Pros: Fairly innovative and unique design
Comfortable shape and good weight.
Very easy to set up.
Cons: Difficult to click.
Touch strip is somewhat finicky.
Other Thoughts: I was initially excited about this mouse, but that excitement faded extremely quickly after attempting to use it. This was due primarily to the mouse's abysmal clicking action.
I have found that I need to press quite forcefully on a front end of the mouse to register a click; unfortunately, it is possible for the mouse button to click without the click registering, and I found that this occurred about 50% of the time.
Due solely to this issue, I would not recommend this mouse.
Pros: Good screen resolution
Thin and light
Durable body with a quality field
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.
