"My wife and I both got the device recently. It was a great deal at 299.99. I'd say it was a steal. If you don't know, RT does not run full windows software, which is a limitation. The App store is decent, but is missing some things. That aside, the device is great. Snappy, great battery life, great internet browser. No complaints really except that I wish it were a bit lighter. This is a great compromise between a tablet and a laptop in my opinion. Won't do everything, but it does quite a lot."
"I just had to get this computer when I saw it on sale for $299!!! Works great except that the WiFi antenna is sub-par, that why 4-stars instead of 5.
I actually like Windows RT, because I'm using this as a tablet/portable and don't have expectations to run full-blown executable software. The Yoga came with Microsoft Office 2013 (Home & Student). And the computer has Bluetooth - Nice. It has SD card for additional storage. Despite some criticism about the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, for this tablet the performance is acceptable (good). Looks like Levono is phasing out the Windows RT 11" Yoga models in favor of the full Windows 8. So if you can grab one of these for $299 or even $399, as your portable productivity computer (with MS Office), you can get a lot done with this convertible tablet."
"It will be used mainly for emails, Internet and some light work in Office. In order to get access to our company, we will use terminal services which we do on Windows 7 too. Yoga 11 won over Sony Vaio 11 Pro because it was a rational choice: (i) 2.5 to 3 times cheaper; (ii) only slightly higher weight compensated by much better battery stamina; (iii) comparable high quality build and (iii) the table mode. We have been using it for several hours now and we are absolutely amazed. Windows RT automatically syncs settings with my other computers. The only weakness is small capacity (15 GB free) but you can use SD card. I don't need to sync my entire Skydrive for this particular device. Also the processor is not very fast, but do you know that there is no active cooling? Great!"
"I've been using this device for over half a year, mostly for graduate school work and personal use. The device itself is beautiful. and it feels very well built. It runs completely silent. I usually get around 11-12 hours of batter life. The keyboard is excellent. The Tegra 3 processor is a little slow with heavy websites and launching some apps.
Features for students: -Comes with Microsoft Office applications! -Great keyboard that is comfortable to type on for extended times -Can access Blackboard and other school system portals without any problems. -Integration with Skydrive. I can start a paper on my desktop and pick up where I left off on my Yoga, or vice versa. No longer need flash drives."
"I did my research and in the end decided to buy the Lenovo Yoga 11 because of its portability and awesome battery life. The design is very sleek and the keyboard is amazing to type on! When I first flipped it around I knew that this was the best decision ever! The thing I was most worried about would be Windows RT, but I don't mind it at all! All in all, this laptop would be great for taking to school or being on the go with it! Its super light, super thin, I wouldn't want anything else!"
"The Yoga 11 is a very mobile and light device, with a neat convertible design. The tablet mode is quite useful. The keyboard is really good, as well as the trackpad. The screen is pretty nice too, not sure if a higher resolution would give that much advantage. Touch controls work very well, no complaints there. Performance is quite fast, especially after updating everything, and battery does last 10-13 hours. It also charges in 1-2 hours. Build quality is simply top notch. Overall, Yoga 11 is a great buy, I think, at least for the current sale price, especially if one needs a laptop/tablet with long battery life and has no need other software than what is provided for Windows RT."
"It feels really clunky. Very slow. Freezes up. Curser freezes and I have to reboot. Often cant log on to password protected sites like Pandora. It caches a lot so music/videos/stream is fragmented. Constantly waiting for pages to load so it feels like a oversized phone. I am returning this."
"I really enjoy this little laptop. I've had it for a couple of weeks. Really fast I think that the 11 is the perfect size. Would recommend getting the sleeve makes it more comfortable when using in tablet mode."
Pros: Battery, Processor, Included software, Build Quality
Cons: Weight, Software compatibility
"The 11" form factor is perfect for me, but was hesitant about r/t. Free full version of Office is really great. unbelievable battery life, which is probably due to the tegra processor. Speaking of the tegra, it does not miss a beat... very fast! It plays video smooth, and the screen is pretty good. If I had to say something bad, it would be that I don't like the keys being exposed in tablet mode. Seems like a detachable flip cover like the Samsung GS3 could have been engineered to cover them. I just heard about the full windows 8/core i3 version coming out next month. If it can maintain decent battery life... it might be the answer to all of my prayers! Until then, the current yoga 11 is a real player!"
Cons: Memory, Bluetooth, Processor, Storage, Video card, Display resolution, Battery, Included Software, Software compatibility, Display performance, operating system
"I think this device would be good,,if: 1. Replace Tegra 3 to x86 or x64 Proc 2. Using Window 8/Pro instead a RT
i know,, there's his brother,, Yoga 13.. but,, think about it: 'would you be comfortable using a 13 inch tablet in your hand?' that's kinda bulky right?? i think 11 inch tablet mode is good,,not perfect though.. but not too small when use a laptop an other mode..
are kidding me?? who is wanted a tablet (windows RT JUST for tablet right?) that as thick as 15.6 cm,, when in the market dozens under 8 cm or around 1 cm with keyboard?? RT is not functionally Windows,,IMHO.. so,, throwing yoga 11 with RT is kind Useless!!
yoga 11 + RT = absolutely NO yoga 13 + 8/Pro= NO yoga 11 + 8/Pro = Definitely YES"
