Summary: Outstanding value/performance for the price. Bought for son going to college and as compared to another touchscreen laptop that I bought for myself (an Asus brand) I feel this one is better. More durable and substantial in construction and handling. More responsive and OS operates more efficiently. I chose this over the Asus and over Chromebooks as well. My son has not reported any issues with it after one semester at school.
Would have loved it, but wrong Item shipped. Nightmare ensues
14 November 2013
Summary: The Product was Not at all what I ordered. The computer was labeled as "new" shipping from Amazon. However what I received instead was a very well packed used computer with someone else's log in credentials! It was annoying to say the least to spend 100s of dollars and receive used product. Also returning the computer and actually getting my money back became a nightmare. Amazon was unable to return the money promptly and the kept barraging me with other "deals".
Summary: I like the lightness of the pad, and smoothness of mechanical works. I am not very "charmed" with Win8. It takes a good bit of rearranging of all ones ideas about managing Windows. Not all sure this drastic change was truly necessary. MS never heard of "It ain't broke....
Summary: The reason for the rating is when the system is used as tablet closing or open programs becomes difficult and at times it doesn't respond and I have to tab it several times. My ipad does not have this issue. Works right every time. Also at times I have convert it back to laptop mode to be able to close or open program or even shut it down. I think windows os need to do a better job with the touch screen of the unit.
Summary: love this laptop. i would prefer one with a bigger screen like a 16 inch screen since i do online college classes but it is very lightweight and easily portable. laptop is pretty expensive for the screen size but it is a very convenient laptop.
Summary: I have had my yoga for about 6 months and I absolutely love it. I have a tshirt shop and I use it for a monitor at work by flipping it so that the the keyboard is facedown and under the screen. I use it like a laptop at home on the arm of the couch, and I occasionally use it as a tablet if I am in a waiting room or sitting in a chair without arms. It is very light for a laptop which is why I first liked it, I can tuck it under my arm like a book and just go.
Summary: I have had a yoga 13 since Jan. 2013 Here I wanna report my experience about this laptop. The battery life is the biggest issue, which cannot last for 4 hours after 6 months of normal using. Besides this, the screen is good, but only compare to products on the market in Jan. 2013 Overall, not so good, consider carefully before purchase. PS: resale value of my laptop did not make me happy as well.
Summary: I took some time to rate this ultrabook since I bought it. I just can say that it was the best choice I ever made. Performance: It's extremely fast, very light weight and performance is brutal!!! Hybrid concept utlrabook-tablet works great in any context: entertainment, work, gaming, surfing the internet, and so on. Internet connectivity: Wi Fi internet adapter works great, it's very very VEEEERY fast. Windows 8 OS: Windows 8 is fine, but Windows 8.1 is amazing!
