DON'T BUY Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro!

Update 2/7/2015:
Will be returning this laptop. Since it does this "yoga" thing, all software thinks it's a tablet! Outlook client emails are formatting as if they are on a mobile device (very skinny), and font on remote desktops is itsy-bitsy and can't be changed.

1/19/2015: Ordered a new PC laptop today: Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro - 80HE000LUS - Light Silver

This new processessor allows the laptop to run without a fan. And, no harddrive in most any laptop anymore, BTW.

Will let you know how it goes*.

p.s. I thought the yoga thing was stupid but it's growing on me...

*I like the machine so far, but:

  • Power cord is too short.
  • Removed Harmony software - constantly popping up to ask if I wanted to optimize this or that, and wouldn't hold previous preferences. Gone!
  • Arghhhh... All that real estate at the top of the keyboard and you didn't include the F-keys row?? Annoying to have to click FN to activate an F-key.
  • Some Outlook 2013 emails display in their mobile format (irritating!!) and no way to convince the machine is not a mobile device. Even the old emails that were brought over from my previous machine are now formatting in mobile. Maybe since this Yoga can turn into a tablet, Outlook thinks this is mobile. Dunno but really sux!!
