Very good machine

 

A really great, useful laptop!

Thin. Light. Great touchscreen. Good computing for price. Good design - solid. The several modes are very useful, esp. when watching videos

More useful as a laptop than a tablet because it's still a little heavy for tablets

Consumer review by:

Great ultrabook, good tablet

 

Overall, it's a good device.

Battery life is very good, charges fast. Performance is great, the SSD. It's also fairly rugged - after three drops, only slight cosmetic damage. The touchscreen is very good

Windows 8. :( And I wish it were a bit lighter

Great ultrabook

 

Overall i will recommend this laptop to anyone who asks. The Laptop is 5 stars for being a laptop and probably 4 stars for being a Tablet. Like all of the professional reviews out there its a laptop first and tablet second.

The 13 inch while many complain about its size is the perfect ultrabook screen size. I don't want to be squinting to read the tiny text of the 11 inch. If i wanted a 11 inch semi tablet product i would buy a Ipad. The keyboard is very responsive and is...

The only con I can think of is that it still uses the older 3rd generation of Ivy bridge intel processors. The laptop will probably be refreshed come Christmas time so if you can wait i would wait for that. Also I picked up the laptop from staples for...

Good Step In Right Direction

 

I use this laptop as an travel computer when I am away from my overly powerful desktop. I normally hate laptops, but this is alright. Definitely the best ultrabook on the market right now in terms of features you get for the price, and overall quality.

So far I am very pleased with this laptop. Going into the purchase I was most concerned about the build quality around the hinge. The connection is very sturdy, and the mechanism that earns it "convertible" status is by far the best design by any...

1 Egg off for ridiculous 8 hour battery life claim (more like 4-5 on power saver), possibly shaky wifi, and excessive bloatware that comes with it

Cool laptop

 

Light, fun and easy to use. Nice touches all around. Can compile, surf and play wow and rift

Bit pricey, track pad gets in the way of typing sometimes

Consumer review by:

Not bad

 

Have been installing big apps MS Office Pro, Project Pro, VISIO Pro etc and it is working well. Still takes some getting used to with Win8 but getting there. Not sure why newegg isn't showing the i7 version anymore...maybe price...

I like the build quality. Win8 is OK on touch screens and am getting used to it. I got the i7, 8GB, 256GB so am happy with speed, memory and storage

Too bad this doesn't have digitizer...would have gotten 5 stars easy. Not crazy about the keyboard being exposed when in full flip tablet mode

Consumer review by:

after 2 months - call it a 4.5

 

What I thought was a wifi switch is actually screen image rotation lock (as described in previous review). Lack of optical drive has not been a problem. The 128 GB SSD is OK for now but will become a limitation in a year or so. Will probably go to 256...

Beautiful display, thin, useful and used in all modes. Keyboard is beyond expectation for such a thin profile - excellent tactile response. When spouse took the the Yoga to a company sponsored Powerpoint class the Lenovo outpaced every other computer...

Biggest gripe is the 2.5 minute shutdown required for Wndows 8. My Acer Atom Netbook with Win 7 on Samsung SSD boots in 15 seconds and shuts down in 5 seconds with exactly same software installed. No help from Lenovo, Microsoft, or bulletin boards....

Lenovo Support Worse Than Dell

 

Lenovo tech support are worse than clowns. At least clowns make you laugh. First of all, they want $59 for recovery disks (class action lawsuit coming on that one). Secondly, their support group says they will call you back when they have no intention...

Lenovo (lack of ) Support

Great Experience

 

my use is a 70% laptop, 30% tablet so this is a perfect device. I hear whiners about the keyboard and the flexibility. I don't have any qualms, it just works. I slapped a 256 gig in the spare side. I got the i7 with 8/128. Runs cool, I also use for...

The only thing is some shortcuts, like insert. I wish Microsoft would include a first time video tutorial btw. I had to go to youtube to find one. I got mine on a deal, but you could consider this a little pricey, not apple pricey but up there, still...

Windows 8 - What have I done?

 

Very very nervous about the relatively high $ purchase. I have been a Microsoft supporter since 1982 but it seems MS has gone off the rails with Windows 8. The layered bipolar operating system looks like it would be great on a handheld but has...

Rating is for the computer, not the operating system. Good battery life, brilliant screen with wide viewing angle, great for movies or TV. Skype for Win8 was a strange surprise but works well

First computer ever that required reading the manual to turn on; still not pleased with also near microscopic Wifi switch - never sure if on or off. I am still in learning mode and trying not to prejudge maybe the biggest problem at this point is me....
