Hmm, just got one of these (yoga 2 pro) here and have mixed success with it
and KDE.  Definitely a challenge to get fonts/icons/etc. to get scaled up,
although perhaps not *that* hard.  Have been having trouble with the Intel
7260 wireless chip, although that may have finally sorted itself out as well.

Otherwise, yes the screen is nice, and it's quite light.  Had to buy a USB
ethernet adapter to do a kickstart install.
