I bought the Lenovo as a replacement for a Sony Vaio, which I had for several years but was not overly impressed with. The Lenovo blew me away! It's fast, incredibly easy to use and has numerous features. The keyboard fully retracts when using the Lenovo as a tablet. The keyboard also has two different levels of backlight, or you can turn off the backlight. The keyboard is very responsive to touch, and is laid out intuitively (as opposed to the Vaio, where the keyboard was one of my great frustrations). The touch screen is also very responsive, and I love Windows 8.1! I highly recommend the Lenovo Thinkpad Touch Ultrabook.

Honestly, I could write my college thesis on why this trackpad is so bad. It goes in a squiggly line up and down do make it somewhat to the destination. Also, the later generations of this trackpad apparently have an oleophobic coating which makes the trackpad have more friction than low grit sandpaper. When moving with your finger away from you, it bounces due to the static friction with your finger. A trackpad should be smooth. Also, Synaptics failed me. Whenever the computer would restart, the sensitivity would reset and I would have to change it back again. No mouse could scroll due to the default settings in Synaptics and the only decent mouse system had to be touch. If you're not going to use the trackpad a whole lot, I would probably not recommend this due to the high price, and at 1400 dollars, the trackpad should work. The Yoga system is great and I enjoyed tent and tablet mode, cept in tablet mode, the fans would point straight down into your genitals. Now I'm out of characte

Comment on this review
I really liked that i could flip the screen around and use it as a tablet. I choose the Yoga because of the strength that was put into the hinges and having the keyboard lock when its being used as a tablet.
Very Happy, but the stylus needs work
I had not purchased a laptop in about 10 years so I was new to the stylus, touchscreen, Windows 8, and the trackpad. It took a bit of time to get used to it all. The things I like: - size 12.5 is great for travel - excellent keyboard size - feels durable - lenovo's support app is useful for those with limited experience - not pre-loaded with junk - versatility, it is useful in almost every situation - no ghosting (I saw a lot of this online on blogs) - SSD is like liquid gold, boots in like 5 sec - silent as a mouse The things I don't like: - stylus does not do well near the edge of the screen - stylus is cheap feeling... Still not super comfortable writing with it for lengths of time - windows 8 charm screen is sensitive when accidentally moving my fingers on the trackpad - no product specific screen protectors or cases (it would be nice if someone had them) - price to add the stylus and spot to store it should be stock. the price to add it is way more than it's worth.
This laptop is great because if I want to use it as a tablet. All I have to do is flip the keyboard backwards and the keys actually move into the keyboard, so I can't accidentally press any keys! It boots up extremely fast and is nice and lightweight.
Sweet little work-horse!
This Yoga is just what I wanted. Small and portable for on-the-go, light and sturdy, with a stylus for pen-based note-taking, but still a solid, full-featured laptop too. I love the screen folding all the way around to tablet-mode for taking pen-based notes. But admittedly I use it most in laptop mode and find the keyboard a pleasure -- solid quality-feeling keys. I pair it with a large external LED monitor for extended desktop, a Bluetooth mouse and a USB-to-Ethernet docking station when at my home desk for premium experience. When on-the-go, I find the WiFi is almost as quick as the wired Ethernet. I find no flaw with the pen or multi-touch -- they work great. I love this machine! I am not a fan of touchpads at all and wish there was an easy way to turn it off and on like the special small button that my former HP laptop had. (Maybe I haven't found it yet.) I can't seem to get the hang of reliably right or left-clicking using the corners of this rocking touch-pad either.
Have used it for a week or two. Really love it. Best laptop I have ever used. PROs: Thin design, feels very solid. The metal material covering everywhere of the laptop feels great. Perfect 1080P IPS screen. The color looks better than my IPAD to me. IPAD's color is a bit too red, white looks pink when comparing with Thinkpad Yoga. I5-4200U is much more powerful than I thought. Very satisfied with the speed. Amazing keyboard. The stretching mechanism is fun and useful. The texture of the keys is very delicate, feels very soft, smooth and comfortable. Also the back light of the keyboard is beautiful, and has 2 levels. Best part, the pen. Very accurate and the response is fast, combing with the pressure sensitive screen makes the writing and drawing like real. Really love it! CONs: A little bit heavy. UNupgradable memory. Some softwares appear blurry using the enlarging function under WINDOWS 8, OS problem. Battery life is about 5 to 6 hours typically, still a little short.
Good hardware with software issues
The track pad is hardly usable. without an external mouse, selecting text can be very annoying. The support of external mouse keyboard is tricky. switching from external keyboard/mouse to built in keyboard/track pad does not work without a reboot. The system losses the location relationship between the mouse and the screen. Switching from external screen to its own built-in display does not work. Once I disconnect the external screen, the display on the built in screen does not fill up the display. Require a reboot to fix it. I suspect that the last two issues are related. Otherwise, the unit is fast, the "yoga" feature is good for working on the plane and presentations.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great Product Purchase!
The thinkpad yoga works awesome! It is fast, reliable, and easy to use. The touch screen is great, and it probably one of the best on the market. I would definately recommend this to a friend. It's well worth the money. GREAT product!
Great ultra book
This is a great little ultra book. I do wish it had more options/upgrade availability with memory and storage. I think a model with some more RAM and a slightly larger SSD would be great. Screen is great and clear. Getting used to the smaller screen has taken some adjustment time for me but it's expected. Digitizer is great! Love that feature. It's quick and responsive and I'm glad I got it. Would certainly recommend to others if you want a quality ultrabook.
Great computer, still figuring it out
The Thinkpad Yoga is a cool computer. It is fast, and I like having the touchscreen and keyboard. The only issue I don't like is the mouse is a little too sensitive and will change screens unintentionally. There is a lot I still need to learn to unlock the full value of this computer.
