First, a warning to those who have bought or are considering buying a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga: there is a known problem with the LG 12.5 FHD displays that Lenovo uses for these which causes the screens to start retaining images (similar to burn-in like CRTs used to suffer) anywhere from a few days to a couple of months after first use. If you haven't bought one yet, DO NOT until Lenovo has admitted the problem and addressed it. It appears to be common to ALL of the displays, with some suffering more than others. If you have already bought one, return it if you are within your return window. If not, contact Lenovo with the issue, post on their forums [...] and don't relent until the issue has been addressed and resolved. These same displays were used by Dell in the XPS 12 model, and the same exact problem occurred. Dell initially denied it (as is Lenovo, saying it's within operating parameters), but they eventually capitulated and are now replacing all of the screens in the near future with a supposed LG revision. Some peoples monitors are being replaced now (by both Dell and Lenovo), but the new monitors are still showing problems with image retention.

This is a huge problem that fundamentally flaws the display. To read more about it, check out the Lenovo forum thread about it here [...] or on the Notepad Review forum post here [...] . All specs of the Thinkpad Yoga appear to be effected. Either of those threads will also inform you how to check for ghosting on your display if you haven't already noticed it.

My unit is almost brand new (got it less than a week ago), and already the Start button is being retained almost immediately after starting the computer. It hasn't gotten worse yet to affecting the center of the screen, but it's only a matter of time.

Here is my review after a few days.

The best things about this convertible laptop are the keyboard and display (looks awesome). The unit feels light and solidly built. It also has a good selection of ports, the sound is pretty good, and I like the ability to use it as a traditional laptop, prop it up like a tent, or fold it into a tablet. When used as a tablet, it's heavier than a tablet-only device but that is to be expected (I still wouldn't say it's heavy).

The touchpad feels a little flimsy to me sometimes, like when I tap it I sometimes hear a little rattle. It's the "Apple" kind of "clickable" touchpad. I'd rather have the solid one that doesn't actually depress.

Also, a big thing for me is that this ThinkPad Yoga DOES NOT have a digitizer. I cannot ding the laptop for this, but beware. Everything I have read about the differences between ThinkPad Yoga and the IdeaPad version (Yoga Pro 2) stress that the main difference is the digitizer. I specifically ordered the ThinkPad version for just that reason, but this machine does not have one.

Finally, and this has nothing to do with the hardware but I mention it because this is such an integrated experience, if you are coming from Windows 7 be aware that Windows 8 takes some getting used to!

UPDATE:

- The touchpad isn't as bad as I first thought. Also, I give Lenovo credit for using Synaptics (and not Alps or Elan). Sometimes I sense some precision issues but it's not too bad.

- Regarding the digitizer, I did look in Device Manager (no hardware listed) and also PC Info (not mentioned there either). The odd thing is that it _looks_ like there is a stylus in the spot where you'd expect it, but it's just a cutout in the plastic.

This is my first experience with the Thinkpad line of Lenovo products and it is nicely made, but with a few somewhat troubling caveats. It's a bit more of a solid build than the Ideapad Yoga 2 Pro and has a much more sane screen resolution at 1920x1080 for this 12'5" screen. Much easier to deal with software that runs on the desktop with this resolution over the Yoga 2 Pro.

Pros:
Perfect resolution for the screen size.
Nice sized touchpad.
Great backlit keyboard, except for the Function key placement.
Strong wifi range, which I have unfortunately found to be a rarity in most of the popular Ultrabooks lately.
Charges fast. About a little over an hour to go from 6% to 100%.

Cons:
Battery life is not very good. In the first week of usage I have been getting closer to 4-5 hours than the 8 claimed. It goes down quite quickly with just a little bit of browsing.

UPDATE (12/27): I ended up getting around 6 hours of battery life after about 10 days of usage, so not quite as bad as originally thought, but certainly not anything to write home about.

The wifi on this model with the i5 and 4 gig of ram is single channel. The dual channel wifi adapter is available on the i7 model, according to what one reviewer mentioned.

A bit heavy for an Ultrabook. This should be about a half pound lighter to be in line with 13" ultrabooks of the day.

Function key is all the way to the left of the keyboard where you normally expect to have the Control key. Has me hitting Function+C, instead of Control+C, etc more often than I would like.

UPDATE (12/27): You can swap the Function key for the Control key in the bios.
