    ThinkPad YogaFeatures

    Four Awesome Modes. One Incredible Device.

    Easily change between four modes - Laptop, Stand, Tablet, and Tent - while your system automatically switches system settings and locks the keyboard in place. The secret: Lenovo YOGA's convertible Ultrabook design and touchscreen display allows the screen to flip around 360 degrees, which means you can select the mode you use based on what you choose to do.

    Ultraportable for Easy Mobility

    Starting at a mere 1.58kg (3.5 lbs) and just 19mm (0.75") thick, Thinkpad YOGA is ultraportable — it's perfect for doers on the go.

    Industry-Leading Multimode Keyboard

    Pioneering ultrabooks need pioneering keyboards — and the ThinkPad Yoga's innovative lift-and-lock keyboard fits the bill. When your Yoga switches between modes, the keyboard frame automatically rises and the keys lock, eliminating accidental keystrokes and providing a more comfortable grip.

    Massive Storage Options

    With up to 1TB in HDD storage/256GB SSD storage, the ThinkPad Yoga has plenty of space for all of your important files, videos, photos, and presentations. And the Lenovo Performance Booster enhances performance by up to five times.

    Rock-Solid Durability

    The ThinkPad Yoga's durable magnesium-alloy frame and heavy-duty, scratch- and smudge-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass display means it can handle tough treatment from even the hardiest road warrior.

    Digitizer Pen Support

    Choose a model with an optional digitizer pen to maximize productivity on your ThinkPad Yoga. In all four modes, the digitizer pen provides a natural, fluid, writing experience and lets you take notes, sign documents, annotate PDFs, and more.

    Long Battery Life

    The ThinkPad YOGA lets you stay productive over the long haul. With **up to 8 hours of battery life — and a 30-day standby — you can go all day without recharging.

    10-Point Multitouch Display

    Interact with your YOGA convertible by using simple, intuitive gestures directly on the Ultrabook's 12.5" HD or FHD 10-point multitouch display - optimised for Windows 8. Its advanced multitouch technology provides a superior touch experience, greater responsiveness, and faster response times.

    Instant Resume

    Stay productive by picking up where you left off in an instant. The ThinkPad Yoga wakes from sleep mode in less than 2 seconds and from hibernation in less than 7 seconds.

    Robust Hard-Drive Protection

    Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your data is protected. The ThinkPad Yoga's Active Protection System locks and protects your HDD when it detects sudden movements — it's like having an airbag for your hard drive.

    The service / repair when I encountered a small issue has been a nightmare. I have been asked to pay more than 1/3 of the original price and no real reason has been given.

    versatile laptop/tablet choice . Solid
    Microsoft office was not pre- installed and was supplied as a CD-Rom for a computer with no disc drive!

    The warranty required validation which was tedious as all the information had already been supplied at the time of ordering.

    Strong. Silent. Touch screen
    Track pad not as optimal as it could be in my opinion.

    GB Classwork, casual gaming, working
    Ideal for taking notes in class
    The flexibility makes it multipurpose
    Comes with a screen protector already applied
    Bad for watching videos as the default screen resolution makes the UI too small.
    smudges often, and can get scratched if you aren't careful with the pen
    Slightly expensive depending on the specs
    Can get hot if you run an intensive program, or leave it running too long.

    No issues so far!

    ThinkPad YogaAsk an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the Yoga

    1. Bob asked on
      Hello, thinking about getting the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga , from time to time I would like to log onto world of warcraft , would this machine be able to cope ? many thanks....
      ps. I'm looking at i7-4500 3.00 ghz, 8gb sdram the rest appears to be the same as next model.
      1. Ismail replied on
        the Yoga comes with an intel HD Graphics which is great for display purposes, however I would not recommend it for gaming. if your gaming casually and aren't concerned with top graphics then it will be fine. Bottom line is it will work but not at its best. Processor and memory wise it is plenty for the game.
    2. Vineet asked on
      I have read in various forums that this Think pad Yoga is suffering from ghosting (footprint of the windows or application which were closed after being used for a while) issues. could you please let me know if you have this issue and how it is being resolved?
      1. John replied on
        if you mean screen ghosting , I have seen this.
    3. A shopper asked on
      Is the screen good at showing 1080p videos? what is the pad like, is it hard to drag and is it in the centre of the laptop at the front ? many thanks
      1. Tony replied on
        I have watch films in full HD quality seamless.

        Touch pad is fine however intergrated left/right click are tricky to get to grips with. If you want to drap use the touch screen its easier.

    4. Martin asked on
      I have a ThinkPad Yoga. I have the official Lenovo mini-HDMI-to-VGA adapter cable. When I connect a monitor, it is not recognised. My drivers are all up to date.

      Has anyone successfully connected to a monitor using the mini-HDMI port? If so, what is the secret of success.
      1. Sam replied on
        I'm afraid I haven't used the miniHDMI-to-VGA adapter cable. However, I've used a miniHDMI-to-HDMI cable, as well as a miniHDMI-to-HDMI adapter on a standard HDMI cable, and they both work well.
    5. A shopper asked on
      Can you use tablet pen's on a Thinkpad Yoga laptop that does NOT come with a pen? And if so, what pen's do you use?
      1. Attilio replied on
        My thinkpad Yoga came with a pen, or as they call it, an active digitizer which works in conjuntcion. So I am not 100% sure if you can use a pen or other writing device on a Thinkpad Yoga that does not come with a pen. I think you can, although I have read that the pen will be less accurate. If you are an artist, you may want the active digitiser, otherwise I guess you'll be fine with the one without. BTW I am not an artist, but since I was going to spend a lot of money on a computer I said to myself, what the heck, I will have as many accessories as I can.
      2. Ruairi replied on
        It really depends on whether your Thinkpad Yoga has a digitizer or not. If it didn't come with a pen, then it sounds like you don't have the digitizer. Look up your Yoga's product number online and see if it supports pen technology.
