Summary: Okay, I've tried to sort out what makes this laptop such misery for me, since the laptop is new and it has Windows 8, which is new to me also. And my determination is...it's both. First, Windows 8. Navigation is silly. I am constantly correcting my last move, with the screen swooping and closing/opening and my having to get back to where I was working.
Summary: The first couple of months, the Lenovo Yoga was awesome. After I used it as a tablet and a laptop a number of times, the brackets no longer hold the screen up - there's no tension. I can use it for a short amount of time in the laptop position but only if the screen is slightly closed (just under 90 degrees) so it is uncomfortable to use bc it's awkward. If I open it to be a normal laptop position, it falls flat.
Good for 8 months, then the hardware broke. (Terrible Warranty Service)

Summary: So I had this laptop for 8 months now. All was well until one of the screw fell out without my knowledge. Since the screw was the one that was placed right near the hinge, the backing right out snapped once I tried to open the cover (probably from the pressure that it puts on the backing). Sent it to Lenovo and they said that its my fault that the screw fell out(like I picked at it with my fingers or something), so their decision was to charge me 250 dollars to fix it.
Summary: I would give this laptop a better review if it wasn't for the keyboard. Just resting your wrists on the edge of the laptop, random key presses will occur. I used it for a while, but it was such a pain to type on that I ended up giving it to my toddler. The touch screen is nice for a toddler though.
Summary: I hate to give a bad review but I'm not super happy with this computer. I read that it was a better laptop than a tablet so I took that into consideration but it's even more than that. More often than not, the screen doesn't sense when you touch it so you end up having to switch back from the tablet mode to laptop. Then at other times it's so sensitive you'll be popped back to the windows screen or somewhere else.
Summary: An over-all OK product with not-so-good support. Here are the good parts: It's an ultrabook so it's light (not impressively light) but certainly easy on the shoulders. The screen quality is not as high as that of a Mac Book but it's pretty high and the touch screen feels responsive. The outer shell of the laptop is Teflon-coated and it feels nice to the touch and it doesn't slip.
Summary: This laptop is quite thin and very sleek. It works well for my intended purpose - light enough to carry around all the time, but powerful enough to do software development. The double hinge is gimmicky and I have only used it to show off to other people. The device is most useful as a laptop. The touchscreen is somewhat useful, as it is better than the touchpad. The touchpad has a tendency to click twice when it isn't supposed to.
Summary: The Lenovo yoga looks great but that's about it. It loses connectivity to the internet constantly, and I've tried all of the "fixes" recommended online but nothing corrects the problem so make sure you have tons of patience if you decide to purchase this machine because you will keep getting bumped from the internet.
