The Lenovo Yoga line of tablets gets a new member with a 13-inch Yoga Tablet 2 running Windows 8.1. This joins the existing 8- and 10-inch Yoga Tablet 2 and features a kickstand that houses a long-life battery of up to 15 hours. The kickstand rotates nearly 180 degrees to allow using the tablet in four different modes: hold, stand, tilt, and hang, whatever that might be.
This Yoga Tablet 2 has an Intel Atom processor and a 13-inch display offering a good (2,560 x 1,440) resolution. The kickstand functions as a stand and as a grip for tablet use.
