Engadget Review

The ThinkPad Yoga's self-flattening keyboard is a neat idea, butit would make more senseon a smaller machine. All told, you can easily find Ultrabooks that offer sharper screens, longer battery life and comparable performance -- sometimes for about the same price. If pen input is important, though, the ThinkPad Yoga is by far your best option, and it happens to be a solid performer in its own right.

Cons
  • Relatively bulky
