yoga 2 pro: a year later
I mentioned that I use my laptop as my main machine, so I thought I would share a few observations on it.
I got a lenovo yoga 2 pro a bit over a year ago now. There were a few hiccups at first, but they all were sorted out a while back and now pretty much everything works fine out of the box. The resolution is awesome (and works nicely with gnome3, a bit less nicely with Xfce, but still ok), secure boot just works fine, it’s fast, easy to type on, and in general a good laptop. I’m in no hurry to replace it (I bought an extended warentee from lenovo, so it’s still covered for a few more years). It’s really very similar to macbook airs that people rave about, except that battery life isn’t as good on the yoga but the yoga has a higher resolution display and is in general a more open platform to run Linux on.
Lenovo did just come out with the newer version: the Yoga 3 pro. It’s lighter and slimmer yet and has an amusing power connector that can also be another usb port. If someone wants to buy me one I’d be happy to test it out and review how well Fedora runs on it. 😉
