Average Battery Life
At 8 hours, the Lenovo Yoga 2 has a relatively typical battery life compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this age and spec.
We compared all the other 8h battery life portable PCs to this laptop and we think the Lenovo Yoga which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If this notebook PC battery life is not long enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (9h) which is also cheaper.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 1.7 gigahertz, the Lenovo Yoga 2 has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that are a comparable age to the Yoga 2.
