Was still cheaper with the VAT back deal earlier last month even tho stock was in short supply.

Cold from me n I want one!

This is a great bargain for those willing to upgrade it themselves to more memory and 2.5" SSD.

I believe the memory is soldered on this model so no upgrade; if my own memory serves me well.

I think you're right, strange that the review says it is "upgradeable" - I guess the Flex is the one with the slot.

"... At least the device can be upgraded by the user."

I believe to change the hd in one of these is a complicated job
#6
Oh just seen the pictures looks easy enough!
#7
Changing the HDD is a problem, as it's not a standard size or connector.
However, adding a SSD to the M.2 slot should be be easy enough.

If you are looking for a convertible that's bigger than 10", with a reasonable processor, and a full-hd screen, there isn't really anything else for close to this price.

Its an i3 Laptop for 400 quid. Whats not to understand?
#13
I wanted a screen bigger than a tablet but not a big heavy 15.6 laptop so this fits perfectly, portable too and the second hard drive slot is handy
#14
this or £340 more for a 64GB Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and keyboard? Or this AND an iPad Air, in preference to the Surface?

You can get i5 laptops for this price. Why would you want a keyboard that partially folds round? Pointless

Surface is a great bit of kit but it is at the premium end. The type keyboard is fantastic

I understand what you mean if thats all you want. I guess you can get an i5 for that. I have the yoga2 11 model. For me its perfect. I travel a lot and spend lots of time on trains and in hotels. I find the folding keyboard useful for watching films. I occasionally use it in this mode when I am working on a document on a external monitor and use the touch screen to browse the internet for research.

It fully folds so it is flat and can be used as a tablet.

Seems like a great deal to me, for an ultrabook with that quality of screen, 500gb, i3, backlit keyboard, 1.6kg weight...let alone the flexibility.

Is there anything else for £400 at this weight/screen/performance price point?
#22
We had one from John Lewis that had i7, 8Gb RAM and 128Gb SSD. what an outstanding machine!

It cost over £700 though.

So this looks a good machine, if you can be bothered to swap the disk to SSD.
#23
13" is a great size, fine for everyday and portable. Be nice if it was i5 but really that is expecting too too much at this price, cheap i5 4th gen start at £350..
#24
Ordered one for me and a family member.

Simply lovely and it does indeed have the keyboard backlight.

Very accomplished piece of kit, unfortunately one has a slightly unaligned hinge, so that is going back for replacement.

How loud is the fan on this thing? I hear it can get a bit noisy with intensive tasks.

Also, how snappy is it? The non SSD and only 4GB of RAM is the only reason I haven't bought yet.
#26
damn, gone up to 450 now
#27
Ive not heard the fan yet and have copied a lot of data on to it etc. Ive now installed an ssd in the second bay and switched windows to that but it already seemed quick enough to me - about par for an i3 I reckon
#28
I can't recall hearing the fan... Good sign

As quick as my work I5 but haven't particularly stressed it.

It has a 8gb ssd as well as base drive, or so the box says

Yeah, I know :( Final question, how's the trackpad? That's the main thing you use really, want that to be good. Might have to spend that extra fifty quid now :(

I find the trackpad fine but im not fussy and dont know your definition of 'good'. I sometimes have a little difficulty with two finger scrolling on it but have only had it a week. TBH I'd trust reviewers who test hundreds of laptops over just my opinion

Agreed it is perfectly fine, in contrast I have a work Lenovo Thinkpad X240 which has the devil's own trackpad.

Seemingly not!

I have been using it for a little while and perfectly happy with it for the cash.

Size/weight is perfect, screen is lovely, nice keyboard (backlit), touchpad is far better than the Lenovo X240 I use for work. It feels special and for something costing £400 that makes it stand out.

Only niggles I can see are
- no easily removable battery (behind the back cover, presumably an easy-ish replacement) and it certainly doesn't last 8 hours! nearer 3
- the wifi performance is variable, seemingly these use a pretty average wifi/Bluetooth card and many people upgrade to the intel equiv for £20-30
- the build quality is generally high but the QC poor (get a good one and your fine!). I swapped out 2 of these as the first two had poorly fitted/bent hinges and the screen didn't sit evenly on the hinges. JL customer service was surprisingly poor but they relented eventually and I now have the laptop the way it was intended to be delivered to a customer! The boxes were delivered in perfect condition so not a transit issue, just QC before the laptop is stuck in a box and taped up.

I ended up getting the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga for an amazing price on eBay thank God, so no more tears for me :)
