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!
- 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. It looks to me like they wanted it to look like there is one there.
- A bad thing is that the machine turned off on me today. Very sudden. I'm thinking it was a Windows thing or driver conflict of some sort. It did turn right back on. I also experienced a shutdown with a message about an IRQ conflict with the Synaptics driver. Windows managed an orderly shutdown and restart on that one. I expect that will become a known issue and get fixed with an update.
- The machine rarely even gets warm.
- The keyboard really is great. Best chicklet KB I've ever used.
- In laptop mode or depending on how you hold the tablet, the sound buttons might opposite of what is intuitive to most people. Not a big deal. The sound through the speakers is not really loud but I think the sound quality is good.
- The recessing keyboard works very well in tablet mode. It feels solid, like there is no danger of damaging anything on the other side. The only thing still "moveable" around there is the touchpad, which is still depressable.
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%.
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. It's a work around but still a compromise in my estimation because it gets a bit confusing and a handful when doing some function/F-key combinations.
A little bit of oversaturation on the screen: Though I like that this is the perfect resolution for this screen size, at times I notice faces can display a bit too much saturation, especially as compared to other laptop screens I've used recently. It also has a warmer look to the whites, which makes it easier on the eyes for text, but probably adds to the overly warm/saturation effect. Not a deal breaker, but noticeable to those that care about such stuff.
UPDATE(12/27): As one person that commented on this below had mentioned, you can download the Intel graphics software and tweak the gamma and contrast to probably help this out a bit (Unfortunately I never tied it myself before returning the laptop).
Overall, one of the nicer laptops I've tried in the last 6 months, and I think I've tried almost every highly rated Ultrabook to date. However, my biggest concern is the battery life being very pedestrian, along with the added weight. Both of these things have me wondering if I will bother to keep this or not. Ultrabooks or lightweight laptops are made for the traveler and these 2 cons are not conducive to a great traveling companion.
UPDATE (12/27): Because of the added half pound of weight, along with a few other niggles that bothered me, I decided to return the laptop, but I still consider it to be a good deal and a strong overall Ultrabook.
If the Yoga 2 Pro had not had the over the top resolution and the yellow problem it continues to have after their supposed "fix", I would have gone with that since it has better battery life and is lighter to carry. But there just hasn't been a product yet that Lenovo has knocked out of the park for the most important things I'm looking for - wifi strength, weight, battery life, screen clarity, and sane HD screen resolution.
