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: Best laptop I have ever had or even used. I prefer this Yoga 13 to the new ones. The touchpad is much larger, I prefer this design, the RAM isn't soldered to the motherboard, and there is an extra SSD slot.
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: Don't buy this. Everything worked fine for about a week or two, but a poorly soldered charging pin broke, making it impossible to charge the unit. The motherboard needed to be replaced in order for the laptop to work right. After contacting customer support, and being redirected to several different numbers, we were told that our warranty did not cover repairing the laptop and that it would cost $400 to get it fixed.
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.
