Terrible specs for the price.

Thanks for the reply, can you recommend something else as I'm currently on the lookout

What's your budget, and what are you looking to use it for?

What's your budget, and what are you looking to use it for?



Around £500, could stretch a bit if it's worth it.

Mainly some office work, a bit of media and browsing and some very light photo editing.

Would like it to be as compact and lightweight as possible and would like a touch screen but it's not essential.

I was looking at the Asus UX305 too.

But its a much classier looking laptop than others at this price, that may well suit people, similar to a 6th gen i3 processor. I would guess you can put a bigger hard drive in it, but you may not be able to increase the memory.

Doubtless you can get more bang per buck elsewhere if the measure is pure performance. On the other hand, the Lenovo is more than capable of meeting your computing requirements and has other merits worthy of consideration, for example, an exceptional screen, light weight and above average battery life. Add in the superior design and build quality, then it has a lot to offer. The constant source of pleasure derived from owning a device that is pleasing to look at and handle (even when switched off) should not be discounted. Just saying...
Considering the slim form factor and 1440p screen I think it's a reasonable deal.
Thanks all for your replies. My current laptop has an i3 2310m and that still works for me, just the poor battery life and size of the thing is a bit annoying so need something newer.

Don't need fantastic performance and this looks nice compared to many I've looked at in PC World for similar money.

Will have a read of some reviews but am open to suggestions if anyone has any ideas.

Cheers all

Considering the Xiaomi air 12 is £373 from China with a similar spec, the Yoga is a good price. Not seen anything similar for the price/style.

No idea as you haven't stated anything at all about it!
Seems a lot for a yoga mat though.

i have this and think its awesome - i knew you get better spec for the money but build quailty is awesome and battery lasts forever
Shame you can only upgrade the storage and not the memory. Lovely computer
Why is this cold? its almost half the retail price. If that isnt a hot deal, then what is?

@2003bluecat, for your use case this should be perfect. The core M processor in this is pretty much designed for office, media consumption and lightweight tasks. This laptop also has one of the largest battery of any core M device, at 54whr, so battery life should be around 9-10 hours for normal web, youtube use. It's thin, light and also comes with a wacom digitizer; if you want to get your art on, take notes etc..

WHAT? have Lenovo developed the perpetual motion device? How did they overcome the first and second laws of thermodynamics? **winks**

As to this being expensive for the specs, Apple have been doing that for years, nothing new in the IT industry...

This is an amazing deal. Think of it as an M3 SP4 and the price makes more sense. Build quality and refinement / portability are commensurate with the original RRP nearer £1000.

The "poor specs for the money" brigade are never going to pleased with these sort of devices; They may be happy lugging around 2kg £400 plastic core-I5 laptops with "great specs" but I'm not.

I've got the m7 version and it's absolutely fantastic. Blows my previous Surface out of the water in every single way. Battery life is immense.

I agree
Thanks for all you input everyone, I went with it the end and really like it, seems to fit my needs well. The battery life is excellent, although it's not too difficult to improve on my 7 year old Sony laptop.Build quality is decent too for a laptop so thin.
