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 laptopsREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC
Pros: Nothing I would say that stands out, lot's of little things. The ability to install apps in Office (like everything these days). The linking of the various parts of office continues and I like it. OneNote is outstanding and anybody who wants a flexible database should look at OneNote. I use it heavily and have turned on many clients to it. Microsoft has made the app version free for a long time for all platforms, that should tell you something. And if you network through SharePoint you don't ever have to worry about storing it on another companies server and crossing your fingers they don't get broken into (Evernote, Snapchat, Adobe, Facebook, I could go on).
Cons: The new default theme. White, Light Grey, Dark Grey. Suuuuccckkksssss! Not sure what crack addict at Microsoft thought it looked good
Other Thoughts: I have never seen such a bunch of garbage from these reviews. Get off of the Microsoft hating bandwagon. Either people have know idea how to install software or they're lying shill for some other company. This is not a subscription, you own it. Office 365 is the subscription. You create a Microsoft account. Big whoop. Like Apple makes you create an Apple ID. And Google requires you to create a Gmail account for Android. Please, give me a break. I have installed this hundreds of times for clients. The paid and subscriptions and never had a single issue.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Performance with Raid 10 is amazing, firmware and drivers install no issues, have used with SBS 2008, SBS 2011, Server Standard 2012, have used with ASUS Server and Desktop Motherboards, not a single hiccup, one of the first reviews had issues with an earlier firmware, not here and I have used about 15 of these cards in the past year and half, price/performance makes it a perfect raid card for a Server in a Small Business or Medical Clinic.
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: I run a computer business and first couple of servers I used onboard Raid. Switched to this card and haven't looked backREAD FULL REVIEW
