Review Of The Lenovo Yoga 13 Running Windows 8

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 13, and I love it. This is the best laptop I have ever owned on so many levels.  It is light, functional, looks good, runs all my games, and people comment on how they would like one.

The Lenovo Yoga 13 combines the productivity of an Ultrabook™ with the touch experience of a tablet, taking full advantage of the Windows 8 functionality. The screen flips a full 360 degrees into four modes that make it easy to create, share, or consume content. Combine those with its long battery life, and the Yoga 13 provides ultimate versatility.
