I am an IT professional who needs a reliable, and solid product for daily use. The Lenovo Yoga 15 has been perfect!

Form factor is great - not too small and not clunky. Touchscreen is nice and the ability to fold over the screen and use as a "tablet" is excellent. The best thing about the laptop is the keyboard. Ea
The one thing I do not like is the function button is next to the Ctrl key and I hit it accidentally all the time when wanting to use the Ctrl key. If it was moved up this would be perfect
