I was hoping to pick up an ultrabook in the sales but nothing materialised. I'm looking for something light and thin to take on my travels with me.

Ideally it will have:

- Good battery life (4 hours plus)
- Small form factor (13-14")
- Touchscreen (probably pushing it in the budget)
- Small ish plug and adaptor.
- HD Screen 1080p

In terms of power and ram, I will be using it primarily for internet browsing and spreadsheet functionality. Ideally I'd like it to handle HD video and possibly 4k video if the screen makes it worthwhile.

Not fussed about the version of Windows or whether it actually comes with Windows...

Budget is £500 but happy to pay less and for the right machine can up it a bit.

Location: Manchester / Littleborough

Look out on Amazon warehouse they now have 20% off.

I got:

Lenovo yoga 3 14
- i7-5500u
- 8gb ram
- 256 ssd
- fhd touchscreen and 360 degree hinge so it works like a tablet
Paid: 390

Also I got

Lenovo IdeaPad 710
-i7-6560u
- 8gb ram
- 256 ssd
- fhd but no touchscreen
Paid 430ish

Already got the yoga, IdeaPad supposed to be delivered today. Im kinda fond of the small form factor and lightness (only 1.1 kg) of IdeaPad, will compare the two and pick up which I prefer and return the other one.

If you like you can have one at cost price + shipping (otherwise if I return you should still be able to buy them at very similar price if you're lucky enough to grab one).

As of now, there is nothing interesting in the warehouse, but it's worth checking it regularly as they add stuff often

How long does the battery last on this?

When I search for the model number you've provided, it links to a 15.6" laptop?

Interesting, I did look at the Amazon Warehouse and didn't see anything at all. Will keep my eyes open.

The Yoga 3 would be great!

To update, received the 710, lovely machine in general but the piece I received is a wreck. Lid is scratched like it has been done so intentionally and there's so many of them. Case is cracked which causes the lid around screen come off. I would happily keep if it was in normal condition that but it's going back straightaway. I also moaned on Amazon about yoga 3 that it has couple of scratches that were not mentioned in description and they refunded me 40 quid. So keeping the yoga for 350, good luck with finding yours, I missed yoga first time as it was sold while I tried to checkout, but it appears very next day and there were two pieces available. Check regularly:)

My bad I genuinely thought it was 14". It is that one. Battery checked and it seems to last around 3-4 depending on use.
