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.
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: It was not as I expected. Although I like the lightness of the Lenovo, I find the screen reduces itself instantly - and I have problems finding out how to increase the text. And the screen in the sun is horrible again. I tried to buy something from Amazon that would cut down the glare and that did not work either.
Summary: I bought this computer for my job because it supposedly met minimum memory and speed capacity and is lightweight...unfortunately it won't run the surveyor software I need. Technical support from Lenovo is non existent. I gave the computer to my husband who has arthritis and the touch screen works well for him. So, ok for him, not for me. Still using my old DELL Inspiron and it runs all the software I need.
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.
almost considered keeping it despite freezing issues

Summary: hardware, feature set, and interface are fantastic. This is THE tablet convertible to have in 2012/2013. However, the unit freezes periodically (about 1 time per day with light use). At this price point, I wasn't willing to put up with it.
Summary: The specs are great, the laptop works as expected except for ONE thing. A big selling point for this laptop (among other things) is the various positions you can use it. Therefore, I would expect that perk to work well! When it's in the regular laptop position with the keyboard in front, the screen becomes flimsy.
Summary: Tons of problems with touch pad either too sensitive or not working at all - even after installing the power manager that was supposed to fix everything. Had to do hard reset multiple times. Windows 8 - not impressed. 360 rotation is great. Windows app store really stinks.
Summary: Pros: -Design and functionality -Very fast boot -Super-fast SSD Cons: -Heavy as a tablet -WiFi adapter has issues! -Current pricing is hype (early demand) based, would likely drop by $300 - $400 in a few months, then it can be considered, suggest waiting -Trackpad has response issues -No rear camera in tablet mode
