Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro boasts 13-inch 3200 x 1800 screen, that's plenty of pixels in anybody's language

Lenovo's follow-up to its flip-flopping Yoga Ultrabook is a real upgrade in every sense of the word. The Yoga 2 Pro adds fourth-generation Intel Core "Haswell" processors to the mix, but the standout improvement comes in the form of a 13-inch 3200 x 1800 touchscreen - that's four times the resolution of its predecessor.

The screen is also four times brighter, claims the Chinese manufacturer, at 350 nits, and is thinner and lighter. This season's model is 1.39kg and 15.5mm thin, 10 per cent less than the original Yoga.

Like its forebear, the Yoga 2 Pro can be folded to work as a laptop or tablet. It can also be placed in "tent" mode, allowing it to free stand if you need to show off a presentation or the like.

Battery life is claimed to last for up to nine hours, and both voice and gesture controls are built into the Ultrabook. Vocal commands can be used to spark off apps - saying "cheese", for example, will take a photo through the included camera. And you can use swipes to switch between pages - particularly useful if your hands are covered in flour. If they were covered in cheese and you verbally announced the fact, you could take a photo as you swipe. Probably.

The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro will be available from October for £1,100.
