Popularity of Convertible Tablets

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15 and 12, and the Fujitsu LifeBook T935 are convertible tablets. The Wacom Companion 2 is not a convertible tablet, but it's a device aimed at developers. Of the mentioned systems the Yoga 15 is the most popular on Google Trends. These systems are aimed, I'm assuming, to developers.

The Apple iPad and the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 are aimed at mainstream users. On the chart above you can see that the Surface Pro 3 is barely on Google Trends when compared to the iPad. You might have not noticed but the Yoga 11 is also on the chart--so incredibly low.

How to Fix the Blurry Text on Windows Programs

On the left and top-right windows we can notice smooth and crisp looking text, but on the lower right we can notice blurry text.  The issue may also present itself on programs like Steam, games, Leadwerks engine, your own apps made in Visual Studio, and many other programs.

When I received the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15 I noticed blurry text on some programs.  At first I thought the problem was with sections of the screen, but that wasn't the case.  Then I thought my eyes were just going bad, but this also was not the case.  There is something else going on.  This blurry-text is found in Windows 8 (and 8.1) systems.  Continue reading to see the solution.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 12 (2015/2nd Gen) - Ordered

Use coupon TECHBARGLEN01 to save yourself a good $70 off a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 12.

Since the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15 that I previously ordered did not have digitizer input I purchased a ThinkPad Yoga 12.  I was careful to order the latest available version.  Some history: in 2014 Lenovo released the first version of the Yoga 12, and in 2015 they released another version.  The names that the tablet has attained can lead to some confusion.  More information below.
