Summary: Comes with Windows 8. I really prefer 8.1, but the upgrade process takes forever. It's essentially a new install and then a lot of Lenovo post install bloat that makes the process take forever.
Pros: Only had it for one day, but it feels very fast and smooth. Screen is great! Looks incredibly sharp.
Cons: Camera is rough. Took a couple of test pictures and it was very grainy. Totally sub-par.
Summary: Disclaimer: I purchased a refurbished model from newegg not from amazon Pros: 1. Somewhat lightweight. The machine is not as light as an iPad or a MacBook Air but it is by no means heavy and holding it 768x1366 rather than 1366x768 makes the weight very manageable. 2. The "yoga" aspect of the Yoga 11s. Using a normal laptop after using the Yoga makes me wonder why no one in the computer industry implemented this idea on a mass production scale before. 3.
Summary: As long as you understand the limitations of this product, namely Windows RT, it's a great computer. The build quality is first rate, not a plastic piece of junk like most of the tablets out there. The keyboard is incredible, and you can actually do some work on it. The fact that it comes bundled with Office is a huge advantage for doing work right out of the box. I've had some issues with it recognizing my WLAN extender, but no problem with the router.
Summary: I've had the Yoga 11 for a few days now and my overall impression is very good. I have no trouble with Windows RT or the hardware on this device...however I think it important to note that I understood what my needs were and researched the device extensively (if I had not, I can see why some people may be disappointed because this is not a full Windows device#. The Yoga is great to hold, keyboard is comfortable and feels good.
Pros: Tablet and laptop in one...replaces two tech items
Summary: Being a mother of three and stay at home mom, I like to have things that can fit in with my teaching, as well as whatever I need it to do. Tablet mode is great for flashcards and storytime. I love that I have a small laptop that can meet my immediate needs. Now if I can get a disc drive for cheap, I will be completely satisfied.
Pros: compatibility to my surroundings, ease of use
Cons: can be slow, some apps aren't set up correctly
Summary: because it's Windows RT, i can't download google chrome or firefox on my computer. I can play flash games like neopets, but I can't play on tetris friends for some reason (probably bc it needs shockwave?) i wish it would let me download the browser i want, and allow me to play some other games.. This laptop is good for people on the go who will browse the internet, read books, and write documents on office (it comes with its own version of microsoft office).
Pros: Good price, can turn into tablet for reading books
Cons: Can't download Chrome, or any other browser/program
Summary: I only need a second (technically third if you count my work notebook) PC for web browsing and video skype. Needs to be lightweight to keep up with a two and a half year old toddler who enjoys cannonballs off the sofa. I purchased the Asus w/ E2, but it was VERY sluggish, even for my simple tasks. Found this Yoga on sale ($379 + $10 off w/ my rewards), so for ~$400 w/ tax, I thought I'd give it a try.
Pros: Lightweight, form factor, fine for simple use
Summary: This version uses the same NIVIDIA processor as my tablet. It's a quad core, unlike the twice as costly Intel powered version, and only needs the 2mb of RAM it comes with. The touch screen is bright and fast. While you can bend it around into a tablet, thus the Yoga name, fewer apps are available than with an Android tablet. But, while it's difficult to print from Android, the minute I turned it on it installed the software for my network printer. As fast as my MacAir.
Pros: Surprisingly fast, light, and comes with MS Office.
Cons: Needs a lighted keyboard, and a larger solid state disk.
