It is a twin-hinge model, unlike Yoga 3 Pro's hexa-hinge and  keeps the Lift 'n' Lock keyboard from the original ThinkPad Yoga from 2013.

Yoga Tablet 2 comes with Intel Core-i5 processor with 8GB DDR3L RAM, 1TB Hard Disk, 16GB SSD cache and up to 8 hours of battery life. It also comes with 1GB Nvidia 840M graphics card for smooth graphics performance and a 14-inch full HD IPS touchscreen display.

It is not as thin or slim as Yoga Pro 3, but still, Lenovo's new flagship laptop, Thinkpad Yoga, can be called an ultrabook. It weighs 1.9 kg and is 20 mm thick, thus, it sits at the heavier end of the ultrabook spectrum.

As far as the connectivity is concerned, Yoga Tablet 2 comes with Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, HDMI, a card reader, two USB 3.0 ports and a HD camera.
