Lenovo’s Yoga Ultrabook was one of those few devices that showcased an innovative design with a hinge design that allows the device to flip its screen all the way back giving the laptop different configurations in terms of use.

Today, Lenovo is upgrading the Yoga with the Yoga 2 Pro. Aimed at the business market, the Yoga 2 Pro features Windows 8 pro and an upgraded display with a QuadHD resolution (3200×1800 pixels). It is also slightly thinner and lighter than its predecessor.

The Yoga 2 Pro now runs on fourth-generation Intel Core Processors with a battery that will last up to nine hours. It also has an Intel Wireless display as well as a back lit keyboard. Lenovo has also added a new software utility called “Lenovo Picks”, which automatically detects what position the notebook is in, and shows a list of apps that might be relevant for that position.

There’s also a Phone companion app that goes with the device’s laptop mode to copy files like documents and websites to a mobile phone in the form of a text message. Other Lenovo-branded software installed on the device include a photo-retouching app called Lenovo Photo touch, an app that adds filters to photos called Lenovo Camera Man and a recipe app with motion and voice control called Lenovo Chef.

The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro will be available in October for a suggested retail price of US$110.
