A very disappointing model that does not live up to its hype.

There is an extremely unacceptable amount of flex on the whole left side of the keyboard, from the mouse pad upwards. The right side flexes too but not as much. Very soft and flimsy. The mouse pad itself presents many issues. I can see how Lenovo were trying to emulate the Macbook Air 11.6" here, but failed dismally. Whenever the machine is restarted, the multi-gestures must be reconfigured. For some reason the settings are not locked into place. Fingers do not easily glide across the track pad and sometimes the cursor will behave erratically. I recommend turning off the automatic light sensor, because if you don't you'll be looking at a very dull and dim screen which constantly adjusts itself to match the environmental lighting. Battery life is claimed to be around 5 hours. They've wildly exaggerated here. The machine runs very warm on the underside and heats up within moments of turning it on. The screen is so reflective that it can double as a mirror, particularly during daylight hours.

At night, the screen functions beautifully. It is crisp, clear and bright. The speakers are of a good quality despite having them on the underside of the machine. Processor speed is good. The various stand modes are useful, except tablet mode. I like tent mode because the laptop takes us less space and can be squeezed into a tight spot easily although in this mode the sound is not allowed to be projected out. Stand mode is great for movies and fully exposes the speakers which allows them to function at their best. This laptop does not work well as a tablet. It is large, heavy and cumbersome to hold. If it's resting on your lap or knees, it's easier to use but you won't find yourself holding it with one hand for very long. The track pad also prevents you from comfortably holding it in this mode. Also, sometimes when returning to laptop mode from tablet mode, the whole laptop freezes and must be restarted again. This occurs at random times even if I only use it in laptop mode. The final point is that the Yoga 2 is a lovely-looking and attractive machine, but the negative points far outweigh the positive. This could have been an excellent computer. Lenovo have let themselves, and me, down. I do not recommend this product.

That being said,

Nice solid laptop that doubles as a tablet once the screen is swung over. Reasonably processor speed and good coloured touch screen. Touch pad is not quite as accurate as I would like. Good sized hard drive.

It's a good little machine. Battery life is a little low, but that can be tweaked by trimming the OS Fat. I was not sure about the Quad core processor, but it seems to do the job. It gets bogged down a little from time to time, so I would not tax it with heavy workloads.

This computer was bought for myself as a commuting student. I find that it is light enough to carry on a 1 1/2 journey to and from university and powerful enough for all my needs, I have had it for nearly a year and have not had any problems with it at all. I would definitely recommend it to other students.

second day of ownership. So light, amazing difference between my existing Acer 15.6" screen laptop.
Screen very clear, even the tiniest print.
Turns on in SECONDs, think its faster than our Ipad !
Updated to 8.1 yesterday.

whether windows10 or the Yoga 2 but it regularly freezes and needs a reboot. Otherwise nice little machine at a good price. Flexibility to use as a tablet or laptop useful. Keyboard is light, but works fine. Speakers are reasonable. Is very limited in status indicators, so no indication about state of machine when booting or on/off - only a small light on the side out of sight. Overall, would buy again at this price and recommend.
