subwoofer and a Wolfson Master HiFi CODEC chip that optimizes audio processing for studio-quality noise reduction. I bet music and movies look and sound great on this! And it gets up to 15 hours of battery life!
The YOGA Tablet 2 13-inch with Windows will be available beginning in November on Lenovo.com starting at $699.99 (U.S.).
