5Outstanding 2-in-1 convertible laptop!
By 911jason
This 2-in-1 laptop is outstanding! It replaced a Dell XPS 15 from 2011 that just wouldn't play nice with Windows 10.

After exhaustive research of probably 20-30 different computers ranging from the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book all the way up to 17" behemoth gaming machines. My main priority was an outstanding display. The other features I wanted were an i7 processor, minimum 16gb RAM and 256gb SSD drive. I watched hours of YouTube video reviews and comparisons, read scores of articles, and looked at at least a hundred computers in Best Buy and other retailers. In the end, I just fell in love with the Yoga 910.

I wasn't sure if I needed a 4k display or not, and it wasn't a requirement in my search, but I was leaning towards 4k since I plan to use the computer for at least three or four years, if not longer. I know 4k isn't fully utilized by many windows programs yet, but neither was 1080p when I bought my XPS nearly six years ago. So for future-proofing purposes, I think 4k is a plus. This display is really beautiful. Very clear and bright, with good contrast and great color that seems pretty accurate. It's not as bright as my old XPS, which I would generally keep at about 50% brightness indoors. I've been sticking around 75% brightness on the Yoga. So if you intend to use your computer outdoors very much, you might want to look elsewhere. The glossy screen would not help outside, either.

The backlit keyboard has a great feel and good layout. I tested my typing speed for this review at 10fastfingers com and got a 95wpm score, which is significantly better than my usual. My only complaint about the keyboard is the Home/End/Page Down/Page Up keys being combined with the arrow keys accessible only by using the Fn key combo. EDIT: I resolved this issue by downloading the SharpKeys utility and remapping the right side CTRL and SHIFT keys to function as HOME and END keys without the need to use the Fn key.

The touchpad is extremely smooth and responsive. My fingers glide across it's surface and it responds well to two-finger scrolling and other multi-finger gestures. The only minor issue I've had is that the cursor seems to move quite often as I'm right-clicking causing it to miss the target of my click. I don't consider it to be a huge issue and figure I'll probably adjust to it, and it may even be something addressed by a future driver update. EDIT: Found out this is a "Precision Touchpad" as identified by Windows, which is a nice feature that not all laptops have. I have resolved the right-click issue by using the two finger tap which works as a right-click and doesn't cause the pointer to move at all.

The watch band hinge is a polarizing feature based on my research. I find it to be very sturdy and, in my opinion, attractive. It is fairly stiff, requiring two hands to open the screen, but I don't mind that and feel like that bodes well for it's longevity. It easily folds back into tent and tablet modes and stays where you leave it with no undesired movement. The screen also doesn't wobble at all when I'm typing in regular laptop mode.

The silver finish on mine is very attractive and doesn't seem to show fingerprints at all.

Speaking of fingerprints, the built-in fingerprint reader works very well and allows for quick logins with the Windows Hello feature.

Overall performance is very speedy, but you'll have to temper that judgment with the knowledge that this is my first SSD equipped computer. My XPS had a 500gb 5400 RPM hard drive, so pretty much any SSD would probably have impressed. Belarc reports my drive is a NVMe SAMSUNG MZVLW512, if anyone cares for that info. Boot times are incredibly fast and all disk operations seem to be as well. Photoshop start-up time on my old XPS was probably close to a minute or more, on this Yoga it's closer to 10 seconds or less.

I read another user's review about this model having super loud fan noise under light to moderate load. I have had zero problems with heat or fan noise at all. I could barely hear it come on briefly while I was installing all of my apps, syncing my Google Drive and Dropbox and simultaneously trying to watch 4k videos on YouTube with Chrome. The fans are not a problem on this computer, so don't worry about that.

Battery life is hard to judge at this point, because I've been using it heavily while installing my apps and have been plugging it in regularly just to keep it topped up. I'd expect something around 7-8 hours based on my usage so far, but your mileage may vary.

There was no bloatware installed on this computer at all, which was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting to do a clean install right off the bat, but that turned out to be unnecessary.

I will update this review if I have any significant changes to what I've written. I will also be happy to respond to any comments or questions.

5Great design - continues to improve with each iteration
By S. Leng
These are my first impressions after using for 3 days. I have the 4k version with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB hard drive. Even though I have only had limited time with this machine, I have experience with many high-end laptops, both PCs and Macs.

Overall: I really like the looks, design and portability of this laptop. This is a winning design and in my opinion the current market leader amongst ultraportables, rivaled only by the Dell XPS 13 and just released HP Spectre x360 13 inch. My suggestions for further iterations of this model are to reduce the screen reflectivity (or further increase brightness), reduce screen resolution a bit so that battery life can be longer (for 4k model), provide Thunderbolt 3 support, and to make the exterior more scratch resistant (see below).

Looks: I find this laptop quite attractive, and think the watchband hinge enhances the looks.

Build: I find build quality really impressive - fit and finish are top notch. The hinge is quite stiff and I cannot really open it with one hand. However, the stiff hinge means that the screen doesn't bounce when I'm typing. It's too early to tell whether the hinge will loosen with time. One concern - today I accidentally got a small scratch after leaving the computer in my bookbag with only a jacket next to it. This makes me concerned that the exterior of the laptop is rather soft and easy to scratch.

Screen: I really like the thinner bezels and bigger display. The 4k display is crisp but likely quite power hungry. The screen is quite reflective and can be harder to use in an office setting with bright overhead lights. I generally use the screen at 1-2 levels below max brightness. Colors and contrast are good but not exceptional.

Keyboard: Really comfortable to type on. I believe I have read that there is a relatively shallow 1.3 mm of key travel, but the keys have good spring and I don't feel that the keys bottom out.

Trackpad: Really nice; comparable to a Mac and probably the most consistent PC trackpad that I have used. Perfectly sized. Buttons are clicky, not silent.

Fingerprint reader: Often requires 1-2 retries before logging me in.

Ports: Adequate for me but not exceptional. The USB 2 port is good for current and past devices. There are 2 USB 3 ports, one of which (it says on Lenovo's website) supports video output. There is no dedicated video out (eg, HDMI or miniDP), and there is no Thunderbolt 3 support - these are the 2 weaknesses I see.

Speed: Great for my use which is office work and watching videos. Current (7th gen) CPU and 16 GB of RAM means that I can have 5-10 apps and multiple browser windows open at the same time without significant slowdown. I have not tested photo editing, video editing, or gaming. I suspect light photo editing will be fine, but if you want to do serious editing or gaming, then a laptop with dedicated graphics card will be a better fit.

Battery: I have gotten between 6-8 hours of use on one charge doing office work. Note that I have the 4k version - with 1080p screen you will likely get 10 hours or more.

Idiosyncracies: CPU fan issue - when I was setting up this machine I heard the fan quite often and it was distracting. I searched and found some advice for this - turning down the maximum processor state to 99% has been reported to help (although I cannot confirm that this will make any difference). Delete key - holding it down does not trigger continuous delete right away - you have to wait a few seconds before you continuous delete happens.

Thanks for reading. Questions or comments welcome.

4Opinions from a Mac fanboy
By Daniel M. Hendricks
(Purchased at Best Buy because they had an amazing sale.) I live and die by Apple products. However, I wanted a quality Windows laptop to use for development and testing (I am a web programmer). This unit is very amazing, but not perfect. Note: I am NOT a gamer (I work for a living), so I cannot comment on that.

PROS:

- The display: I have never seen a laptop with a screen that is clearer than my MacBook Pros Retina displays. It is so crisp and clear that pictures almost look 3-dimensional. It is breathtaking.
- Construction: One of the reasons that I liked this one was because of the rugged hinger design. With some other makes/models, I was concerned about the 2-in-1 hinge wearing out/breaking after awhile. The entire unit seems to be well-built (except for the CPU fan).
- Price: This until is about $1150 less than the 2016 MacBook Pro w/ Touchbar that I also just bought (to replace my aging 2012 model), but it has similar specs (give or take - sometimes the Mac wins, sometimes this laptop wins.)
- USB-C: I don't know why it is so difficult to find a PeeCee with USB-C ports, however, this laptop has one. (I wish that it had 2, but I'm not complaining since it at least has one.) The USB-C port was another big reason that I bought it over a Surface. Why is this a big deal? Because a) it is the future, and b) most of my Macbook Pro peripherals have USB-C cables, so it is more convenient for using devices on both. Yes, adapters are available and also lame.)
- Keyboard: It has a surprisingly good keyboard, very similar in layout to my Macbook Pro. The right shift key is too small/easily missed, but coming from a long-time Mac user, it didn't take long for me to adjust to the layout.
- Speed: This unit makes even Windows run very well (coming from a guy that is used to running Linux Docker containers on 256MB RAM).
- Touchscreen: I didn't think I would care about it much because I am a programmer. However, it has turned out to be a handy feature.
- Design: The laptop is cute, if you care about that.
- 16GB RAM (delicious)

MAJOR CONS:

- CPU fan: It is *ridiculously* LOUD, even when there is almost nothing open (maybe a browser window). I have sensitive hearing, so this took some adjustment. I have to turn up the TV when I use it, but I also have A.D.D. (and as mentioned, sensitive hearing), so I'm not really sure if that's a solution.
- Display: While it is the best laptop display that I have used (by far), it has major glare issues. I have mostly overcome this by turning up the brightness, which is an acceptable treatment because I tend to like it brighter.

LESSER CONS:

- Trackpad: For some reason, they have separate mouse buttons for left/right click. I still haven't gotten completely used to this, but it's not a deal-breaker. On my MacBooks, I am use to just clicking anywhere on the trackpad and dragging. With this unit, I have to maneuver one finger over the "click spot" when I click and drag. This is odd, but I will get used to it.
- Keyboard: Aside from the tiny right shift key mentioned about, it doesn't have separate function keys (F1, F2, etc). My 2016 (Touchbar) Macbook Pro doesn't either, however, I *very* rarely ever have to use function keys on a Mac. On Windows, it is kind of a regular thing, so you have to do some extra finger acrobatics when you are mashing multiple key combinations (Fn+Alt+F4 comes to mind regularly, as well as F2 for renaming a file).
- Display: I wish the display was 1-2 inches larger. I'm used to 15.4", and the smaller size doesn't leave a lot of extra room when you have multiple panes open for development or are using a browser debugger on a web page.

WINDOWS 10 IRRITATIONS:

- The start menu on Windows 10 clearly was designed to either trigger seizues or rage management issues. It is extremely and literally useless and very irritating. I wish that it had a Windows 7 start menu, but c'est la vie. I have found other ways to be productive.
- No bash prompt. PowerShell is better than old-school DOS prompt, but every time that I need to run as a priveleged user (usually to install something from the command line), I have to right-click+Run as Administrator, and then is asks me, "Are you sure you want to run as Administrator?!!" YES! My account is already an admin user, and it is the entire reason that I took the extra step of right-clicking! Have I ever answered No to this question?!
- It hides task tray icons that I don't want hidden.

A SMALL WINDOWS 10 SHOUT-OUT:

- While Internet Explorer is still *the worst* web browser ever made, I must say that using Edge is noticeable less unpleasant than previous versions of IE. It seems like I have to debug rendering issues less (but still way more oftan than I would like to) than I had to on <=IE 11. Note to Microsoft: Just switch to WebKit already!!

SUMMARY:

- This is an awesome laptop and I do not regret my purchase at all. Despite some flaws, it was the best one that I found available to suit my needs. I contemplated getting a Surface Book, but the USB-C sold me on this unit as well as the $1300+ price difference (For what I paid, I could have gotten 2 of them for the price of a 16GB Surface Book). In fairness, the Surface Books are amazing machines and do not have loud fans that I noticed.
- I'll say it again... The display is really quite breathtaking.

I would have given it 5 stars if not for the loud fan.
