A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition.

Engadget Summary

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet has potential, but ultimately the device feels unfinished. It's a slate with good hardware, complete with a clever kickstand design, that rides on the esteemed Yoga name. Lenovo relied way too heavily on that branding, though; unlike the Ultrabooks with their largely high-caliber specs, the tablet sports an unacceptably mediocre display, packs a sluggish processor and delivers a bizarrely skinned version of Android 4.2. Almost everything about the Yoga Tablet experience feels cheap and shoddy. A relatively budget-friendly price and spectacular battery life lessen the damage somewhat, but ultimately that's not enough to recommend this machine.
