this convertible is NOT durable
 
I used to love this convertable, now I have to hate this convertable
Pros:
-Looks Great
-FAST boot in 7 seconds.
-No Heat issues at all when you keep the dual fans and heatsinks clean
CONS:
-Expensive up front and loses 65% of its value in 2.5 years
-NOT DURABLE, WELL KNOWN TO BE FINICKY
- After almost three years, laptop is only capable of being powered on forever. Cannot allow it to fall asleep and cannot power the laptop off. Why? Because Lenovo improperly designed the SSD screw mount orifice - either the screw is too long or the orifice is NOT threaded deep enough - this allows SSD to wiggle and disconnect from power an uncountable amount of times while the laptop is powered on AND in motion - The circuitry was not designed for that and so with my Yoga 2 Pro, now, if you power the thing off or let it go sleep...it gives you a boot fail upon restart. Nothing you do inside of 19 seconds after you hit that power button or after you woke it up will allow it to boot or allow you to continue to use windows. BUT once you hit that 20 second mark, you are good to go and can use the computer normally.
This is a convertable that regresses into a desktop replacement laptop wannabe.
P.S. ~ No the hard drive is not bad....but feel free to comment on my review
P.P.S ~ I am losing my favorable opinion of Lenovo Laptops and notebookchat Author is retarded...sorry to say buddy

The HDMI port is Micro HDMI, not mini HDMI.

Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 has issues with Bluetooth not working and locking up the complete PC, plus other complaints from customers like me, beware!  Check out the problems online before you buy!!!  Lenovo issued an update but it doesn't help

Yoga 2 Pro review by Digital Versus (http://www.digitalversus.com/laptop/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-2-pro-p17173/test.html#full-review) declares following:

"But there's a trick. What Lenovo doesn't say anywhere in the documentation is that it [yoga 2 pro] doesn't perform as well in tablet mode as it does in laptop mode. Once you switch into Tablet, Stand or Tent mode, the processor runs at just 10% of its maximum speed, coming to a total of 0.76 GHz (yes, you read that correctly)."

Are you able to confirm this very troubling information? As I see it, this would major flaw for yoga 2 pro, since it reduces greatly different possible uses of the laptop

I just got mine in the mail, opened it up.
Turned it on and noticed light bleeding IN the bottom when it was all black. Is that normal? And is there any solution?

The contrast ratio is disappointing, lower than the Ativ 9. It seemed to me that the blacks are not black enough. And the sRGB coverage isn't great either. Otherwise a great laptop and display. TIP: disable ClearType.

Correction: The Intel Wireless-N 7260 NIC in the Yoga 2 Pro is not dual-band.
This is the version in the Yoga 2 Pro: http://ark.intel.com/products/75174/Intel-Wireless-N-7260 (Single 2.4GHz + Bluetooth)

Source: I'm a Yoga 2 Pro owner with a ASUS RT-AC66U router and can confirm no 5GHz support for Wireless N.

"There is only one memory configuration available for the Yoga 2 Pro: 4 GB of DDR3L-1600 MHz RAM" - NOT TRUE.

There are actually 8 gig RAM models out there (were direct from Lenovo US at launch):

Article states:There is only one memory configuration available for the Yoga 2 Pro: 4 GB of DDR3L-1600 MHz RAM. The memory is soldered directly to the board and as such is not upgradeable. There are no empty slots available for the addition of SODIMMs.

Pixel-packed performer. Last year’s Yoga 13 was one of the most popular Ultrabooks yet, and for good reason: while it wasn’t perfect, it was smartly-designed, with a unique (and sturdy) build and good performance for its price point. One year later, can Lenovo’s successor carry the torch?
