    Got this laptop instead of a tablet for when my husband and I travel, and we can copy pictures over and watch movies. He's excited about the specs, but I can't tell you what they are. I'm excited about how light it is, the touch screen flipping back is nice, and it's way faster than my previous laptop. Battery life is great. It does seem a little flimsy, but just be gentle with it. Windows 8 (or 8.1 on this one?) took some getting used to, but the laptop/tablet 2 in 1 made it easier.

    I love this thing!

    A friend of mine has an IdeaPad and when I decided it was time to get a new tablet, I asked to try it out for a day, and I fell in love with it. The IdeaPad 2-in-1 does everything I need it to and still feels like a proper Windows computer, which is something my Android tablet couldn't do, and while I love Android, to me Windows is more practical. However, GOOD and FREE Windows 8 apps are still few and far between (I seem to recall Android had that problem compared to iOS when it first came about, so maybe just give it time). So far I haven't found a single one at Microsoft's apps store that I liked, and the ones that came with it leave something to be desired; most are trial. But you can always install your regular PC Windows' programs in it if you know how to do it over a network or USB. Battery life varies hugely depending on what you do with it. If you turn off a lot of the flashy bells and whistles the battery life can be around 7 hours of continuous use or even longer depending on what you are doing. With just occasional use, mine so far has been on the battery for 3 days and is only now at the 25% mark. The screen is crisp and the colors are pretty good too, and the large size trumps most tablets out there. It's very responsive and I haven't had any problems with it. The keyboard being always attached is both a godsend and a bit of an annoyance. I don't like the feeling of keys on the back when holding it in tablet mode. Overall, the IdeaPad seems to be very well built, with some very good hardware - Lenovo quietly upgraded the newest ones with the newest Intel chips - except the camera. The camera is a complete disappointment. It might be good for casual videochats but its 1.3-megapixel resolution is unacceptable in 2014! I believe the main thing is not to think of this product as a tablet, but as an ultra-portable laptop computer that can fold up and double as a tablet. I do miss many of my Android apps and I wish there were proper Windows equivalents of them, but otherwise I'm very satisfied with it because I don't need to vary the way I do things on my desktop when using my 'tablet'.

    Love this computer!! This computer is light and super portable. The battery lasts all day. I no longer take my cord to work as long as I plugged it in the night before. Easy to use. Is great for carrying while out traveling.

    Chose this over Surface due to price and all (keyboard) included and Lenovo reputation. Needed to be able to run Office, Internet research, Bank activity - basic home/casual use and this works great - some tablets I considered would not handle these things. Not a tech guru, so learning to navigate 8.1 is a challenge and needed help from others since no instructions included (never are these days!)

    Over all I am impressed. This machine boots in less than 5 seconds. Light weight and portable. I love that its a tablet but you have the keyboard with you any time you need to type. The screen is nice and clear and the speakers are good. I liked it so much I moved to the Solid State Drives for my personal desktop. I recommend purchasing a anti-glare from amazon. Bestbuy did not have any available.

    Was familiar with Lenovo brand from work experience. First purchase outside of Dell for personal use. Love the full-sized keyboard that Lenovo (IBM) is known for (similarly with Dell) regardless of computer size. No issues with anything so far. Seems to be user friendly.

    Great Laptop Overall

    This laptop is great for the price. The speed is unbelievable. It easily plays Minecraft and mostly any game. It works great for light gaming, web browsing, and for any student. I recommend it to anybody who is looking for a all-purpose laptop/tablet. Although, I do not use the tablet function very often as I have my iPad mini which I love to death. I also love the fact that Lenovo has included their Energy Manager software which allows you to do a "fan cleaning" which blows all the dust out to prevent overheating and a "gauge reset" for the battery to keep the battery in tip top shape. Overall, this is a wonderful laptop. Please note, the accout I posted this review on is my mother's. I'm pretty much her secretary, if you will.

    Picks up WIFI very fast with good consistent signal. Bright graphics sized well for clarity but not too bulky. Has the plug ins I need rather than having to pick up adapters. Screen seems not so easily greasy from fingers as different type I had. Like the adpatabilty from Keyboard to pad

    I love this lap top is light weight very convenient, you can carry it just about any where and forget you're even carrying it. Using windows 8 has been a little challenging for me having not ever used it but it just takes a little trial and error. Still getting used to it though.

    We needed a tablet that supports Java for essential programs. It was between this and the Surface Pro. The keyboard size works better for us on the Lenovo. Windows 8 was a bit of a challenge, but I found an app that puts the start button on the desktop mode page and we're good to go.

    Bought 12/5/13....Fantastic in all 4 modes. Fantastic build quality, fit & finish. Upgraded to 8.1 ( easy) and loving this little Yoga 11S so far. Quick boots, nice screen, great keyboard....trackpad works great too. The orange looks great, but it's inside that is the best. Getting used to win 8.1 at the moment vs OS (Mac). Have both now. Nice combo.....Will update in 30 days or so......GREAT BUY

    I loved this laptop since the day I bought little did I know it was going to start acting up. The laptop starts acting up out of nowhere to the point where I have to close it and re open it. it doesn't do this all the time however it does happen and considering I just bought it a month ago its not acceptable. I love this laptop I just wish it wouldn't act up.

    Love the new computer. I would say my only complaints are that it has windows 8, but you cant do much about that. Bigger - issue is that it has only 2 USB ports & no VGA ports. I was unaware and showed up to a meeting unprepared. Had to buy adapotor afterwards.

    I bought this laptop primarily for work. I was looking for portability as well. I loved it overall but the only thing that I didn't like was the battery life and that's the most important to me. I need a laptop that will last all day at work and my commutes to/from work. With heavy heart, I had to return it. I couldn't justify keeping it if my primary purpose was to lug it around and rely on it running all day without needing a charge. If it was going to be used primarily at home or occasional visits to coffee shops, I would have kept it. I exchanged it for the Macbook Air 11".

    Bought this computer for my daughter who is a junior in college. Very lightweight and small making it easy to carry with her yet it functions as a powerful computer tool. She has had three different computers but considers this one the best. Functions as a tablet also.

    The best tablet laptop out there. I did a lot of research in this category and found that this is the best in the category in the market today. Display is crisp. Great battery life and processing speed with the new Haswell processor. Good looks. PORTABLE. Great product.

    I use a Lenovo T430 at work and I'm still on Windows 7. I'm not computer savvy so the change to Windows 8 is a challenge for me and is taking a while for me to get used to. I do like the flip design and the touchscreen. I am using Picasa for my photo storage. I have a MAC and love iphoto. Still trying to learn Picasa, but downloading pictures was very easy.

    This Lenovo is great. The SSD in it lets it boot right up and its great for its size. It fits perfectly in my back pack for classes without taking up a lot of room and its not heavy. The tablet functionality is also really convenient. I love it!

    I have a few lap tops but this is the best one I have had yet. I like how easy it is to change from a lap top to a tablet. It charges pretty fast too. It is the perfect size. I can put it in almost any bag I have and carry it with me anywhere. I love it.
