Nevono yoga 2 ultrabook


New member
Hi everybody.
Posted the following on T:ane hardware thread but no one from N3V seems to want to reply, so perhaps a forum member can help.

Original. Post follows:-
I retired last october but have returned temporarily following serious accident to one of the senior staff. I have been given a Lenovo convertible laptop to accompany me on my travels whitch I have been very impressed with. Therefore, I am thinking of purchasing the following Lenovo yoga 2 to replace my pc. As these things are not cheap ,how do you feel it would handle T:ane.

It is the intergrated graphics that i am concerned about. Also the lower spec convertable i have now gets quite warm just doing normal office work especially in tablet mode. Therefore does anyone with any knowledge regarding these recently brought in laptop convertibles feel that the two forgoing points would be a problem when using software such as T:ane.

With thanks in advance for any replies.

I would think not as well since this is an Intel graphics-based machine. The overall specs are nice, however, the graphics will not work since the Intel chip is not generally supported well for games. One of the biggest problems is that it is built-in graphics which uses a hunk of the system memory for its own use. The chipset also doesn't support Open/GL very well and the overall performance is just poor. It's great for watching videos and playing light games, but when it comes to graphics and CPU you need all the horsepower and compatibility you can get.
