3 out of 5 eggsclose but no cigar

Pros: good screen, keyboard. nice specs. battery life.

Cons: wireless is absolutely miserable. ac adaptor comes disconnected too easily.

Other Thoughts: I had originally given this laptop a pretty positive review. You can see, there are some nice "pros" to the Yoga, which is why I bought it.

I need to use this machine for development using SSH. It is utterly incapable of maintaining a wireless connection for more than 10 minutes without dropping and reconnecting. It's tolerable, but annoying for things like web, but unacceptable for anything that must maintain a connection. I am one floor below, and directly under the router. No excuse.

So close to being my ideal Ultrabook. What a shame.

4 out of 5 eggsOnly one disappointment

Pros: Good specs for hardware. Speedy li'l machine. Ultra-portable with flexibility features (notebook, tablet, standing and tent modes...I won't use 'em--but ya never know...). I had really high hopes for this one... Lightweight, fast, portable, elegant.

Cons: Only one disappointment: WiFi does not receive 5Ghz Frequency at 40MHz bandwidth. So if you enjoy 300Mbs connectivity on your current wireless network--it ain't gonna happen with this device. Unfortunately, this is not disclosed by Lenovo in their product specifications. And since there is no Ethernet port, you are dependent upon wireless unless you get a docking station/port replicator, or some other USB Ethernet dongle...

Other Thoughts: I would not have purchased this notebook, had I known about the 802.11n WiFi deficiency. This is a real disappointment from a manufacturer like Lenovo. Yet, an Ideapad is not a Thinkpad... Remember this, business users. I will be sending this to my Mom; as I won't be able to use this in the capacity that I had hoped. I am a network engineer by trade, and being able to test and validate wireless network connectivity is important to me. I will be sticking to the TP W520 for the time being. Perhaps the Yoga 2 Pro will resolve this...???

4 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop

Pros: this was my first Win8 laptop and so far so good. I'm a computer science student and this fits all of my needs plus more.

Cons: you just have to remember that this is a laptop before its a tablet, but the fault mostly lies in Win8 and the lack of decent Win8 apps, hopefully these issues will be fixed soon.

Other Thoughts: i would recommend this to a friend if they want to get a windows 8 computer

4 out of 5 eggsso far pretty good

Pros: lightweight, thin, fast startup, crisp monitor, good computational capacity

Cons: track pad too large, misses some "tap" gestures, windows 8 not that great

Other Thoughts: I searched a long time when I decided that I needed an ultrabook. Looked into ASUS, Acer, Dell, lots of brands. ASUS had a sharper monitor, but for the money, I wanted a core i7, 8G, and a 256G SSD. This was the only one that had all that, plus it's a convertible and has a touch screen. I figured 1600x900 would be acceptable, which it is.

I love the portability and the touch screen is at times a convenience that I am still getting used to. The keyboard, compared to my last laptop (a Sager), is excellent. It occasionally feels a little sluggish, which I think has mainly to do with the wireless. Some of my other devices seem to have better wifi performance, which is a disappointment.

So far, my complaints are minor. Windows 8 is pretty lame. Tiles are a novelty, but anyone who wants to actually do anything will find the "Start" screen annoying. If you want a $1400 ultrabook to play Angry Birds, then maybe you'll like Windows 8.

My other main complaint is the track pad. It's pretty big and my pinky tends to find its way into the upper right corner as I'm trying to do stuff, and regular movements sometimes get interpretted as "pinch" gestures. I'm also used to being able to click left and right with my left hand, but you can't rest your left finger on the buttons or else your gestures will be mis-interpreted. This problem is made worse by the pad when it fails to recognize a "tap" as a left click. Moderately frustrating, but overall, I like this laptop very much.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed

Pros: Good screen resolution
Thin and light
Durable body with a quality field
Awesome hinge
Excellent keyboard.

Cons: Vent gets slightly hot in tablet mode
Occasional loud fan noises (at least loud comparable to the normal total silence, anyway).

Other Thoughts: I was looking for an all around laptop: I wanted to be able to use it as my main computer for work for a few months while also having a computer capable of general entertainment functions. I also needed it to be very portable. This computer performs awesomely at all three tasks.

I had read that on some yoga models, the realtek wifi chip has trouble maintaining a connection. I am happy to report that thus far, the realtek chip in this laptop has given me no problems.

I was also concerned about working on windows 8, as I use a large number of fairly specialized programs. Fortunately, windows 8 works just fine - maybe even a little bit faster. Two other things that greatly help with getting work done are the excellent keyboard and the good screen resolution (compared to many other laptops). The keyboard is a really high point - it took absolutely no time to adjust to it the keyboard the first time I used it.

I don't really like touch pads much at all, but this one seems fairly good - though to get anything done I would still use a mouse. The touch screen is quite nice however; using the computer as a tablet feels very natural, and the touch screen, to my surprise, is useful even when in laptop mode.

I was hoping to be able to play a few games on the computer, and was expecting to only really be able to handle lightweight games... fortunately that does not seem to be the case. With 8 GB of RAM and an i7, Civ 5 runs quite well.

Bottom line: this was a great purchase, and I envision using it for quite a while - first as a desktop replacement and work computer, and in the future as a household tablet/entertainment computer and as a traveling presentation computer.

3 out of 5 eggsYoga 13 is it good?

Pros: Great design

Cons: Delicate

Other Thoughts: After a very long time studying and learning about ultra books I decided on the Lenovo Yoga 13 with the i7 chip and 256Gig mSATA drive. I went on to buy it at Costco only to find that A: it could not maintain a solid Wi-Fi connection and B: it made a clicking sound, the only moving part is he fan so I figured it's a Monday morning build (after a hangover) so I had it replace. After a few days I received my second unit and noticed two things A: it was built the same day and B: only 18 units later (as per the serial #) it too could not maintain a solid Wi-Fi connection. I tried everything that was asked of me by the Lenovo tech support. Both units I reset three times every time I would update the windows 8 it too was returned.

I really like the Yoga 13 for the hardware as well as the software, so I gave it one more try and bought this unit from Newegg. Yes I must be crazy or something but now I have a fully working unit it was build a few months later it also has a different Wi-Fi driver version 1021.6.118.2013 dated 1/18/2013 this Wi-Fi is solid. I called Lenovo back to tell them but they would not even acknowledge their error and did not even know of this different driver. I don't know where this driver can be downloaded but if you have a different driver do try to get it.

1 out of 5 eggsIssues with keyboard and autorotate

Pros: Sleek, very beautiful design. Rubber-isque coating on keypad side to help with wear when in tablet mode. Battery life is pretty good for such a small form factor, about 4 hrs doing work and listening to music. Very nice vivid and sharp screen. The flipping screen seems trivial but I will admit is a HUGE plus...

Cons: Bottom line, it still seems to be in development stage: rushed out too early.

Auto-rotate function, the main selling point of the yoga series, is tantalizingly broken. It will refuse to rotate sometimes no matter how much you fidget with the switch. Rotating screen positions also seems like a catalyst for keyboard errors.

The keyboard goes rogue on you and turns on and off whenever it wants, even when you have had it sitting in regular position without any rotation. Sometimes it thinks the ctrl key is being held down, sometimes a shift key, other times it is just completely off for no good reason.

These issues are plastered all over forums and there are workarounds that you shouldn't even have been bothered to do in the first place. You will find yourself having to save and shutdown/restart in the middle of a project a lot.

How did these very basic and critical flaws ever make it past in house testing and QA?

Other Thoughts: Windows 8 takes some getting used to. I recommend removing all the pre-loaded apps and creating your own start menu app shortcuts.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Ultrabook, Good Tablet

Pros: Fast
Sleek
Good Battery Life
Decent WiFi Performance
Can do some Gaming (See Other thoughts)
Lightweight for a laptop

The rotating display is very nice! The screen is a good quality.

Cons: Heavy, bulky, and large for a tablet (not laptop)
Sound buttons don't change based on orientation

Other Thoughts: This is a very good laptop and a decent tablet. The Intel HD4000 graphics can do some light gaming. I'm able to run Civ 5 with touch enabled on low settings and get about 3 hours of battery life.

I would definitely recommend this laptop to others. It's design is sure to turn heads in a good way!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Experience

Pros: my use is a 70% laptop, 30% tablet so this is a perfect device. I hear whiners about the keyboard and the flexibility. I don't have any qualms, it just works. I slapped a 256 gig in the spare side. I got the i7 with 8/128. Runs cool, I also use for development which can put strains on PC, it handles everything fine. This thing is a monster. I have two extra 27 inch screens and I prop up the 13 in "stand" mode in front of my full keyboard/mouse.

Cons: The only thing is some shortcuts, like insert. I wish Microsoft would include a first time video tutorial btw. I had to go to youtube to find one. I got mine on a deal, but you could consider this a little pricey, not apple pricey but up there, still very well worth it.
