- Info: Interact with your ThinkPad Yoga by using simple, intuitive gestures directly on the 12.5" HD or FHD 10-point multitouch display. Its advanced multitouch technology provides a superior touch experience, greater responsiveness, and faster response times. Easily change between four modes - laptop, stand, tablet, and tent - while your system automatically switches system settings and locks the keyboard in place. The secret: ThinkPad Yoga's unique design and touchscreen display allows the screen to flip around 360 degrees, which means you can select the mode you use based on what you choose to do.
The Yoga arrived in very good time and very well packaged. It looked to have been cleaned as part of its refurb. You get the Yoga, Windows 10 Home preinstalled and ready to be activated (key underneath the laptop via a genuine Windows sticker), the Yoga pen, the power supply and nothing else. You don’t get the manual, but it is relatively easy to find.
The 4 reasons I went for this laptop are;
One: it’s a business machine. Business machines are made to last compared to consumer models,.
Two: it doubles as a powerful tablet.
Three: it uses a proper pressure sensitive Wacom pen. The screen is also a 10 point touch screen, so no mouse needed, and a pressure sensitive Wacom screen costs much more than this!
Four: it has 8GB and a decent mobile i5 CPU, and is actually a good size to fit on your lap. A good trade-off between power and real portability.
All seems to working out so far!
CrystalDiskInfo gives the HD up-time as 200 days; someone’s office-hours PC for about 3 years, which sounds normal for many companies I have worked (where people get a new computer every 3 years). The state of the keyboard and case shows it has been well looked after.
The hard drive is the weakest important part of the system, and if you will be using the laptop for productivity (I am; I’m an IT contractor), I would change the hard drive out for a new SSD. The one it comes with is a 5600rpm SSHD and still good for home use.
The Yoga I received suffers from most of the issues you see on the web from customers who bought them originally; feet have come off, and there is an issue of minor (temporary; gone in 2 mins) burn-in on the screen. Annoyances rather than deal breakers for me.
Some things are not obvious so you really need to download the manual.
No Lenova specific software pre-installed. If you do download one thing, make it Lenovo Vantage. That will download and install the latest drivers and firmware.
Overall very recommend...
Delighted this this 2 in 1 device. Oozes with quality. Touch screen actions are very smooth and picture quality is excellent. There was a small hiccup when setting up windows The display was stuck in " will be ready in just a moment" however restarting solved it. looking forward to using the built-in Wacom stylus.
It was missing two small rubber feet but that was easily fixed. I happened to have some rubber 'bumpon' feet from Lidl. I knew they would come in handy sometime 50p in reduced basket.I will check out ITZOO again.
