Not a bad price. But they were probably over priced to start with !

Patronising and totally unnecessary, how about posting a deal yourself instead of picking posts to bits!

I bought a similar lenovo 2in1 last year. Can count the times I've used it as a tablet on one hand ad it's really too big and heavy to be practical. Wish I'd bought a more compact laptop now but that's just me.

For the main specs:

1080P 14" Full HD Display
Intel® Pentium® Gold 4415U Processor
128GB SSD
4GB RAM
Fingerprint Sensor

The 4GB ram would be a drawback for multitasking, the i3 range of processors do perform better based on benchmarks. Although I have not used a unit with this processor myself so it could be decent. The full HD display is a bonus as well as the SSD at this price range.

There's a nice big red button which takes you to all the specs

OP took the time to post the deal, there's a big red 'get deal' button there for a reason.......

Probably not the best way of communicating it but I totally understand his frustration!
For the little effort it takes I think it's reasonable to expect people who are posting Tech. deals to also include some basic spec at the very least!
Would save a lot of bandwidth, time and effort for the people viewing the deal

After removing bloatware and installing updates, you should have around 100gb left.

Heated..

I bought one myself for the boss this week.

Couple of updates on the specs.

Single SO-DIMM. So to upgrade to 8GB RAM is going to be a bit expensive. But 4 will be fine for 90% of people.

Got a USB2 and USB3 socket as well as USB-C.

Won’t charge from USB-C unfortunately.

Full size SD slot and full size HDMI which is good.

Nice full HD screen too. Glossy but really nice quality.

There is is a very similar spec model with the lower 1366x768 res screen for £499. So this is a good deal.

One thing that may be of interest. According to the Hardware Maintenance Manual:

download.lenovo.com/con…pdf

it has a 2.5 hard drive bay as well as the M.2 slot.

Can’t confirm as I haven’t taken the case off mine yet, don’t think the boss would be too happy if I start tearing her new laptop apart!

Looking at the web page it's formatted in a way that'd make it a PITA to copy n paste. Certainly take more time than just clicking a button and having a look. As for bandwidth, really? If you have that slow a connection or measly an allowance you ought not to be buying a PC. Half the time when specs are copied in it's all bunched up with no paragraphs so you can't read it.

I've on occasion (in the past mind), pulled up one or two OP,'s on account of some of their Deal's Posted via a similar 'method' also ...

Only to have similar comments to some of the above cast forward too, hehehe.

I also appreciate a Deal that laid out in 'certain ways' too, to be honest with you? - and when I myself have slipped' via my own Deal's, I've in turn ALWAYS appreciated being pulled on it too (even going as far as thanking the culprit that exposed me via that way, hehehehe), which may I add, is more then some on here have also been prepared to do in like manner or whatever (when also exposed in a similar vain ... )

It's all good though. :-)

But in all fairness to the OP, number one, they are new. :-)

And number two, they took next to know time in bouncing forth with a notable Deal of their own (as in, shortly after they joined up themselves, etc?). :-)

So props also to both there too I reckon?. :-)

The way I see it (hopefully I'm assuming), is this, over the course of time, the OP will learn forth the art of certain HUKD formalities and such like anyway?, hehehe, so it's cool.

May the force be with you. :-D

Repetition for emphasis no doubt?, lol.
I was only looking at this Laptop last week, lol.

I almost bought this at either the backend of December last Year, or the beginning of January this Year (if not for the fact that I'd already bought a similar Lenovo Tablet/Laptop hybrid earlier in 2017 itself).

The SSD was a little limiting too mind, but it's nothing for some that an external hard drive wouldn't/couldn't fix, etc?.

As a Tablet, you'll never get specs like this, ever, lol.

But as a Laptop, that may prove a bit different (bit again, all that purely comes down to one's individual needs - be it for now, and/or in the future?).

But it's decent still. :-)
As it's a touchscreen, would it be suitable for basic picture editing with a stylus/pen?

You want something that's 10 point multi-touch for that. Probably surface, or pixelbook.
Helped my sister-in-law pick this up in the January sales. Lovely device! She runs her own business and works in Photoshop on this with no issues. RAM is easy upgradable, the SSD is an M.2 but it also has a caddy for a 2.5" (7mm max thickness) HDD/SSD - We popped an 8GB RAM stick in with a 1TB storage drive and it's been a treat! No complaints. The touchscreen supports active pens so you can draw directly into supported apps with pressure sensitivity, but it does not come with it even though the display model in the store had one on a little holder.. You also get a fingerprint sensor for Windows Hello on this model which was a nice bonus!

Yup! But you need to buy an active stylus separately. Lenovo do one, I think it's sold on Amazon? But check the product information on PC World as it tells you the name.

Thanks for the information. Could you please how much did you pay for the 8GB RAM and for the 1TB drive? And where did you buy it? Thanks again!
Good piece . I bought one last week. Same speck’s on black £499. Is fast for easy tasking 5 hours on battery life on constant use. Worth the money. If you need extra ram plenty to chose from .8)

I didn't buy them, my sister-in-law so don't know exact change but the HDD was just under £40 and the stick of RAM just over £60. Both from Amazon.

How much did you pay for this in the January sales?.

As this particular Lenovo Yoga Laptop has been yo-yoing back and forth at this price (give or take £20 either end).

(As did a different version of this Lenovo Yoga Laptop I bought last year did too ... )

So far they appear to have held their price well.

Bought one on Monday, replaced my old Samsung series Chromebook, for my needs it's fine, browsing, office and edited my first video last night, only 1080p mind, battery lasts a good few hours, screen is HD and sharp, has hung once or twice with premier Pro but other than that I'm happy

This comment of yours tickled me: "edited my first video last night, only 1080p mind".

Which Chromebook were you formally using that allowed you to edit any video's in the first place? (be it via Adobe Premiere Pro, or otherwise?), hehehehe. :-D

So video editing at 1080p is fine. ;-)
