Inferior tablet, buggy connection to keyboard makes for an inferior "notebook"
2 weeks ago
Summary: Over the years I've had dozens (literally) of various notebook computers. I was looking for a Windows notebook computer that was the lightest possible rig, ideally with reasonable battery life, that I could take travelling with me for the sole purpose of running Remote Desktop. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10.1 inch with Lenovo's light keyboard is the very lightest I could find, especially so since it charges off a USB device so a single USB power adaptor would do for my...
Summary: The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10” running Windows 8.1 is an excellent value tablet with some premium features. The Yoga 2 builds on the excellent feature set and quality of the original Yoga tablets only now they are available running Android or Windows 8.1 (previous generations were only available with Android). The Cylinder: At first I was skeptical about the cylinder. Asymmetry is often frowned upon in the world of tech devices, but it really works for the Yoga tablet.
Summary: Not worth the money, not a good value. Was very dissapointed with my first windows tablet. I have had android phones and android tablets, but decided to try out a windows tablet to use some of my programs that I usually use on my desktop. I have had windows 8 on my desktop for well over a year, so I'm used to it. The problem is that windows 8 doesn't really operate the same on tablets. Pros: * Full version of windows, can theoretically run any windows program.

Summary: Do your research before buying this. Tablet is amazing minus on huge issue. All the reviews you've read about this tablet are correct. I purchased it two days prior to writing this review and instantly fell in love with it. What I do not love however is Lenovo's customer service and an unnamed (B)ig (B)ox store for not standing behind their products. Within in a few hours of using this tablet a crack developed by the hing area. Tablet was never dropped or mishandled.
Summary: Got it on Saturday. Love the screen, the weight, the flexibility. My only frustration so far is with Windows 8. I have a Windows 8 phone and like it, so I thought the tablet would be easy to use also. But there is a steep learning curve to figure out how to do things in Windows 8. I presume that I will master it. The computer itself exceeds my expectations at this point.
A neat form factor, excellent screen, zippy. Perfect for fun and reading. And even a bit of writing.

Summary: There are no 'official' reviews of this out there at the time of writing. So you're going to have to take a leap in the dark with this machine. Reviews like the ones posted here, and the videos (Frugal Fanboi - his review on this website and his YouTube video were very helpful in my decision). So, seeing that on Cyber Monday this tablet was $299 at Best Buy, I drove over there to have a play with it. I was intrigued with the form factor. I don't hate Windows 8.
Useful more as a "set up and view" device vs. a reader/tablet

Summary: Length:: 6:26 Mins Lenovo has an interesting Android device in the Yoga Tablet 2. It has a full 1080p 10.1" display and is powered by an Intel Atom processor paired with 2 gigabytes of RAM. As Android devices go it's very well equipped and performs basic tasks like web browsing, video playing, etc. nicely. The design also breaks the traditional tablet shape we've grown accustomed to.
Summary: For many users looking to purchase a sub-$500 Windows-based 2-in-1, the main choices will be this machine, and the Asus T100. I own both, so, even though this review is linked to the Lenovo, I'm going to discuss it in the context of a comparison. These machines are roughly comparable in price ($369 versus $349 for the Asus, at the time of writing), have 10.1 inch LCD touchscreens, have 2 GB of RAM, similar Atom CPUs, run Windows 8.1 and allow the tablet to be detached...
