I have the same issue as others. On my HP Pavilion the bright yellow in Paint is very muted, pale and greenish brown on the Yoga 2 Pro. As I design websites, I don't see this working out well.

Took a photo comparing my HP Pavilion and the Y2P (in front). Huge difference in color!
This is a great comparison photo, and gets the yellow on the Yoga 2 Pro pretty close to what I'm seeing in person. Thank you, TwhiteInCo!

Same issue here. Just did a calibration with the i1 Display Pro, and it did NOT fix this problem.
Picked up my Yoga 2 from Best Buy today, manufactured 9/29/13. This is a shame.

I decided I'm done with the Yoga 2. It's a shame, but really, who has time to wait around for this to be fixed when an IPS is crying out to be calibrated (which this can't) and then used for photo work.
I'm returning it tomorrow. Very disappointed.

Having the same problem. As soon as I installed Chrome I realized something was very wrong with yellow. If I don't hear of a fix before the BB return period ends I'll be returning it as well. I'm really hoping they come out with a firmware fix because besides that I'm really loving it.
Just saw this review: http://www.techradar.com/us/reviews/pc-mac/laptops-portable-pcs/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-thinkpad... with an interesting quote "Interestingly, Lenovo is pitching the ThinkPad Yoga 2 Pro at the professional crowd. With its improved display it will be hoping that creatives choose it over the MacBook Pro"
lets hope it can still achieve those goals

Thanks for noting this and for the pics here and on NBR. I'm still reading through the section on NBR...
Has anyone made an external display connection and if so, how is the output color on an external display?
(you may have in the comparisons to 'normal desktop display' - I'm just checking to make sure the signal producing those was from the yoga rather than another system)
Also, would anyone be willing to let us take a look at their system for comparison? Please PM me your contact info and the type and serial number number on the bottom of the unit.
