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

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This was my first Windows computer, and it's great. It works well, and I have had no major problems. My screen did stop sensing my stylus at one point, but it worked fine again after restarting the computer. The stylus that comes with the computer is not all that great in comparison to some other styluses out there, but it's accurate, which is what's really important. My only issue with the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga is that I can't do enough with the trackpad options to meet the requirements that I want. For example, I want the right-click to be when I click with two fingers only, but I cannot turn off the feature that right clicks when I touch the bottom-right corner of the trackpad. Additionally, for whatever reason, I cannot clear my calibration settings for the stylus to redo them, which has made my stylus less accurate as a result
Love my Thinkpad Yoga
I purchased a Thinkpad Yoga to replace my office laptop. It is much smaller and lighter than my previous Thinkpad laptop, yet much more powerful and faster. It boots up in about 20 seconds and shuts down just as fast. It's easy to connect to the docking station and when I'm using undocked, it's so versatile. I can use as a traditional laptop or fold the keyboard 180 degrees and use as a tablet, with or without the attached stylus. Battery life is great as well. Overall, I love it and would recommend it to anyone looking to replace a laptop or workstation.
I have had the device for about a week and am loving it. I bought it to replace/upgrade from another Win 8.1 tablet. Although about twice as heavy as my old device, there are a couple of "over the top" features I'm really digging: --Keyboard is always with me. Even when not in use, I don't have to find something to do with it. --Powerful...I haven't had the lock up/crashing issues with this i7 processor and 8 GB RAM that plagued me with my former, less powerful option. My former device was not a bad one, but was not designed for what I needed. The difference can best be described by saying that I used to have a tablet that could be a laptop (with limitations). Now I have a laptop that can be a tablet as needed with no sacrifice for processing power or capacity. My only disappointment was that the specific model I purchased did not come with all the pre-load software I was hoping for, specifically the Dragon software. Other than that, totally psyched.
Thinkpad Yoga, great machine!
i7 processor, 256 gb SSD, 8gb RAM, touch screen, stylus. The build quality is amazing. The performance is expectionally. I love the flip screen feature. It makes taking hand written notes with the inculded stylus seemless. I find that I use a mix of touch screen and mouse input, whatever I am in the mood for, and I love it. I purchased this machince for medical school. I use it at least 12 hrs a day and it has never skipped a beat. The SSD upgrade was a wise choice the boot up time is 7 seconds! It really outshines many of my classmates apple machines. I have one compliant, the screen has some ghosting issues. It is getting progressively worse. There is also a orange discoloration in the right top corner of my screen. So I have a bad display. I hope to have it serviced over my next break. I really can't be without this computer for even a day. If if wasn't for the faulty display I would have given it 5 stars on the overall review. Truthfully, this was is a great machine.
Great Pen Features in a Hybrid Notebook
I've been very pleased with the ThinkPad Yoga ultrabook. My primary reason for buying the ThinkPad Yoga was its Wacom-based pen mode (stylus included) which I need to use when preparing video whiteboards or teaching online classes. PRO: The Wacom pen system works great with whiteboard software like OneNote. Its ultrabook capabilities make for VERY quick bootup (less than 5 sec) so I seldom bother putting it to sleep and just shut it down. CON: Only one. The multitouch TrackPad may take some getting used to (I haven't fully) due to the small right-click area in its lower right quadrant. My finger seems to stay too close to this area so my left-clicks are often interpreted as right-clicks. It needs to be possible to disable this feature or reduce it to only the edge (most everything else seems to be adjustable). OTHER: there are a LOT of Lenovo apps included, but in many cases it is difficult to figure out exactly what they do. A more comprehensive Users Guide would be a big help.
Great design, poorly executed
I've had my ThinkPad S1 Yoga for 3 weeks and, so far, I've had nothing but problems with it. Video Card keeps shutting down unexpectedly. Included programs won't install properly. Other software-related issues abound. All in all it's been a very frustrating experience and one that has left me with very little confidence that this computer will ever be dependable and competent. If you can get past all of the above there is a ton of nice features on this computer. The ones that work are really useful. I am doing all I can to get through the initial problems and my hope is that I soon will be able to actually enjoy my ThinkPad S1 Yoga.
