I was always one of those people that said I didn’t have a need for a tablet because what could a tablet do that my phone and/or my laptop couldn’t? Of course, that’s before I discovered the Lenovo Yoga 2 Tablet Pro. It isn’t like most tablets, and I’ve found a way to ease it into my everyday life. It has features that many other tablets can only dream about.
The tablet was designed by Ashton Kutcher, who is Lenovo’s product engineer and was hands-on in the concept and development of the product. I think we all know how hectic Ashton’s life can be, so if this Lenovo tablet can keep him organized, that I think it can definitely work for anyone, no matter what your lifestyle may be.
As a full-time sales coordinator in hospitality, a blogger, YouTuber, a wannabe author, and a dog mom, life can get pretty hectic sometimes, but my tablet keeps me from going insane, especially when it comes to my writing.
This is what a typical day looks like with the use of my Lenovo Yoga 2 Tablet Pro:
I use my tablet as my alarm in the morning, and I like to set it across the room so it forces me to get up and turn it off. Sometimes, I’m guilty of falling back asleep, which is why I have a second alarm just in case. I also use it as an alarm to let me know it’s time to leave for work and make sure I’m not running late.
Before I leave for work, I like to check the weather and help that determine what my outfit will be for the day. It’s handy to know if it’s going to rain so I don’t wear white or anything sheer or if it’s going to be a little chilly, I can quickly grab a jacket.
While I’m at work, I look at my calendar to see if I have any appointments or engagements for the day. I also use it to keep track of birthdays, lunch dates, and for any plans I may have after work.
I use the Evernote app to keep track of my tasks for that day. I’m a big believer in lists, and I love being able to check things off of my to-do list. I love Evernote because you can set reminders for yourself or share the note with others and collaborate.
During my lunch break, I like to get a little blogging time in. I use the Facebook app to keep up with The Blogging Elite, a Facebook blogging community that I created with the help of my friend, Nina. I also use Evernote to see if there are any blog tasks I can quickly get done while I’m off the clock.
I use the Inbox by Gmail app to keep up with my emails, including any comments that anyone may have left on my blog posts, inquiries about collaboration posts with brands or bloggers, and anything else that may come through.
Throughout the day, I’ll use Evernote to keep up with any ideas that may come through my head, whether it’s an idea for a blog post, YouTube video, a character or plot for a book I may write one day, etc. I really love having Evernote close by me at all times, and I love that it syncs between my Lenovo tablet, my phone, and my laptop.
Another frequently used app on my Lenovo tablet is Google Drive. You’d be surprised by how many documents I’ve created with it. I use it for my blog for giveaways, keeping up with sponsorships, documenting my blog earnings, etc. I also use it for The Blogging Elite, so my co-founder and I can easily edit documents, share ideas, and collaborate. For real life, I use it to keep up with my movie and book collections, planning future vacations, expenses, an ongoing list of wines I’ve tried, and so much more.
I’m a big fan of multi-tasking, and that’s one of the things that the Lenovo Yoga 2 Tablet Pro helps most with. While I’m on my laptop writing or editing a blog post, I can catch up on YouTube videos or even start binge-watching a Netflix show. It has a little stand in the back which makes it easy for me to set it on my night stand or even next to me in bed while I use my laptop to catch up on work for my blog, YouTube channel, or my first book that I’m currently in the middle of editing.
Before we go to bed, Jon and I often like to watch a bit of TV, but we don’t have the cable hooked up in our room. While the tablet screen is plenty big for us to be comfortable watching it together, we do like to take advantage of the one blank wall we have in our bedroom. My favorite feature of this Lenovo tablet is the Pico projector. We literally use it on a daily basis to watch TV together (right now, we’re currently rewatching every episode of Friends). It’s also perfect if we want to have friends over for a movie night or practice a presentation for work.
A few of my favorite features of the Lenovo Yoga 2 Tablet Pro:
// Versatility: I can use it like a typical tablet or I can use the stand to prop it up. I can also put out the stand and flip it to the top and use it at a tilt. I could even hang it on the wall using the hole in the stand. I love that there are so many ways for me to use it.
// Long-lasting battery: It’s crazy how long the battery on this tablet lasts. Jon and I can watch several episodes of Friends (or any other TV show for that matter) and the tablet just can’t stop, won’t stop.
//Pico projecter: Like I mentioned earlier, this is probably my favorite feature of the tablet. I’ve always wanted to get a projector, but I think having this tablet is even better than just having a projector because I also get so many other awesome things rather than just one.
As you can probably tell, I’m in love with my Lenovo Yoga 2 Tablet Pro, and I really have found a way to incorporate it into all aspects of my life. I’m officially a believer in owning a tablet, but only if it’s this one. I love that it’s lightweight, and I can use it anywhere, and I’ve taken it with me on numerous leisure and work trips. I’ve also purchased a case for it (found here) so it can better fit my personality and of course also protect and prolong its beauty.
