Summary: DO NOT BUY. Do yourself a favor - Search in Google for cracked monitor on Yoga 2 and you will find 1000's of complaints. I have been testing it for 5 months, sitting in my office, does not get moved, except an occasional closing and opening of the monitor.
Cons: WARRANTY, MONITOR GLASS CRACKS, WI-FI CONNECTION IS BAD
Summary: This is literally the worst computer I've ever owned. It looks awesome in theory but it is a totally failed execution. Just about every single function that you would expect a descent computer to be able to perform has bugs. Granted, some of these problems are due to Windows 8 sucking but as a system it's totally unusable. I wish I could get my money back and buy something else.
Summary: I wanted to love this laptop. I really did, but I had way too many issues out of the box. Overall, it's stable and awesome now, but it was an awful unboxing experience. Let me describe pros, cons, and issues: Pros: - BLAZINGLY fast! I opted for the 512GB SSD, 8GB RAM with the i7 processor. This thing reboots faster than some of my old computers could wake up from sleep. - Tablet mode is fantastic.
Summary: I wanted to love this computer. I spent months doing research and then purchased from Best Buy. I procrastinated for 3 months doing the big move from my old Dell, but finally started moving things. Everything was fine moving files over using the external HD until I started to download all my Big Fish games. The downloads would stall and repeatedly timed out. First I blamed TWC and then thought it was the wi-fi problems.
Summary: I can count on one hand the number of reviews I've posted but I'm so disappointed in this product I wanted to steer others clear. The wifi on this device is so bad that it borders on absurd that it made it through any sort of reasonable product testing process. It routinely drops out on my home network. I can't connect to my iphone wifi at all although I have figured out how to use the bluetooth to connect to the iphone as an access point.
Great computer. Bad company and poor quality parts

Summary: Cons The computer hard drive failed within ten minutes of unboxing. Lenovo wanted to spend upwards of two months with repairs. I have yet to receive a refund. Pros This yoga was screaming fast. The screen was brilliant, the OS intuitive, the chassis felt sturdy and looked like a high quality machine.
My take-away -- never again buy computer through Amazon

Summary: I had problems with wi-fi when I took it out of the box. A call to Lenovo fixed that problem, and then after a very short time with annoying but tolerable features (ridiculously jumpy screen, etc.), significant issues surfaced. (problems shutting off/restarting, windows that wouldn't open, etc.) It didn't occur to me that the problems would be unfixable and that I should immediately send back the computer I had JUST paid over a thousand dollars for.

Summary: Bought this for my wife because CNET rated it highest. It is still completely useless, neither of us can do one thing on it after 2 months. After being on the phone with Lenovo for hours, they told me to return it. When I peeled the serial number sticker off the box it came in, there was a piece of another sticker stuck to it that had the letters REFURB on it. This fragment matched up with a sticker that was scraped off the box before being sold to me as a new computer.
