Top end Lenovo 2in1 convertible laptop, 13" QHD Screen, with good specs, and i7 processor.
Was 1200, now £300 off, and 2 year John Lewis Warranty too...
Blurb below, but looks a proper bargain to me, a lot of computer for the money.
Yes,. I know there are cheaper for the specs, but this is a top of the line ultrabook, not 2 inch thick argos or medion special.

It's actually cheaper than the current i5 model...

Have some heat as that is a great price.

Personally I dont like the colour, I'm waiting for the 710 to come back into stock. The YOGA's are great machines.

Has Lenovo fixed the fan speed/noise issue?

It's so bad that they don't include a photo specifically from the back of the device :p

Was looking at one in JL before Christmas, but was put off by £1200 price tag.,.. If it was this price then, I'd have snapped their hand off...
And the colour is quite nice in real life...


Mind you, I like the orange too...

I'm really torn on this one for my own use...
I told myself I was going to wait for the kaby lake refreshes, but they seem to be taking forever, and lets face it, will be substantially more expensive than these...
It's a lot of machine for the money...

I have this device myself if anyone has any questions. I use it mainly in fold up mode with the keyboard folded back as a stand and effectively a fancy tablet. I really couldnt be happier with it. It's a great device for someone who likes the convenience of a tablet but the functionality of a laptop.

Purchased 710 Silver one from John Lewis 2 days ago for £599 and could n't be more happier. excellent build quality and screen is so much better then other full hd laptops I've used, battery life lasts whole day average 9 to 10 hour usage. Overall very good value for money.

Does the track pad work accurately? I went into Currys to look at the 510 due to the deal posted and the track pad was all over the place!

Keyboard is excellent, really nice to type on, has moulded keys rather than painted and the back lighting works well.
Real battery life can take me through a whole day of work easily (lots of chrome tabs, different office applications, usually always more than 5 programs open). I'd say if you're using it for leisure then the battery life should easily last close to the 9 hour estimate. Videos look good on this laptop and the clarity of the screen is awesome.

In the flesh these look very dated to me. There is a wide border round the edge of the screen making the machine much bigger than it needs to be. Side by side with a latitude 7370 or an xps 13 it's just chunky. Apparently there is a new xps 13 out with the 360 degree hinge.

I got this with the i5 on Black Friday for 699.95. The i7 was the same price as now at the time but had 3 year guarantee rather than the two currently on offer. Still a good deal. The laptop has a great screen and the speakers are impressive for a laptop so slim.

There is, but the reason the xps manages to get by on a small border is because they put the webcam is an utterly stupid position. That is the sole reason I'm not considering the dell.

Bought the PCWorld offer of Yoga 510 before Christmas for £350. It's i3, but upgraded RAM from 4GB to 16GB for £90 and installed 512GB SSD had lying around. Fantastic machine, very sturdy. This one is i7 and QHD screen. Probably would have gone for this one if I didn't have the 510 already.

The XPS range also suffers from serious coil whine and is something Dell has refused to fix for years.
I could hear it from around 3ft away and I found it so bad it sold my machine as it made it unusable to me.

I have a Yoga 2 Pro and I've had no end of trouble with it. Went back first time because of a faulty keyboard and it took ages to get it returned. I've been trying to avoid sending it back again because of this but now I've got to send it back for broken wireless, over heating, and a dodgy clickpad. Wish I'd got a Thinkpad.

I can back that up, I just returned the new inspiron 15 7560. The coil whine is similar to a geforce graphics card

Coil whine has nothing to do with a fan.

XPS Coil Whine

I will post this information on every Dell thread and at any mention of an XPS machine to stop anyone else unknowingly falling into the same trap as I did.

The x360 is OOS now but it was in the other Spectre thread on here.

If you're not bothered by an M7 and don't mind a laptop as opposed to convertible, the 12.5" HP G1 is QHD and can be had for £650.

Never knew about that, really poor.

Coil whine on a premium product is pretty shocking.

Once you notice it, it will drive you insane.

The keyboard is nice and key travel is a cross between a macbook air and new mac book.Once you get used to typing on the low travel keys its great. Im not the fastest typer so my skills are a weaker link than the keyboard itself.

Battery will surely last a day. The screen in almost 4k and it has an i7 CPU with 8GB ram so all of those draw a lot of power. The 1080p i5 version lasts a smidge longer but on balance this is a superior, more future proof machine. I could easily get 7hrs out of this machine.

There are machines that last longer but if you want near 4K resolution and i7 power that is feather light with gorgeous screen hinge with plenty of ports then this is for you. None of the compromises effected me a jot so for me at least this is the best machine on the market. My only gripe is that the bezzels are wide but it means a bigger base, better keyboard and bigger battery so on balance its something i can live with.

No. Only the USB2.0/charge port.

Having said that, the macbook USB C adaptor I have works great as a port multiplier

I got mine in silver for around £20 on ebay and now have 3 more USB 3.0 ports, micro SD and another USB C port!
