Not the fastest or the prettiest, but one of the cheapest and the sturdiest!
I have bought a bunch of these in all three generations for myself and clients. They've been the deal of the day a number of times and I've bought them elsewhere too. They usually sell out as the Deal of the Day. I'm a computer tech who works with some small offices that need windows touch screen computers for an app or two. I also think they make a great student laptop. This third gen has an updated processor, a little longer battery life, and supposedly a little stronger frame. These are in no way a powerhouse, but for a laptop of this size and price they're very nice. It works well as a laptop and it works well as a tablet when you flip the screen all the way over. For this "Deal of the Day" Woot or Amazon made a new product page so that's why the only review is from today.
Yes they're clunky. For their size they have a big bezel around the screen, they are a little heavier than you would expect, and they aren't as thin as some. The Amazon weight is totally wrong. This is a little over 3 pounds. But on the flip side of the coin, they can take a beating. They have a strong frame and are rough-and-tumble ready. They're military spec--whatever that means. I feel secure giving the 11e to my kids. Cheap laptops don't often stand up to abuse and the Yoga 11e really does. I think I've worked with over 20 of just this 3rd generation over the past year or so and there have been no hardware failures. Most of these have been employee laptops and in the same situation other laptops have failed when abused.
The screen is low resolution, but if it were higher resolution everything on the screen would be even smaller. I don't want high resolution on a small laptop like this. It's IPS so it has good viewing angles. The touch works well in laptop or tablet mode.
The processor isn't very powerful. The Celron processor in this third generation has been the 3150, but now it's the 3160. The only difference is that the turbo mode is not quite 10% faster in this 3160. It's not the type of laptop that you open a ton of windows and programs at one time. I think it's perfectly usable for web, Netflix, Word, etc. It's perfect as long as you're not trying to do all that at once! :) My kids play Minecraft on it and don't complain. It doesn't come with Microsoft Office. The second generation Yoga with the Core-M processor is a good bit faster but it's about $400 on Amazon today. There is a i3 version of the 3rd gen, but I've not seen it inexpensive.
Everything else is good too. I like the keyboard, but it's not backlit. The touchpad is ok but I prefer actual left and right-click buttons. The touchscreen works great. The speakers are pretty good. You get two USB, an SD card slot, an HDMI out, a wired internet port, and a rectangular power cord port. Both USB are third generation. The 720p webcam is ok but nothing special. The power button is on the side so you can reach it in tablet mode and is one of those you have to hold for a second or two for it to turn on. There are physical volume buttons next to the power button. The battery life is nice and long. I've not timed it, but I think we get around 8 hours out of it. The 128GB SSD won't win any speed awards, but it's a lot faster than a spinning disk and in a convertible you need a drive that can be moved around. The drive is much faster than the previous generation Yoga 11e.
These aren't hard to open up. Something like 7 screws on the bottom panel and it pops up. There's only one ram slot and the hard drive is the M.2 format. The physical format is m.2 and I believe that it uses the SATA protocal. I don't have any way of verifying if these can use PCIe m.2 drives before the deal of the day is over. I'm not positive on the SATA protocal, but I am sure about the m.2 for all the gen 3 I've used.
I think most of the time I've gotten Windows Pro with these, so I'm sad this only has Windows home. The main difference between home and pro is that you can connect Pro to a local Windows Server Domain. Windows pro also has a little more control over Windows Update in Windows 10.
I like these Yoga 11e. It won't win style awards, but there's nothing uglier than a stylish laptop in a pile of broken plastic. This is a tough little laptop/tablet that will survive to be used again tomorrow.

Lotta bang for the buck!
Being an IT Tech for the local school district, I can say that we have literally thousands of these laptops and they have held up exceptionally well, especially in an environment where students don't care how they treat a computer because they didn't (or their parents didn't) pay for it.
The SSD in them makes up for the CPU -makes it seem more like an i3 than a celeron, and the display is fantastic. I've had 11.3" laptops with full HD screens - this one is better. The full HD was so small that it messed up my eyes - these screens are crisp and I don't have to wear reading glasses.
No, you won't be playing the latest 3D games on it, but for web surfing or basic work, they do the job while still staying portable. Forget a Chromebook - get one of these and stick with Windows!
Our school district pays in excess of $550 for these through our supplier - snatch them up at this price while you can!

For the money ($280) this really is a five star. Overall I would have to say that this is a 4 star as far as satisfaction of usage is concerned. The display looks great despite only being 720p in resolution. This resolution is plenty for an 11 inch screen. Images are crisp. The keyboard is top notch. Typing on it is a very satisfying experience. I could type for a very long time on this machine. Feedback from the keys is great. Wi-Fi connectivity is pretty good. I am able to get good speeds from my home network. The three things I am using this for:
1. Web browsing
3. Microsoft office applications
I am able to do all fairly effectively without many hiccups. The only irritation I noticed is lagging when trying to scroll with the touchpad on certain websites. Although, using the touchscreen (not touchpad) to scroll instead on these particular websites seems to work much better. The touchscreen is fairly responsive and is a nice experience in tablet mode. Don't expect this to be your IPad, however. For a 2 in 1, I cant imagine there being a better value at this price point. This machine handles exactly what I need it for.
Another plus is a very easy upgrade from 4 gb RAM to 8 gb RAM. Very simple (took about 5 minutes) and ups the performance a little for another 50 dollars. Although, don't expect significant performance improvements by doing this. The main thing holding this machine back is the limited Celeron processor. However if you only intend to browse, stream, and use Microsoft office applications, you should be very pleased with the value you are getting in this machine. I also love the robustness of this laptop build. I never worry about having to be gentle with it, which is an advantage when you have toddlers climbing on you constantly. Overall, very happy with the purchase, although I had always planned on splurging for an i5 with an SSD. I'm glad I didn't.
