Engadget Review

The Yoga 2 Pro addresses many of our complaints about the original, and is now one of the best touchscreen Ultrabooks you can buy, especially at this price. We just wish the battery life had improved more.

BEst computer I've had...except for one nagging issue. It has a hard time reading devices from the USB port, frequently drops the connection or does not connect at all. YEs it gets anoying when all my data is on an external hard drive.

Broke within a year. Screws started falling out, then the charger socket split in half so i couldnt plug my charger into my laptop properly. Then the charger started getting so hot near the end of the laptop that it burnt my hand. Then one day the laptop wouldn't turn on. Then I asked for a replacement and they said that I didn't have international warranty, despite the fact that they did on the day that I bought it...Also the WiFi kept disconnecting (had to restart the PC)Note to self: Don't buy from Lenovo again :(

READ UPDATE COMMENT BELOW THIS REVIEWLooks great out of the box but once you own one you'll wish you bought elsewhere. Very regularly Bluetooth will lockup your laptop for a minuet and devises will drop out, Lenovo support is very bad with no updates even though many users are complaining. Mouse pad is not user friendly and resizes your screen a lot. The screen flickers... You should really check online for users feedback before buying for a complete picture, people have reinstalled Windows trying to sort this out, spending hours trying to fix it. Customer support is very lacking. I hope Lenovo release updates soon to fix their problems but it is very quiet from them... I'll not buy any Lenovo device again.

It's a great machine, highly recommend it. Looks good, quiet as a whisper, light, and powerful enough to run most Windows software. Highly recommend it.

Best computer I have ever had. I run very large programs and this holds up pretty darn well. I can't say it is perfect, but I have never met a laptop that can do what this one can.
