    Great laptop/ultrabook. I got this after a real Odyssey searching for a new ultrabook. I owned the Samsung series 9, np900x3c, and my girlfriend has a Macbook Air (MBA), so I can also compare them to the Yoga.At this price, the Yoga is a great product if:- you want a great quality ultrabook (parts are solid and well made and it is not as fragile as the Samsung 9).It is not as light as others but unless you really need an ultraportable (like the Samsung 9) then the Yoga fares well as it weights just 0.3 lbs more than the MBA although it is a little bigger.About the latter, it is sturdier in some sense than both the MBA and Samsung. The MBA actually delivers a good solid feeling (the Series 9 not much so, I felt like you can break it easily, especially the hinges of the screen) but I feel like I could drop the Yoga without having to say goodbye to it. I believe this is in Lenovo spirit, their laptop are renowned to be sturdy and long-lasting.- good quality control (my first the Samsung 9 came with a dead pixel, the second one had a crappy trackpad which selects things at random while you move the cursor and statics from the speakers and audio output!).- a great touchscreen, also in terms of quality of the LCD display (IPS with decent resolution). Notice that touchscreens reduce battery performance. The Samsung 9 has a brighter screen and more battery life, especially compared if you use the screen at the same level of brightness. That was a drawback for the Yoga to me, because I don’t care about the touchscreen. However, overall, considering features and design, quality control, and price (!!) the Yoga wins easily.- a good keyboard. It is not as good as the X1 Carbon, but it definitely beats the MBA (which has a decent keyboard but shallower than the Yoga) and wins hands down the Series 9 (stiff, shallow and noisy).IT IS RELLY A GREAT ULTRABOOK FOR THE PRICE with the competition out there at the moment.You can also upgrade the RAM and SSD easily enough (especially the RAM, it’s trivial).What I would like to see improved in the future, in order of importance, are:- battery life! If you use 80-85% brightness and use it constantly (I mostly browse, type quite a bit — coding for example — and listening to some music) you might even wipe it in just 4 hours. That’s not awesome. The Series 9 would last 1 hour longer. However, the battery is decent, don’t let yourself down because of this. The OS and features drains the battery, the MBA would last 3 hours if it had a touchscreen like this and was running Win 8!- more brightness and bigger screen (the MBA has a slightly bigger screen but worse resolution and quality, that’s for sure).- An even better keyboard, like the X1 Carbon thinkpad (with the nipple please!)- I would prefer a metal case in terms of design. It would make it just awesome.- Back-lit keyboard.NOTE: I don’t use the touchscreen much but the factor forms are really useful. Many times you are in a vehicle, or on the plane, or in a situation where you need to bend the laptop and use it with the screen closer to you, taking up less space and such. It is really useful! I love to use it on the couch and bed as tablet (otherwise a little heavy). Even if you don’t love the touchscreen and would rather have a better battery life and lighter product (like I do), the Yoga still wins to such product like MBA and Samsung 9 because of its features and quality, for that competitive price!

    A decent ultrabook but a medicore tablet Update: I have used this computer for about 1 week and the versatility really exceeded my expectation. I actually like the 13.3 big screen for tablet compared to my asus transformer prime, which is about 10 inches. The keyboard is not that bothering on landscape mode for the tablet. The screen is also very bright. For the fan noise, it is really not noticeable if I do not put my ear to the keyboard. The computer is always below 50 celcus degrees. So I am confident that the computer will not burn,compared to my dell xps m1330,which can lead to 90 celcus degrees easily. So really happy with my purchase and I will keep it as my main computer. I would like to upgrade the hard drive for another 256 gb in short time.—————————————–original review:I have been waiting for a windows 8 laptop since last June when my dell xps M1330 dies of heat. Many windows 8 ultrabook is out since last October. I mainly target for the laptop but occasional tablet (because windows 8 is VERY short of good apps). For a laptop, I do not want the screen to be too small . So I leave out Samsung Smart PC and MS Surface Pro. I also leave out Asus Prime and Samsung Series 9 because they are not able to be served as tablet at all.Thus, the only left option is actually Yoga 13 and Thinkpad Twist. However, the twist is too old styled and do not look cool. Therefore, I finally decided on Yoga 13, which I have researched a lot online. The main cons are not-so-good tablet because you grab to keyboards and the fan noise. The fan noise could be just bios stetting but also could resulting from the fact that the fan hitting the metal housing (which make a very loud noise). Keyboard is not my concern but fan noise does, because a flawed fan can in the long-term burn your machine. I though that lenovo should have updated their fan because the the laptop has been out about 3 months. So I ordered from Amazon when it is first out.I got it yesterday and clearly, the fan noise is still there. The FAN runs 100% all the time. I can also hear that the fan is hitting something if I stay in a quiet room and listen carefully. Lenovo clearly has not updated their bios or fan design at all.I am not sure if I will need to keep this one or not, because clearly it has some flaws in the model (fan design)[...], although the form factor is great. I will wait for a few days and update my experiences. Because Amazon does not have the model in stock, I will not be able to exchange for another one.Except for the fan noise design flaw, the YOGA 13 is mainly for people who want a new laptop but with occasional tablet function. It has many GREAT things as follows:1) slick design;2) ideal laptop and tablet combination;3) very bright screen with IPS;4) really nice keyboard with deep punctuation and curved edges;5) very easy to upgrade with larger SSD and memory.

    Waited Forever I gave this product all 1′s because I never even got to have it. I ordered my Yoga a month ago. There were billing issues (on Lenovo’s side) and then last week I was called to be told that they were no longer carrying the parts for my order and would I like this instead? I actually ended up upgrading with the promise that my laptop would ship today (2/11/13 – almost 1 month exactly from my initial order). When I went to check my order status though, it said estimated ship date 5/20/13! Why, after waiting a month would I want to wait 3 MORE MONTHS to get my highly anticipated product?!?! By that time, they probably would have ran out of other parts and I most certainly wouldn’t have been getting the shiny new innovative product I had been looking forward to. Anyone who loves computers knows the newest thing is out of date almost instantly.So I cancelled my order. Guess what? I had been given some “freebies” to placate me when they had to change my order the first time. They’re no longer “free”. They shipped before my laptop (obviously) and now I need to return them or be charged the full amount for things I didn’t even want, order or ask for in the first place.The worst part is, I’m just so dissapointed. I heard great things about Lenovo. They’re products and customer service and I received neither.So if you’re thinking about getting a Yoga, and you don’t want to wait 1-4 months for your product, don’t do it. Go some other route. There’s other, really sleek, convertible laptops out there. Asus, Sony or Dell. Companies that won’t jerk you around saying you’ll get your laptop next week… oh wait, nope, 3 months from now!And, of yeah, Lenovo, I’m going to post this review anywhere I can.
