Great formfactor
Fantastic high resolution screen
Rubberised exterior makes the Yoga really easy to grip
Accelerometerenabled modes emphasising more of what a tablet can do
Decent battery life
Keyboard can be a little cramped on the right side
Screen moves a fair bit if you touch it
Mediocre touchpad
Camera is only usable for web conferencing, and really, it could be better
Some color reproduction issues, battery life is shorter than expected, not the best selection of ports, rather slow SSD
