Lenovo Yoga Book Review: Ecstatic, Erratic – The Harvey Dent of Two-In-Ones

Remember Harvey Dent? The charismatic district attorney of Gotham City (yeah, yeah, THE Gotham City where you find THE Batman) has a traumatic experience and thanks to a mutilated face, goes mad, and becomes a criminal known as Two-Face.

The times they might be a-changin’, but when it comes to browsers on computers, you might be forgiven for thinking that it’s yesterday once more.
