Jsoh, Hatfield Often on the move

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Great design, very light and long lasting battery.
Bad points:
The performance is not good enough. I've had the laptop for 9 months now and it has become so slow I have had to stop using it for fear of accidentally hurling it out the window. The main reason I bought the laptop was the 4GB speed. It doesn't seem to be anywhere near this. My internal hard drive is way below max capacity and I regularly clear my browsing cache etc. Often MS office programmes take longer than a minute to open and Chrome regularly crashes. Sometimes my C:drive won't load either. The worst and most frustrating problem is the mousepad. Often it just doesn't respond and I've no idea why. Obviously these are criticisms of Lenovo, not the retailer, whose service was very good.

Alexander, Bath Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Decent battery life of approx 5 hours. For the price paid, very decent keyboard (feels ok, unlike many other manufacturers these days, say, acer) and screen. Lightweight, quite useful in backfolded (tablet) mode when one needs it. Nice package hardware-wise, again considering the price tag. Overall, a very useful piece. Would certainly recommend it since this is probably the best buy at the moment.
Bad points:
The HDD is quite noisy, Windows 8.1 is "welcome back to the old glorious days when all Microsoft made was c**p", a few stability issues with hibernation mode (switched off by default: looks as though Lenovo know something about it). In the tablet mode, the device heats up considerably.

Jayne, Camberley Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is my smallest computer yet (not counting Note mobile phone). I love it- light, mobile, easy to carry around (I purchased a case - off Amazon that looks like a briefcase). Windows 8 is a bit of a learning curve but fun. Battery seems to last fine for the moment... I haven't really had the chance to try it out while traveling, but it charges fast so will be easy to "top up" at airports, etc. Basically... love it!
Bad points:
When flipped over, the keyboard is vulnerable to squashing, scratching, randomly pressing keys. I'd like a pocket of some sort to slip over the keyboard to protect it.

Good points:
Light weight, compact and good design
Bad points:
Not as great battery life as advertised, wifi card auto disables if battery is low, surface OS is a big compromise if you are looking for a proper laptop

Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

2 in 1
Combining the usability of tablet with the power and versatility of a laptop, the Yoga 2 features a fully folding screen, letting you switch from an intuitve touchscreen tablet to a familiar laptop-layout in seconds.

In laptop mode, you can type and navigate as usual using the comfortable Accutype keyboard, 2-finger trackpad or carry on using the touchscreen – whatever works for you.

Designed for touch
Optimised for touch, Windows 8 puts your favourite apps and programs at your finger tips.

Simply touch a program icon to open it and move around using taps, swipes and pinches. It only takes a moment to pick up and is already second nature if you own a smartphone.

The home screen is built around Live Tiles, program icons that display real time information from all your favourite apps including social networking, emails and sports directly on the home screen. You don’t even have to open it the app to receive important info and notifications.

There are additional features too with the pre-installed Windows 8.1 update. These include the reintroduction of the Start button, new Live Tile sizes and adjustable four-way multi-tasking windows along with developments to the lock screen, search and more.

Beyond tablet performance
Performance comes courtesy of a quad-core Intel® Pentium® N3520 processor and 4 GB of RAM that deliver the perfect blend of performance and efficiency. So whether you’re working on multiple documents or simply browsing the web, you can expect seamless computing and an excellent battery life and crystal clear graphics thanks to the HD ready IPS display.

All your documents are stored on a 500 GB hard drive. With plenty of room for files, films, pictures and music, you can take your favourite media with you wherever you go.

Convenient connections
Getting online is simple thanks to built-in WiFi connectivity while integrated Bluetooth 4.0 provides a stable, cable-free connection to speakers, smartphones, mice and much more.

Other handy features include a webcam, SD card reader and Lenovo-exclusive apps such as Yoga Chef and Camera Man.

Built for work, play and everything in between, the Lenovo Yoga 2 11.6” Touchscreen 2 in 1 is the ideal combination of tablet and laptop that’s ready for any everyday task.
