Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 2 Pro Vs. Sony Vaio Flip: Specs, Features, Price [VIDEO]
The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 is one of the best laptop-tablet hybrids to come out this year, where its user-friendly design, flexibility and computational power make it a favorite among customers. The Sony Vaio Flip PC however, shouldn't be overlooked either - the flexibility is also there, where the International Business Times calls it a "Windows 8 Powerhouse." Although there is similar form and function between the two computers, there are also some differences between the two that could make a difference in decisions made by potential customers.
As previously reported, the Yoga 2 Pro features the standard dual-hinge design allowing display to be in four different modes- tent, stand, tablet, and laptop. Unlike the previous models, however, it features a 13-inch multi-touch display with a 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution. It is also lighter and thinner than previous models, measuring in at 0.61 inches thick and weighing 3.06 pounds.
It features a Core i7 processor with integrated graphics, and up to 8GB of DDR3 memory. Storage options include 128, 256, or 512GB SSDs, and I/O ports consist of one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, micro HDMI, and an SD/MMC card reader.
The device will be in stores in October at $1,099.
The Sony Vaio Flip is available in 13, 14 and 15-inch models, with a digitizer pen for better use. It features a full HD screen, and the 15-inch model has 2880x1620 resolution Triluminous display. The flip is different, where the screen actually folds into a tablet. This is done with a hinge on the upper lid, forming a horizontal line from left to right. It folds back along the line to tilt back, where it can then be pushed into a tablet, according to CNet. The only problem is, that it doesn't go completely flat. Because of this, it is a bit bulkier than most tablets and laptop convertibles, weighing 2.6 to 4.6 pounds.
The features includea standard Windows 8 or Pre version which users can choose from. It runs on Intel Haswell Core i7-4500U processor, featuring 16GB of DDR3 RAM. Connectivity options include HDMI, USB 3.0, Bluetooth and Ethernet. According to PC World, The 13-inch comes with 128GB SSD as standard equipment, while the 14- and 15-inch models will be outfitted with mechanical hard drives, with SSDs available as optional upgrades.
This will also be available in October, with no set price yet.
