The Lenovo Yoga was a flip in the right direction for Ultrabooks when it was first released.
But it offered in style points - the ability to bend the laptop to your viewing preference - it didn't really match in spec appeal.
Having an Ivy Bridge processor inside and given a rather low-res 1,600 x 900 display means you are never going to win any awards in the power stakes.
But the wait is finally over for a new and even bendier Yoga - the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro.
Shown off at IFA 2013, the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro has been given a screen that's twice the quality of its stablemate. At 3,200 x 1,800, the 13.3-inch screen is one of the best on the market, and one of the brightest too at 350 nits.
Lenovo has also given the chassis a little bit of a makeover. It may look similar but it is thinner - 1.5mm instead of 17.1mm – and it has gone through more weight loss than a Bikram Yoga addict, weighing in at an impressive 1.4kg. To put the weight into context: this is around the same weight as Ultrabooks that don't have the flip factor.
Couple this with an Intel Haswell processor - up to Core i7, up to 8GB or RAM and a 512GB SSD - and what you have is a better and beefier computing setup.
Interestingly, Lenovo is pitching the ThinkPad Yoga 2 Pro at the professional crowd. With its improved display it will be hoping that creatives choose it over the MacBook Pro, which looks positively dull in comparison (its screen is a mere 2560 x 1600), and with the processing power it is packing it may actually have some chance.
From our brief tests with the device, the ThinkPad Yoga 2 Pro is a vast improvement on its predecessor. It's form factor is still as malleable as the original Yoga but it is lighter, more responsive and quite a bit quicker.
The screen is beautiful, the backlit keyboard is certainly welcomed and it also seems to hide better when you fold the Yoga into tablet mode.
When it is in tablet mode, it is still a chunky tablet unfortunately - but we still haven't found any laptop that changes perfectly into a tablet.
The Yoga 2 Pro does have some interesting new extras. We tried out the in-built Yoga Chef, which has a load of recipes for you to try out when the Yoga Pad 2 is in the kitchen. So far so normal, but gesture controls meant we could swipe through the recipe without getting our mucky paws on the screen.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 2 Pro release date of October, priced at 1299 Euros.
