I enjoy using my Yoga 13 (including the package / form factor, extra internal slot for a second mSATA, convertible capability and touch screen).
If Lenovo views this forum I would like to share what I hope to find in a future Yoga (keep current form factor):
1) Two RAM slots (two sticks will increase Desktop Graphics Performance on the HD 4000 - like Surface Pro).
2) Backlite keyboard (like ZenBook)
3) At least two more USB ports (total of four)
4) 400 NIT brightness screen (like Surface Pro)
5) Grid integrated with screen to support Wacom stylus (like Surface Pro)
6) At least 3MP camera for video calls (like many other Ultrabooks)
All of the above capabilities / technologies are available (as demonstrated on other computers - but not one computer has it all). It's just a matter of time and which manufacture will incorporate all this stuff into one beautiful machine. It would be nice if size, weight and cost didn't also increase with these enhancements.
- courtacy to willybug from other forum.
Please note his points, I believe Lenovo would work on these matters.
What would others like to see?

Any news on Backlited Keyboard Yoga 13 any time soon? I need that feature. And Still hope and waiting to see that and buy My Yoga 13.
In tablet mode, the onscreen keyboard is of course lighted. In laptop mode you can just fold the screen angle a few degrees more acute, and the brilliant screen will highlight the white lettering on the keys. I loved the backlight keys on my macbook, but don't feel the loss here. Notice many of the critics on this issue havent tried a yoga. In a lap position, there is a very natural way to angle the keyboard up on your belly, keep the hinge on your lap, and the screen facing your eyes but also lighting your keys.

I badly need this convertable that uses 360 degree techonology and I also need the option of backlit keyboard. The main problem is, only lenovo can provide 360 degree convertable + backlite keyboard together, as they have the patent of 360 degree. Otherwise, I would not wait for Lenovo. Had there been no patent for 360 degree to lenovo, other companies whould have privided this 360 degree convertable + backlite keyboard together long time ago, and Lenovo could have done this silly thing. I am pissed off on Lenovo for this trick/blunder, whatever!

Yeah, I would have purchased Lenovo but NO backlit keyboard is a deal breaker for me. I work even when I go to bed. There is NO way I am going to leave the lights on while my husband is sleeping. Also when you are in the dark in airplane or wherever. I ended up buying Sony Ultrabook $1600. I am not happy with their touchpad but I would compromise just because it does have the backlift keyboard.
You are correct it is definitely INCOMPLETE without that feature. That is like going backwards without that feature
