SD cards for the Yoga 2 Pro that don’t stick out as much

In general, the Yoga 2 Pro is an excellent upgrade over the original Yoga 13. One of the few drawbacks of the Pro 2 is that Lenovo made it so normal SD cards stick out (rather than sitting flush like on the original Yoga). Thankfully, there are some shorter SD cards that meant to at least partially resolve this issue. You can find some more info at the links below:   PNY StorEDGE 128GB Flash Memory Expansion Module (P-MEMEXP128U1-EF): Computers &

Which X220 USB port is the USB 3.0 one? [SOLVED]

Q.Which X220 USB port is the USB 3.0 compatible? A. It is the ‘blue’* one, the rearmost USB port located on the left side of the laptop near the fan exhaust vent.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga, Fn key fix w/function lock

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga defaults to having all the function (F1-F12) keys perform their alternate behavior and not their ‘function’ key behavior. For example, if you want to refresh a web page by pressing F5 you must simultaneously press and hold the Fn key, otherwise the key will function as ‘decrease brightness’ . What is even more annoying to me is trying to close a tab by pressing Ctrl+F4 (and it not working b/c you have to press Fn too)

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro display blanks when on battery?! [SOLVED]

Q. When I unplug my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro from the wall the screen goes blank. When I plug it back in the screen comes on. Unplug it and it goes off again?! How do I fix this! -Terri A. Hi Terri, your display brightness may be set to zero for ‘battery’ mode. Please try pressing your brightness+ key (it looks like a little sun with a plus sign and it is shared with the F6 function key) and see

How to enable Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga backlit keyboard? [SOLVED!]

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga is available with a backlit keyboard, here are photos of mine: However, Lenovo makes the “on” button for the keyboard backlight a little hard to find… you have to press the Fn key + the Spacebar key to turn enable/disable the backlight. 🙂 Overall, a very nice machine with a rather cool keyboard! PS here are some other Lenovo laptops that use the same keyboard shortcut!!!
