Looking for a Microsoft Surcafe Pro 2 alternative

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey folks. Dad will get a new laptop that is also a tablet. Such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 2. What are our alternatives?

 

Edit : This seems affordable. How is the Acer Iconia W511?

Hey thanks tuffy

 

Well I am also looking at a Lenovo Yoga13.. It seems great but I guess it is not deattachable. Not a big issue though.

 

Anyone used the Lenovo Yoga13?

Yoga is super hype but I think it is highly justified I believe that it has a crazy high resolution.

The yellow issues arise because of lenovo's incorrect power management... it can be alleviated by setting "performance mode" in the power manager.

I read yesterday that lenovo just released a bios fix for this, source: http://forum.notebookreview.com/ideapad-essential/737488-yoga-2-pro-yellow-color-bios-fix-now-available.html
