Model Number: 20175
"I saw the Yoga13 with an i5 processor in the Intel exhibit at CES in Las Vegas in January. They had about 5 different brands and I liked this best. As soon as the model with the i7 processor came out, i ordered it. The first couple of days I was ready to send it back as I was totally frustrated with Windows 8. After a couple of days, I am impressed with how well it works. The speed is unbelievable. I am almost 90 years old and am finding it an excellent computer to handle.
My on;ly complaint was that Lenevo did not tell me which USB port was the USB3. Some people might find it difficult to determine.
I had to use you customer service and I found it excellent. This was the first time I had called anyone for tech support in several years. Not only was the information fast and correct and understandable, but the tech called me back the next day to be sure everything was OK."

Model Number: Lenovo Ideapad Yoga13 i7 256gigHD 8gigMem
"I purchased the 8/256 version to stop caring an Ipad plus laptop in my briefcase. It's GREAT! It works best as a Laptop and sometimes tablet. Having the keys underneath while in tablet mode doesn't bother me at all. The keys are disabled in tablet mode and I grip it about as hard as I want without any issues. It feels different because the keys move but it's fine. It has the Costco Warranty so I'm not worried about it. It's not cheap so how hard do you want to abuse it anyway?
I use the tablet mode in court to access Outlook calendar etc. It works very fast. I have used it in every possible option for display and you begin to wonder how you lived without all these options because it's so versatile! Tablet for reading, tent for play, L for airplane movie, laptop for computing!
The internet speed is perfectly fine. I have used it internationally, at my home, work, public and haven't had any issues with connectivity. Remember that Apple admitted it had it's phones SHOW 5 bars when it was actually MUCH less. Sometimes the website is slow and not your computer.
Battery life is wonderful! I keep the display at around 80% brightness even while on battery. I'm consistently getting around 6 hours; amazing!
Boot speed with the SSD is stunningly fast. It's under 10 seconds to boot and to reappear after Sleep it really is about a second. My version one IPAD now takes about 25 seconds to load various software and had gotten so slow I decided paying for this machine was cheaper than a new Ipad plus cheap laptop.
I still use Icloud to update all my calendars between my office, Iphone, all PC's. I haven't tried to ditch it yet because I still have Iphone contract with the phone company. I still use dropbox because it works so well and is already installed on all my machines so I haven't given skydrive its chance but I did play with it and it works fine. Dropbox still allows a bit more flexability so i'm keeping it and using skydrive as "extra" cloud storage.
Not Yoga's issue but Microsoft Store: the store still doesn't have some of the software programs that the Ipad had access to. this includes my local newspaper, a quicken program and some other stuff. Not Yoga's issue but it's fair to mention.
Windows 8, some things just need to be learned and when you do it's great and getting better. I had a hard time figuring out to go to windows charm; select search and select store to search the store for specific programs that I wanted to purchase. Things like this are part of the learning curve and once you learn it's obviously fine. Both Windows and Apple are tools not religions and both work hard to do everything so assume Windows can do what you want and learn how. when Apple was new I didn't know how to do it on that machine either.
Touchscreen is very responsive but is slightly prone to smudges. you can't see it because the screen is very crisp but when its off you notice. the screen resolution is HD quality and fantastic. If the screen had more resolution then the text would be to small to read and defeat the purpose. Movies are bright and there aren't jagged edges in fast motion scenes. I've played some video games but nothing requiring massive video graphics. SOUND is good for a laptop and music can be enjoyed. Get headphones if you need really great sound fidelity.
SKYPE: works fantastic and is included with free minutes when you buy windows 365 which I use. the video camera would be better if the fstop was able to be easily controlled so it's not a great camera if the light source isn't in front of you directly lighting the subject.
I am very happy with this purchase and it was STILL 700 cheaper than the Retina Apple!

Liked $899 model so much, I exchanged for this one

Pros: great designlight weight very impressive battery
Cons: just the touchpad issue that i mention i my review
Model Number: Yoga 13 (20175)
"Simple put, I liked the $899 version of this Yoga 13 so much that I took it back and got this one. I love them both but just wanted more. I have no intention of taking this one back.
TIP: If you get either of these 2 models of the Yoga 13 and notice when typing a paragraph that your right hand touches/covers half of the touch pad, don't let that bother you - just go in to Control Panel, the Mouse app, then click the Device Settings tab, and then click the Settings button. Here you can easily adjust the settings/sensitivity of the TouchPad so that you can create a Word document or email without the cursor moving all over the place. Hope this helps!

So far so good

"This is a good laptop with great touchscreen feature. I like the slim design and look.
One concern is that the keyboard takes some time to get use too. The shift key on the right is smaller than most keyboards, so you end up hitting the up arrow accidentally. Also, it doesn't come with windows 8 pro (which means you cannot get windows media center unless you want to shell out $99)
Screen color is vibrant, and battery life is decent. However, in the future, if you need to replace the battery, you must have a certified technician do it or ship it into lenovo, which is kind of a pain if you are a heavy battery user.
Lastly, it only has 2 USBs, so it can get challenging when trying to connect multiple devices.
Aside from the minor complaints listed above, Overall, this is a well-built laptop."

Better than it looks.

Pros: sharp screen little weight fast.
Cons: not too expensive but not cheap either.
Model Number: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga13 Core i7 Touchscreen Ultrabook
"I bought two laptops recently, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 and a Sony Vaio 15.5 inch, I7 processor. They arrived about the same time. Two weeks later, I have yet to use the Sony. The lightness of the Yoga is a big plus, and I like the keyboard. Although a man, I do not have huge, all-thumbs hands, so I write at top speed. The screen on the Yoga is great, which is extremely important to me. What Lenovo did with the screen is use a high resolution screen and offer a easy-to-see typeface. Lenovo offers larger type settings you can use, but if you use the original typeface and size, you can get on the screen about the same material as a 15.5 inch screen. What I do is write in a pre-programmed size for Word and then Microsoft One-Note--with all my notes--along side Word--so that I can see my notes and write in Word at the same time. That is important to me in that I can put hundreds of pages of research in One-Note and look at the pages while writing in Word. The plus is that the Yoga weighs next to nothing, relatively speaking, so I can carry it with me and work at any time."

I'm Loving it!

Pros: fast very nice resolution dolby 4
Cons: bluetooth connectivity learning windows 8
Model Number: Yoga 13 i7
"I am not sure why my bluetooth signal is breaking up once in a while, and pairing is a challenge even as close as a foot away. I have a JBL Fip box, and LG head set which works fine with my other PC and android phones. But other than that I am very happy. I am sure this is windows 8 issues and once updated, improved/debugged, it will be fine."

Awesome Computer

Pros: very versitile, very light, very small, fully functional computer, stand mode
Cons: too heavy to be a pad
"This is the perfect computer for home or college use. Very light weight but very fast. The touch screen is amazing. I already can't stand my top-of-the-line brand new work laptop because I can't use the touch screen. It's a little too heavy for pad mode but stand mode makes pad mode almost unnecessary. I use stand mode when I would normally use a pad; when sitting or lying down. Add in the full Windows 8 and MS Office and there’s no reason for a pad that only gets the Internet but can’t be used as a computer."

horrible WIFI connection, otherwise great

Pros: real laptop experience with tablet benefits, fast, windows 8
Cons: horrible wifi, a little flimsy compared to macbooks, small hard drive (max of 256)
Model Number: 59366350
"There are multiple threads and discussions about how poor the wifi is on the Yoga. I didn't see it until I bought it. I love this machine, but the wifi drops, is very weak, and goes in and out. Even next to my router, my connection will drop. And when I do a head-to-head with another laptop or iPad, it will be 1/10th the speed."

good but no 5ghz internet support

Pros: battery life, gigantic touch screen, light weight
Cons: lack of 802.11a antenna, no ethernet port, windows 8 takes getting used to
Model Number: 59359564
"This laptop is fabulous. I love the touch screen. I love the flexibility of the laptop (easy to cook with internet recipes with a tented laptop) and I especially enjoy the powerful capabilities of what this laptop can do with heavy duty software. My only major complaint is that this laptop does not support 802.11a, which is the 5ghz internet band. I find this strange, being that my under $200 android tablet supports 802.11a and my old laptop does as well. But I haven't had issues with the overall wi-fi reception so it works out. I also want to add how LIGHT this laptop is... for someone who hated the weight of my last laptop, traveling with this baby is a dream."
