Mark Twain, Amazon

  • Summary: It is a 13" laptop but the size is more like 14" because of a huge black frame round the screen especially at the bottom. Plastic is kinda cheap for this price. Power and other buttons on the side are very ugly and very cheap. The screen resolution is amazing and similar to mac book pro retina.

Don't buy until Lenovo fixes bluetooth and wifi bugs!

Stuart Riley, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: I have one of these, and after a bios update, and a new bluetooth driver (both installed today), the #$%$ thing is still buggy! Over $1000 and they can't get bluetooth and wifi to work reliably? I recommend everyone hold off buying this until Lenovo figures out how to fix this.

great size, great feel, FRUSTRATING problems

teachersue, CNET
3 June 2014
  • Summary: I love the feel and portability. Screen resolution is fantastic. I'm SO frustrated with the problems I've had, though. The touchpad is WAY too sensitive, and causes cursor to jump all over screen, as well as close out windows I'm working on and flip back to the app screen. It causes me to have to move more slowly than I did on my last laptop. Have had to contact customer service a number of times, taking way too long for far too little outcome.
  • Pros: size, weight, resolution, keyboard, touchscreen
  • Cons: crazy-hyper touchpad, screen flips out, problems running browser, customer service VERY time-consuming

wifi performance is a shame

siliconian, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: I like the design and the weight. it fits my work needs very well. But as a high end ultrabook, Yoga2 Pro is expected to excel in every aspect. Unfortunately Yoga 2 Pro uses Intel N7260 wireless card, which has extremely poor performance. That's why so many Yoga 2 pro owners have wifi connection issues such as dropping signal or no connection. Mine can only connect to a router within 2 yards range. Intel should be the one to take the blame.

Nice ultrabook, but some software does not play well with the 3200x1800 screen

G. SALMON, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchased a refurbished Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro (i7, 8GB RAM, 256 GB SDD). It took a little getting use to Windows 8.1 but manageable In general, I am happy with laptop as a lighweight ultrabook. but very little of my usual software are "metro enabled". So most software opens on a "desktop" just like Windows 7. Additionally, less that 25% of my usual software can not understand the QHD resolution and is not usable at 3200x1800.

There are still several serious flaws in the Yoga 2 Pro and they're not getting resolved by support

Joseph Loewi, Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: You can read about the positive aspects of the new Yoga 2 Pro elsewhere. I bought the Core I7, 8mb 256gig unit. There are many pluses to the newest Yoga, it's fast, solid, sleek and light, so I'm pointing out some serious negatives I've experienced in the last two months. The often reported wifi problem remains the most serious and annoying issue. Given a strong wifi signal the unit performs flawlessly.

So-so performance; high-res is problem, not a bonus

mgbrown30, CNET
12 January 2014
  • Summary: High-res screen is not compatible with Windows or other software and creates display problems with font size. As usual, Microsoft, software vendors, and Lenovo are all pointing the finger at each other.
  • Pros: Various modes are nice., Laptop is a nice size and weight., The rubberized covering on the keyboard limits hand sweating (versus aluminum covers).
  • Cons: Screen resolution is too high and not compatible with Windows and much software, resulting in tiny font, particularly with remote desktop connection, unless you change resolution before using certain software.
