    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: ThinkPad YOGA's unique 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 ThinkPad YOGA by using simple, intuitive gestures directly on the 12.5" HD or FHD 10-point multitouch display - optimized 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.

    Love the feel of the laptop in tablet mode and the handwriting capabilities are first class. I think the weight is good and the keyboard response is nice to the touch. Overall a very good laptop that has an air of quality.
    Bit annoyed when my mouse kept dissappearing however a quick call and it was sorted. Some people mighten like the weight

    Great size and weight, lovely graphics and wonderful battery life. Very adaptable machine.
    Hard to use gesture controls. Too sensitive some times. Sometimes swipe buttons just disappear. Very sensitive to being moved while a program is running, music is playing or a video. Even a small shift in position causes the video to stall and lag. Difficult to close background programs, which also causes crashes. Left click on pad can be unresponsive.

    Boots up like lightning, nice and portable but the screen is still big enough to do real work (software dev and the usual PM stuff) without hurting my eyes.

    The flexibility of use is great, I thought I'd never use it as a tablet (bit gimmicky), but found myself in a meeting reviewing a pdf and doing just that.

    Lovely desktop experience with a USB 3.0 dock for network and screens and Lenovo bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
    Would have liked to be able to configure more than 8GB RAM, in fairness this hasn't been an issue to date - maybe the SSD hard-drive makes this less of an issue.

    Would like it to be a touch lighter, but it probably couldn't be much lighter and still be robust enough.

    Dublin IE College work and general
    Boots up in around 10 seconds.

    Operates really fast.

    Using the digitizer pen for college work works a lot better than I expected it to.

    Screen can go really bright.

    Backlit keyboard is really handy.

    Being able to switch to tablet mode is also really handy.

    Really big touchpad.

    The keyboard is really nice to type on and it retracts in when in tablet mode.

    The usb port with the battery indicator on it charges your phone just as quickly as the charger would.

    The laptop charges in about an hour and a half.

    The laptop is very quiet, you can only hear the hard drive spining but that won't be a problem if you get the ssd and you never hear the fan running and the laptop doesn't get really hot, just warm.
    The touchpad is just awful to use. The left and right click buttons are part of the touchpad so it makes it hard to rest your finger on the left click button while using the touchpad. This leads to tha laptop thinking that you are trying to scroll or zoom or the mouse flying all over the place. Also when trying to click the mouse sometimes moves and you click on the wrong thing.

    The camera is pretty low quality but still decent enough to do video calling.

    The battery life is supposed to be 8 hours but I would only get around 5 maybe 6 or 7 with screen brightness all the way down and in flight mode and thats just using the laptop to take down notes in college but its still enough to get me through the day.

    There is a mini hdmi port instead of a normal one.

    With the high resolution everything on the screen does be tiny and very hard to read. This can be fixed by changing some things in the setting but some programs still stay very small.

    Finally, the ultimate compromise machine. Predominantly a notebook computer with tablet facilities. Not having to detach and reattach a keyboard dock makes this the handiest machine in its class. I couldn't recommend this highly enough.
    No built in GPS.
    A SIM card slot would be nice also.

    lenovo managed - for the most part - keep the exceptional quality ibm achieved. no more true, than for the tp yoga. it is a great machine. excellent performance, rock solid construction, flawless workmanship.
    the trackpoint design is rubbish.
    the virtual buttons provide poor tactile feedback, are far-far away and positioned awkwardly. but the worst of it all are the constant accidental middle clicks. this flaw makes the whole machine useless. i sent it back.
