"This PC is ultra fast, extremely light and portable, crisp screen which is easy on my eyes, and has excellent multimedia capabilities. The lighted keyboard is a must, the ability to flip and fold this thing is phenomenal.
The problem is the color rendering as most people have stated on the forums. Yellow and reds are off. Yellow is deep bronze/mustard brown. In order to rid yourself of this problem "somewhat" one must put it in high performance mode which lessens the battery. (I have it plugged in right now).
I love love this computer. The forums are indicating that perhaps the color rendering is a firmware issue and not the panel. If this is true, I would love to see Lenovo provide a firmware update. However, if it is the panel - eep - Lenovo can you fix and do a voluntary recall?"
"I really liked this laptop and wanted to keep it but for one big problem. You can't keep the Bluetooth working. I tried every driver out there and even reloaded windows. The other problem is only one USB3 port. I could of lived with that if it wasn't for the Bluetooth."
"Pros: - Excellent mobility features (ability to be tablet, regular PC, stand presentation, etc) - Speed upon start-up is outstanding - Lightweight and thin - Battery life is great
Cons: - The wifi card -- evidently a known feature issue. The card will just stop working, reset itself, disconnect from the wifi you're on, etc. - When you wake up the computer from sleep mode, the wifi will not always reconnect. At points, it will show there are no wifi connections when you just saw 8 listed. - The system gets overloaded and features stop working. For example, I have used this computer only for regular business features (i.e. internet browser, Outlook, Skype, etc) - but, when doing normal functions, something like the mouse pad on the laptop will stop functioning."
"This computer is fantastic, with only a few minor flaws. First the display is fantastic, and the keyboard is great. The different modes, from tablet to laptop, tent, and stand are great. The sound is really good, and it is super fast. I only have 2 gripes:
1. The trackpad is super sensitive but I've figured out how to be a little more careful using it. 2. While the ultra-high resolution is great, not all programs are compatible and the text shows up small.
I can live with those two things, and I would recommend this computer to anyone."
"i should have went with my instincts and returned this product when i got it. I read there were audio issues with the laptop. There definitely was. First the headphone jack wouldn't work then the speakers wouldn't work when there was no headphone jack.
I'm an optimisitic person but I would never purchase a lenovo product in my life ever again. There are other issues also. everyone's heard about the resolution issues no compatibility with google chrome yet. a lot of extra steps to get something you need with the new windows ie to shut down etc"
"Have this Yoga2 Pro in my hands for 5 days now. Love the H/W design and it is powerful. However, the Win 8.1 S/W stops any kind of productivity at all.
To make matters worse, 3rd party applications (like Evernote) have built a different application like "Evernote Touch", which takes all the true functionality out of editing. But to load on the Evernote for PC version- that is a disaster! It is not formatted for this high of resolution.
So I am caught now with the fact- the Hardware is excellent, but the O/S takes away productivity. Return the machine and stay with my 4 year old Win. 7 laptop?
Stay away from touch functionality within 8.1 because Microsoft and the 3rd party apps haven't figured out how to integrate TOUCH with the Mouse/Keyboard environment yet?"
"This is an awesome laptop. As a college student in CS major, I use it like 10+ hours everyday and I like it in every way. Also a very good price for its performance.
However, I found a couple of flaws while using it. 1. Keyboard and the mouse pad seem to work as a single thread. -> Mouse pad doesn't work while typing. 2. The resolution is too high, it's inconvenient to work with an extended monitor. Also, the sound system doesn't work when connected to HDMI."
"i have had this laptop for around 4 weeks, it works prefectly for class and its extremely portable. though you dont really use often the tablet mode unless you are doing a presentation. ITs more of a show off feature. i have been getting the blue screen of death around 15 times when having LOL and another program ( spotify) open at the same time, this may only be in my model due to a factory flaw, i think its a great laptop though for 1000 dollars there are better alternatives."
"I have been an avid user of HP computers - top of the line. When my HP's hard drive crashed I did tons of research on the latest models out there. I wanted portability, functionality, power, and most importantly - reliability. The Yoga 2 delivers on all, and more. I recommend this computer to everyone. BEST convertible out there in my opinion. I have nothing negative to say other than I wish tablet mode covered the keyboard - but since it's disabled in tablet mode and the keys are recessed, I've gotten over it. 100% LOVE!"
"Nice form factor, beautiful screen, and lightweight.
Brightness continually fluctuated from dim to bright while on battery. Several hours with tech support resulted in return and exchange.
Replacement Yoga 2 will not connect up to Wi-Fi reliably. Sometimes it just won't connect, then it might say "limited" connection for a while when sitting next to the router, then eventually it requires pushing "fix connection problems" and hope for the best. I just want it to work without having to do all that. Frustrated."
Cons: Display resolution, display scaling could be a deal-breaker
"HATE the resolution issue. Can't believe I overlooked such a major issue when looking at this at the local Big Box store. I could have sworn I could pinch/zoom to re-size fonts, but nope, with the new hi-rez screens, you're stuck with unreadable type. Tech person said Lenovo is working on it, but geez, these have been out for months now. This is significant enough to be a deal-breaker for me, so I hope someone at Lenovo is taking the issue seriously.
Only other complaint is the Micro HDMI port and lack of additional USB 3.0's. Other, smaller machines have full HDMI ports, not sure why they skimped there.
If Lenovo can get their act together on the scaling issue, I'll come back and give it 5 stars all around. Ive had this thing for 5 days and love it but-for the resolution issue."
"At first I was excited about my Yoga 2 but after a month of use.... PROBLEMS 1. Major issue encountered after using the laptop for a little over 1 month where NO DISPLAY is seen on the screen. Forcing reboot does not help. Search for Yoga 2 blackscreen and you will see that I am not the one with this issue. 2. Although the keys do not have far to travel, two of them are already coming askew. 3. The network connection is wireless and drops often 4. The mouse buttons at the base of the trackmouse sometimes seem wrong 5. Glare, a little sluggish, batterynot easily removed
PROS Looks nice Lightweight Screen seems large Touchscreen seems pretty accurate good battery life nice display color and brightness (to me)"
Cons: send us a fix for the yellow when you can...
"The Yoga 2 Pro is just nuts. It's blazingly fast, the screen is to die for, and the Wi-Fi is just fine. Video reproduction and colors are superb (well, ok, the yellow... not so much, but I can live with it until we get a >real< fix).
We've been using this laptop (I bought two: one for us and one for our son to use in college) for about 2 weeks now and we couldn't be happier. It's a bit expensive as laptops go, but really not so bad. If you are going to keep a laptop for 3-4-5 years, the difference between $600 and $1000 is meaningless ($400 is not so much...).
And finally, it's Lenovo. I have had only great luck with these, from a T41 back in the late 90's to an X201 at the office, and the Yoga 2 is leaps and bounds better -faster - brighter - and more fun."
Cons: Input/Output compatibility, Included Software
"I purchased this after owning a Sony Vaio Pro 13 and absolutely love it. About the same price as the Vaio pro and much, much better. Well built, hinge is not at all flimsy, screen is better than my iPad Retina. Quick and easy to use. Love it! I would definitely recommend to a friend.
I use this laptop primarily for work and video watching. Have not attempted gaming on it. Hybrid capabilities have caused me to stop using my iPad Retina.
Only con is the mini HDMI out. I would have appreciated an adapter being included in the purchase. Otherwise, an excellent laptop."
Cons: Software compatibility, software scaling problems, bloatware, buttons not separate from trackpad
"I needed a laptop for college and I chose this specific laptop for 5 reasons: It's innovative design, portability, long reported battery life, decent price with SSD, and high screen resolution.
The battery life, combined with the portability and small size really makes it easy to bring anywhere. I have overcome my aversion to restarting my computer since it boots up so quickly.
However, there are a few annoyances. The worst is when software I use is not designed for such high resolution displays. Other annoyances include the occasional glitches that result from having a trackpad combined with the buttons and all of the bloatware that comes pre-installed.
Overall, the Lenovo Yoga 2 is an excellent, portable laptop with an innovative design and a decent price."
"Yoga 2 pro is an awesome laptop. Wish if the home key was not located where it is, because I keep hitting that instead of the backspace key. One issue after a month of use was a creaky hinge on laptop. Doesn't affect integrity. Underpart of the computer near the hinge wiggles, but will not fall off. Wish power button was located inside lid of the computer, b/c I keep hitting it. Microcrack next to a screw on, not worth $200 restocking fee. Inconsistencies in display brightness on bottom of screen when displaying dark colors. Touchpad irritating when in tablet mode."
"Product:i5/8gig/256ssd Cloned HD then wiped it and installed Linux Mint KDE 64.
Pros: High screen resolution, SSD, Ultrabook, Backlit keyboard, Tablet and hinge capabilities, Bluetooth.
Cons: There is a yellowish light bleed that comes in from the bottom and sides of the screen. It's not a uniform bleed, kinda like tea is pouring onto the screen from the sides, maybe an inch or two at most onto the display. This is the second Y2P I've had and both models exhibited this defect. It's not noticeable unless you are looking at dark or black content. If you plan to watch letter-boxed movies or detailed visual work this might ruin your experience. This is my biggest issue with the Y2P."
Pros: Weight, Processor, Memory, Storage, Display resolution, Display performance, usb 3.0 dock performance, flexibility
Cons: Input/Output compatibility, Battery
"Light, powerful, flexible, and replaces multiple devices (laptop, desktop w/light tablet usage). Power Supply also small and light. Video: Great display! 4K video on QHD stunning! Touch excellent. Drives 2 HD+ monitors through USB3. Flexible: Works well as a large tablet for browsing or reading while seated. Battery: Some trade-off with a 3200x1800 touchscreen. Good for several meetings while taking notes - or just reading as a tablet. If you keep brightness reasonable - it will surprise you! I/O: Micro HDMI port - easy to adapt to HD, but the adapter for micro-HDMI to VGA is bulky, hard-to-find, and relatively expensive. Displayport adapters are much more available."
