The Yoga 2 is ultra thin, ultra light but still feels very like a very sturdy and solid unit. The new generation of i7 chip means that its power consumption is low (I can generally work for an entire day on a charge) and it remains quite cool after prolonged use.
The best thing about the Yoga 2 though in my opinion is the screen, which is crisp, clear and runs at a really high resolution of 3200 x 1800 - it is all I hoped that it would be.
Works very nicely with a Anker USB 3.0 docking station, for those that wish to connect to a LAN, external displays and additional USB devices.
Downsides - the amount of bloatware - as a business user I hate all of the additional software and its taken a while to uninstall it - but it is a consumer device so can't really complain. Also seem to have issues with the WiFi on occasion but imagine its a driver issue that will be fixed rather than hardware.
The Lenovo Yoga 2 is just amazing:
Its light and very pretty
The screen and keyboard are beautiful and perfect to use as a proper computer
Its soooooo quick! Boots in seconds and makes light of even resource hungry cad software
Good speakers (much louder than the surface pro)
There's nothing that I don't like about this computer.
Even windows 8.1 once you get it set up to work like windows 7 (get rid of skydrive, put libraries back in windows explorer - easy by adjusting the registry in regedit.exe) is actually great. Everyone always complains about a new operating system but I've actually found that the Windows 8 main screen with all the apps is useful even in desktop mode; I keep all the desktop programs on there rather than having them on the bottom bar and switch between them easily.
I've installed VMWare to run windows 7 32 bit as a virtual machine for running some of my programs that don't run on 64 bit and they even run perfectly and quickly on that.
There is a little bit of the usual bloatware but it's all easily uninstalled without affecting the machine.
As other reviewers have said it doesn't get hot under strain and fits beautifully on my lap as I'm typing now.
One minor issue is the scaling of some programs (the text can get a bit small!) but I'm finding ways to work around it and that's more to do with the software not being able to cope with the ridiculously high res screen.Read more ›
VERY fast; the person who had performance issues must work in the supercomputing industry. Mine boots in well under 10 seconds. I am running a web server, SQL server and Visual Studio launches in an instant. There are NO performance issues.
Amazing screen; a bit too amazing for some apps as menus can end up a bit small. But it is a worthwhile trade off as the resolution really helps when attempting detailed work like fine tuning layouts.
Keyboard & trackpad; about as good as it gets on an ultrabook. Sure, a full sized keyboard and mouse would be better, but that's just not an option. However, you can plug them in if you want.
Windows 8.1; Well, you know what you are getting before you buy this, so don't complain about it. And I must say after a couple of months I kinda like it. But I wouldn't want it on my desktop PC, too many features have me using the touch screen, as do most of the apps from the store.
The ability to fold the screen over, although a bit gimmicky has actually come in useful once or twice.
Build quality is good; I have been toting this round daily for two months and it looks all but new. I love the texture of the palm rest and external surfaces. Reassuringly easy to hold. The slightly rubbery edge is great at absorbing little bumps too.
I waited a long time to get an ultrabook with 256gb SSD, i7 Haswell and 8gb ram.
This does not disappoint in any way shape or form. Although I was scared it would as it is soo much cheaper than the competition.
The only minor niggle is that the competition seem to be able to get their batteries to last longer. Although to be fair I have not tried hard to get them to last longer as they easily last a working day.
All in all I would recommend this to anyone.
I got this about a month ago now and I have had a chance to get used to it. Overall it is a great little machine in that it is portable while still feeling nice and solid. The keyboard is really good. I love the touch screen. After initially cursing Windows 8, I am actually starting to like it. Battery life is decent. The problem of small icons/screen resolution was resolved fairly easily. I use the different yoga positions more than expected. In short, I really like it – except for one major issue…
The wifi connection drops all the time, on average maybe 20-30 times a day! More often than not it reconnects on its own, but not until after conversations are dropped and downloads have stalled. A few times a day I need to reconnect manually. It is incredibly annoying!
We have several other gadgets, and don’t have any problems with those. It is definitely a problem specific to this machine. I have searched the discussion forums and it does not look like it can easily be solved, at least not without a lot more computer knowledge than I have. There is one recurrent ‘chorus’ in the forums – that Lenovo does not acknowledge the problem and they are not forthcoming about any solutions. So, no help from them on the immediate horizon.
When, or perhaps if, Lenovo solves this problem it will be a 5 star for me. In the meantime, I grit my teeth and prey for patience.
Lenovo, please get your act together!
