Summary: I like how people react when I flip it back and use it as a tablet. This was purchased refurbished so its not perfect and acts up sometime but still works. The battery life is awesome! The cons are that I can download anything else thats not already in the play store. its great for work and play but cant be modified as much as I would like to modify it. Its very thin and light weight which makes it easy to carry.
Summary: Bought for some one else. They seems pretty happy with it for the most part. Had a few issues in regards to software compatibility. Software I run on my own Windows 8 rig so the OS is not at fault. Other then that though a great little device.
Summary: I like the device well enough when it worked for the first 2 months. Then not long after I upgraded to Windows 8.1RT (about a week) I plugged the computer into my surge protector and went out to dinner with my family and some friends. Came home and the DC in port (power port) fell apart when I unplugged it and Windows wouldn't load. I called Customer support they tried to talk me through a reset using the one key recovery key.
Summary: I have had a horrible time finding a hybrid that passed my test! I have had two Surface II's and an Acer Inspire laptop with touch screen. All needed to be returned due to quality and/or faultiness. I just opened the box on my Lenovo Yoga II. I ordered a reconditioned model this time. So far, so good! The touch screen and track pad are perfectly responsive, which wasn't true for the Acer. Plus, it seems fairly fast. These are my initial thoughts.
Summary: At first I wan't sure about the touchpad, but now I'm hooked. Hard to imagine using a keyboard again. Also once you get used to the new screen layout, it's hard to use the desktop again. For most users, this design really will speed things up.
Summary: I like the laptop, but not the operating system. I have windows 8 on another computer so I am familiar with it but, I brought it to do genealogy and it will not let me download the program I am using so it is useless for that reason.
Summary: This machine is very fast. WIN-8 (RT) is very easy to deal with. The only issue I have is that the keyboard is not back lit. The battery life is very good. This is NOT a PC. It is a tablet. So If you need to download a lot of specialized programs, (Chrome, Firefox, etc) this is probably not for you! When I looked at the file tree, I see a folder for Windows NT. If WIN RT is based on WIN NT, then it is a very good and stable OS.
Summary: Great deal, performs exactly how it states. I was a little bit wary of windows 8.1 but It doesn't seem to bother me. If you are looking for a good tablet that comes with a full office app based build this is definitely a smart choice.
