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......
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.
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
