2 out of 5 eggsWorst laptop I've purchased in 10 years

Pros: good form factor. Size and weight are nice. Hinges on the screen are solid.

Cons: Bricked twice due to bad motherboard. Had to ship to Lenovo for repairs. I may just have a lemon. I really wanted this to be a great laptop, and shopped around a long long time before deciding on this. I have been totally disappointed by the shoddy construction, the screen ghosting, the down time due to things malfunctioning. The power button on the side of the unit only works with effort.
I cannot wait to replace this.

Other Thoughts: The brand of Lenovo has always implied quality to me, and I always assume their stuff to be well made. Not this time. So, my opinion of Lenovo has gone from high to very very low. This laptop is so bad that I doubt any other Lenovo products will be purchased by me.

5 out of 5 eggsGive me a break

Pros: Mobility,Construction, Weight, Performance, Battery Life
Where to start
- It's heavier than a tablet but not by much and it's a REAL computer. This is what Microsoft had in mind I am sure with Windows 8. Very easy to pick up with one hand, throw in a bag and go. This model has a cool trick that when you flip into Tablet mode the bottom of the keyboard rises up so that it's level instead of just feeling like a keyboard underneath the tablet. Good Idea! It's also a backlit keyboard which I love (can be turned off and on). The Screen is make of Gorilla Glass and is beautiful. Not sure why anybody is having GHOSTING problems. Not had single display problem and have played games on it, watched HD movies, etc.... It's onboard Intel Graphics so if you think you can play Battlefield 4 on it your smoking crack. But it's not meant to play those games so please don't ding it for something it's not designed to do. It's part of the Ideapad line (aka Business line), very sturdy. Sturdier than the first Yoga which was pretty good (i bought many 1st Gen Yogas for clients). It's not FLIMSY as others have said. That is absurd thing to say. The Yoga has been a hit for Lenovo and it's not because they're put together like a cheap toy. If you don't believe me just go play with one at a store. Not hard to figure out for yourself. We have the I5 with 128 SSD and 4GB RAM. That to me is the right balance between performance and price. Some models come with a stylus (ours didn't) but you can buy it after the fact. I just use my finger to scribble in OneNote, it looks good and the notes sync to my phone and desktop. I never thought much about Lenovo until the first Yoga came out but I have been impressed how they have taken Windows 8 and ran with it instead of crying about how terrible it is. And guess who is making money and growing their business......

Cons: Honestly, the cons are few. The screen can auto-rotate at times when you didn't want it to but there is a button on the side that will lock the screen. Some bloatware but not bad compared to other companies (Yea, I am looking at you Toshiba) and I have never seen a computer that had no bloatware.

Other Thoughts: I have setup or owned the first Yoga 13, the Yoga Pro 2 and the Yoga 2-1. It was/is the first mobile design where I said WOW so I tip my hat to Lenovo for being innovative instead of slapping Windows 8 on the same tired old laptops

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobile computer device!

Pros: A very complete laptop.
- turns on

- boot up is fast and convenient

- storage space is adequately large for an SSD

- enough storage to install, some to a couple, steam games

- touch screen is very responsive and reliable, awesome gorilla glass helps durability.

- screen is very refined and rich, high resolution on a small screen helps this

- metal body feels good to touch and brings a heavy feeling when carrying, which i think is nice

-metal hinges provides mental reassurance that this laptop is durable to fold or bend

- trackpad feels very good to use, trackpad has tactile-click response which is nice

- keyboard has a deeper feeling/press compared to most laptop keyboards based on my experience

Cons: - poor webcam quality

- screen dims slightly automatically when in the dark

Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop with the intention of playing games on the go. I wanted to make use of the games I have not played on steam. This laptop accomplished this personal goal for me.

This laptop is high performance in all aspects of a mobile computer.

the processor, the memory, the storage space, the speed of the SSD, the high resolution screen, the very tactile/deep keys for the keyboard, easy to use/tactile trackpad, metal body feeling, = its all great, this is all that I love about this laptop

despite a few cons worth mentioning this laptop accomplishes my need

if you have any questions for me about any user experience: my email is

hope this was helpful!

2 out of 5 eggsdisappointed

Pros: Solid build, fast processor, 8GB RAM, 256 SSD drive. Locked keyboard in tablet mode. Solid hinges.

Cons: Wireless connectivity has been the worst I've experienced. I had hoped with a later build date after numerous complaints in fall of 2013 that Lenova would have corrected this. I can sort of accept that the card is not dual band, but the connection drops continuously and consistently. Battery life is well below 5 hours. The track pad is infuriating.

Other Thoughts: I am so disappointed with the thinkpad line of the yoga. I hoped for more and should have heeded the negative comments of other reviews. Unfortunately, the connectivity issue is a deal breaker and this otherwise good machine is going to be returned. I'll re-purchase a future model if Lenova ever solves this problem. Software upgrades did not help. Use of a USB 3.0 ethernet dongle provided fast and reliable connection, but not helpful in mobile situations.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: Small, light, fast. I loved that the computer automatically downloaded the printer drivers for both my wired and wireless printers. (Don't know if this is Lenovo thing or a Microsoft thing.)

Cons: While I use it as a tablet, the touchscreen is not as receptive as my iPad.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased Thinkpads for years. This Thinkpad Yoga is great and I appreciated the ease of purchasing it from The Lenovo website is a nightmare. I chose the economy shipping option and my packages were delivered the very next day.

1 out of 5 eggsScreen has huge ghosting issues

Pros: Build quality, look, functionality, specs, features

Cons: Screen is faulty. This laptop is using a 12.5" LG screen with huge ghosting issues. Google Thinkpad Yoga watermark and will find hundreds of posts of users having this issue. Google Marco Retina test and will find the link with the test that exhibits the flaw of this screen. As for now Lenovo can NOT fix this issue because only LG makes this size of screens. Dead End.

Other Thoughts: Would have been an awesome laptop if they use any other screen than 12.5" LG lemon.My images stay on the screen 8-10 minutes after initial image is gone-on a gray background-using Marco retina test. I open an email for 5 minutes and I can read email 3 minutes after it was closed.

1 out of 5 eggsScreen has ghosting issues

Pros: Hinges, Screen flip, Keypad

Cons: LG 12.5" IPS SCREEN USED HAS FATAL FLAWS: UNFIXABLE GHOSTING. Screen retains images for tens of minutes after if they stay more than one minute on screen

Other Thoughts: Thinkpad Yoga series is compromised by LG 12.5" screen used which is badly engineered with huge ghosting issue. Worst than a 250$ laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsGood laptop

Pros: I purchased this Ultrabook to replace my ageing 2007 Macbook Pro. I am a medical student and will primarily be using this machine in lecture and at home for surfing the web and viewing PDFs, documents, and presentations. I will also use it for movies and possibly lightweight games.

My first impressions are generally positive.

Software: Although I prefer Mac OS, Windows 8 is turning out to be much better than I had expected. The touch screen is useful for dragging and dropping items and for scrolling down web pages or documents. With Windows 8 and SSD this machine starts up in a matter of seconds which is really amazing.

Hardware: This machine feels solid. The hinges do not feel flimsy. It also feels really light. The display is bright and vibrant (IPS). Keys feel nice. Track pad feels smooth. Ports are ample for my needs. Specs seems great for the money compared with similar high end laptops such as MBP and Vaio Pro. Applications start quickly and everything seems to be running smoothly. I have not been experiencing the wifi connection problems that another reviewer mentioned.

Cons: Click button: My main complaint is that the physical pressing down of the track pad button does not feel as nice as with my previous 2007 MBP (or my friend's Vaio Pro).
The travel of the button upon depressing is too great for my liking and a click requires a little too much force. Additionally, pressing the button down makes an annoyingly loud noise which is not ideal for lecture. If you are used to using touch-to-click, then this will not be a problem for you. It seems the majority of my friends use this feature and I am alone in preferring manual clicking. Because of the clumsy feel and loud noise of the physical clicker button, I am trying to learn how to rely on the touch-to-click feature.

Resolution: The resolution is very high and text appears small. This can be remedied with a Windows setting that increases zoom to 125% but this feature also causes certain non-Windows applications such as Chrome to appear blurry. Additionally, while 12.5" is a large enough screen, I sometimes find myself wanting more.

Another possible complaint is that the battery does not appear to be easily removable.

Other Thoughts: I was cross shopping this with the first gen X1 Carbon, new 2014 X1 Carbon, Vaio Pro, and MBP 13". I chose the Thinkpad Yoga because the old x1 carbon does not have IPS and the new x1 carbon with the optional IPS display was out of my price range.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice machine

Pros: Vibrant screen
best trackpoints in the biz
touchpad is responsive and smooth (not sure what the other reviewer is talking about)
boots in 7 seconds
smooth operation, no lag
excellent Thinkpad build quality

Cons: weight for size
screen real estate could be more
lack of ports

Other Thoughts: First think to keep in mind is thee yoga series are ultrabooks first and tablets second. That said, this performs very well at both given that caveat. It's not heavy unless you're a 5 year old girl.

It was between the Yoga 2 Pro and the Thinkpad Yoga for me. I chose this because of the much better build quality and because I did NOT want the ridiculous resolution of the Y2P (or the faulty colors, still not fixed after updates).
