Top Customer Reviews
*Fluid multi-mode working; can move from regular laptop to stand mode and the others easily
*Good response on the touch-screen
*Good, although not great, comfort on typing; some have had problems with the smaller "Backspace" key on this design, but hasn't been a big problem with me
*Works fine with older made programs, like MicroSoft 2000, PDF-X-Change Viewer, Jarte
*Like how they've replaced the "F1, F2..." keys at the top with more common-day short-cut keys for volume control, taking off the touch-pad mouse, turning off the screen, brightening and dimming the screen, etc.; although can still use "F-" keys with Fn Function key.
*Generally fast, can move between windows fluidly, start up under 20 seconds from off, and under 4 seconds from sleep, although can take a little while to find internet connection once otherwise fully on.
*Backlit Keys: Wasn't clear in advertisement whether had backlit key on non-pro version; it does, with quick Fn-Spacebar to turn it on or off
*Good battery life, over 6 hours when doing high demand stuff, probably up to 9 if low screen light and more soft use.
*Skinny and light-weight at about 3.3 pounds
*USB charging: I like that it can charge devices even while the Yoga is in sleep-mode (and probably otherwise off as well).
*Wifi-card: Mention has been made here already about the wifi card weaknesses; this is true, although seems to only have on-and-off problems at times when unplugged, just using battery; however, you can change through "Advanced power settings" so works the same here as when plugged in, and this seems to solve the problem.Read more ›
--1) The power management is set up to be conservative and these can lead to unexpected delays if you want a snappy system. Luckily Lenovo has a power management app override to easily shift to high performance - if you need to. Note this may also negatively impact your wireless connections if not set up correctly.
--2) The touch pad is very sensitive and will likely leave you with a range of unexpected mouse movements or unintentional clicks. So you may need to tweak these settings... for example I have to disable the normal contextual pad touch selections because the context menu kept popping up (changed it to a direct two finger simultaneous touch). Contextual menus are helpful, but if they get in the way of every basic interaction - the system becomes unusable.
--3) Multi-touch or touch based interactions are not optimized for the Chrome browser - should you be happening to use this browser. So knowing this - I would recommend using IE or Firefox for browsing. FYI the Yoga 2 screen based touch interactions are snappy and a delight to use.
--4) Finally, the biggest problem of all: The darn Intel 2.4 GHz N7260 wireless card. This card and it's intel/microsoft drivers have ticked off everyone who has tried to use them.Read more ›
- There are a TON of different models, so make sure you get one with all the specs you need. For me, it had to be a 13" screen (11" is too small for me), 8 GB of RAM, at least an i5 processor.
- The RAM is not replaceable. So make sure you get the 8 GB version, if you're going to pay this much for a laptop.
- There are two hard drive spots available, with one empty available (depending on model). The type of connection varies based on your model, so don't buy an extra SSD/HHD until you actually buy this thing.
- Do some research on Slickdeals for pricing. A certain brick-and-mortar store had some major league promotions going (-10% off mover's coupon, plus $150 off back to school, plus a sale price) - I ended up getting the Yoga 2 13 i5 w/ 8GB RAM for $600 or so.
- I've read many have had wifi issues and problems getting true yellow colors to display. I have not experienced either issue! Wifi is just as good on this machine as any other device we have. And yellow seems normal to me.
- There is a "pro" version with really high resolution, but consider getting the non-pro Yoga 2 13 (lower res, still pretty high though). There are a ton of forum posts about it on Lenovo's site, but basically it is a challenge for some to get the settings right to make the text readable. I would highly recommend actually playing around with the different models at a brick and mortar store to make sure you would be happy with the text size in various common programs.
I haven't really come across any negatives. The keyboard is perfect - good key size, placement.Read more ›
