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.READ FULL REVIEW
