    Need some opinions on the levano yoga 2 11


    I took a look at this one the other day and was wondering if anyone has it and i would like your opinion of it, it is a 2 in one. Looks pretty neat
    one of my concerns is speed and i saw a small port for a hdmi but i do not think a regular hdmi will fit in it so what does one use to hook it up to a projector. It does not have a vga port so how do you hook it up to a vga projector? My projector does not have a hdmi port. I do not see a micro midi port on it, unless i am wrong, then i could get a micro mini vga adapter

    Hi, Robin. Out shopping again I see.

    Are you speaking of the Pro as here?: Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro: Laptop Tablet Hybrid - Multimode Ultrabook Laptop | Lenovo (US)

    Lenovo is making some awesome configurations. This is one of them. It should be powerful enough depending on resource architecture you get. It does have a micro HDMI-out port on it, so an adapter cable should work. Expect to pay some bucks for that unless they came down in price.

    If your not going to use this for more than your seminar presentation, a less-costly tablet may do as well. There are some nice ones.

    Good luck in your hunt.

    Or you could get USB - VGA (USB to VGA Adapter | eBay) or the communal Lenovo docking station.

    I travel a lot and always use VGA. I can't be faffing around with adapters so I'd probably go for an X240 but fortunately my old X201 is still going strong.

    Yoga looks nice though I must admit.

    no i am talking about this one

    i do not see a micro mini port on it, i see a micro hdmi port on it which is weird because it normally comes micro mini and you attach a vga or hdmi adapter, i have those. But this says hdmi port but i have here the same model but in the levano yoa pro 2-13, which i am demoing for the festival, i cannot find a micromini port on it, i assumed they are similar one is just bigger than the other and both have different processors, but i have not had a chance to play with this one and this one is way too expensive for what i need it for

    Here is a side picture of the levano yga 2-13
    The hdmi port you see, i just tested it by plugging in my two adapters to see if it fits, i have not tested it to see if it works, is very small. Looks like a micro mini one but it says hdmi on it

    When i plug in my vga adapter it seems to go in but i do not have the time to set up my projector to see if it actually works, maybe sunday before i pack them all up i will
    I have not physically held the yoga 2-11 only looked online to see the specs, so i do not know if it has the same hardware in it. I also have a usb to vga adapter. Since this does have 2 usb ports that mght also work
    Rember the picture is larger then it looks

    I need vga more than hdmi, most of the projectors including my own do not have hdmi, so it has to either hook up with a micro or usb vga adapter

    Well it says (Lenovo Yoga 2 Multimode Laptop | Multimode Laptops & Ultrabooks | Lenovo (US)) micro HDMI.

    As you have a USB-VGA adapter then go for that.

    True, but i still want to know if anyone here has one and what do they think about it

    Also the link you gave was for the yoga 13. Not the 11 so until i see it in the store i do not know if it has the same hardware
