_
"Amazon should not sell this sort of cheap Chinese attempts at copying decent computers.11."
_
"The value of my time that has been spent on this piece of junk is much higher than the purchase price."
_
"I purchased the Yoga 2 Pro over the Apple because of the price, but I regret doing that and now that I've had this for a few weeks I'm stuck with this and will be dealing with these pain points every day or using an external display, keyboard, and mouse more to avoid these problems (although keep in mind that two monitors isn't supported)."
_
"In conclusion, Yoga 2 Pro may have some drawbacks, but with its unrivaled screen and relatively lower price, it's an excellent buy nonetheless."

"Amazon should not sell this sort of cheap Chinese attempts at copying decent computers.11."

_
"The one I bought was a floor sample from BB and I got it for less than 700 dollars without the charger or any papers so with the charge it was like 690.The price I got it vs specs was so good that I decided to try it for 15 days and take it back if I did not like it."

Quality

Quality:
"Unfortunately, its quality is terrible, and Lenovo's support has been too.1) When laptop first arrived, a screw on the motherboard was loose, causing the back case panel to not sit tight and making the left hinge really wobbly."
_
"Quality issues aren't fun, but they can be forgiveable if the company handles it well."
_
"It's difficult to find a PC built with the kind of quality you find in Apple products, and the flimsy, ill-constructed feel of pretty much every PC laptop I'd used kept me an avid Mac-user (on top of the fact that I'd preferred OS X to Windows)."
_
"I reverted back to Macbook Pro for most of my usage because this item has too many design faults because Lenovo is using mostly low quality components beyond the aspect of looks."
_
"The pictures and videos it takes are mediocre in quality, especially when you view them on its own gorgeous 3,200 x 1,800-pixel screen."
_
"The computer looks nice and has some interesting features but the quality just isn't there."
_
"I am pleased with the screen's quality for watching videos and engineering graphics."
_
"Boot time usually takes 4 seconds;- Screen quality Amazing!"
_
"Superb, outstanding quality."
_
"The build quality is amazing."
