Useful more as a "set up and view" device vs. a reader/tablet

Summary: 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.
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.
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...
Yoga Tablet 2 Windows - BT Keyboard Power switch Extremely difficult to turn on

Summary: Love the tablet. It is a perfect replacement for my father (70s) who wanted to replace his 4 year old slower than molasses HP 11" laptop. You have to pair the Bluetooth keyboard, if you are familiar with pairing on a win8 PC, its no big deal, but it is a task that needs to be run after win 8 installs and configures. Only one complaint. Having an extremely hard time trying to turn on and off the BT keyboard.
Summary: This is an awesome tablet. It has a really long battery life. The resolution is crystal clear and everything on it works well. The only drawback I can think of is I haven't figured out how to connect it to a projector in order to do presentations.
Summary: I am quite happy with this tablet. Battery life is wonderful. The ergonomic battery bar is great for better sound, comfort and battery life. Price makes it a great value too. My desktop computer has nearly been forgotten.
Summary: When I first seen this tablet on Amazon I had thought to myself "the specs on this tablet are awful, it's going to be rubbish.." So I figured I'd buy it and give it a try anyways; I'm a big fan of lenovo and have their yoga laptop and really enjoy it. So after I got it I realized how much easier its to use the tablet with most of its weight in the large grooved part at the bottom.
Summary: I put 4 because I don't use it. I gave it to my husband for Christmas. He has never had a tablet or anything like it. It has been really easy for him to use and learn on. The picture is just fine. The battery last a long time. Which is really nice for him. If I were to get a tablet for myself I would go with a Lenovo.
