Lenovo has announced a new Yoga tablet called the Yoga Tab 13. Featuring a 13-inch (2160 x 1350, 60 Hz) display and kickstand, the tablet doesn’t seem all that revolutionary at first glance, but it does boast a practical feature that laptop and desktop users might find useful: the ability to quickly turn it into a secondary, portable monitor. This functionality is easily enabled by the Yoga Tab 13’s micro-HDMI port, which supports HDCP 1.4 (a micro-HDMI to full-HDMI cable is included in the package). Available beginning this month for €799 (around $950), Lenovo’s Yoga Tab 13 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 3.2 GHz octa-core processor, Qualcomm Adreno 650 GPU, 8 GB of memory, 128/256 GB of storage, WiFi 6, and up to 12 hours of battery life.

More power-efficient and less reflective than other LCDs, its large 13-inch 2K LTPS (Low Temperature Poly-Silicon) display offers 400 nits of brightness and 100 percent sRGB color gamut. The panel is also powered by Dolby Vision HDR, which delivers incredible detail along with ultravivid picture quality. Enjoy spectacular audio with quad JBL speakers including the two built into its innovative soundbar; Lenovo Premium Audio tuning and Dolby Atmos combine for a more immersive audio experience. Plus, a bottom audio chamber helps achieve up to 450Hz bass performance for a strong audio effect you can feel.

  1. Not a bad idea. Wondered why they haven’t done this in the past. Apple did occasionally, but would often tie it to hardware upgrades on both sides (Sidecar), so it wasn’t a universal “second monitor” – and it was more like running VNC client/server on a virtual second desktop.
