Update - a further £100 reduction to £749!

By far the cheapest for any of the QHD+ Yoga Pro 2 models, i5 or i7 - the only change from the full fat i7 model is 128GB rather than 256GB SSD.

The next best is via Allgain at £919 for the 256GB one, but you run the risk of getting a US model - they import other ultrabooks like the Samsung Ativ Book 9.

Other than there it's around £1100 - 1200 at other shops.

wow.. very nice. heat from me

Great price, if only it would have been available earlier. I would have gone for this but got an X1 Carbon instead.

Just laughing here - seconds after I've posted it and it gets loads of cold votes, yet no-one has said where it can be bought cheaper.

I wouldn't worry about it, my own X1 deal went colder than South Pole in winter

I personally rate this much higher than Yoga 3, keyboard is better (not so shallow and lower down) and this i7 is a lot more powerful than the Core M - graphics could be better but hey...

Its a lot of computer for the money but 128gb is not going to hold much QHD video or pictures. By the time you have the OS, a hidden backup partition and some software like office you are not going to have much space left.

is it a standard ssd? ie upgradeable?

mSATA, will be upgradable but they are difficult to get into and will void the warranty. Much easier just to put in a fast SD card, I am able to save and run games off the SD.

I'm not gonna vote hot or cold but £850 on a laptop. Hell No.
You can get a really good gaming PC for that price.

But probably find it difficult carting the gaming PC around for work. I think you're missing the point here!

If it's for work..you don't need an i7, 8GB ram do you? A £200-400 laptop would work

It's not particularly targeted as a media consumption device, given the i7 and extra memory! I'll be using it for work in IT where having a massive screen area is essential for the multitude of apps I have active at any one time - browsers, office stuff sure but terminal consoles and VMs, and it has to be portable rather than a desktop with 3 monitors. As someone else posted, the SD card route is likely to be used for keeping me entertained on the train home.

One of the first things I'll be doing is recovering that recovery partitiion

Personally I would want a larger screen for multiple windows over a higher res one but I guess portability is more essential and if its going to be tiny text then the higher res helps

I have the thinkpad yoga 2 i7 this is pretty good value and would have gone for this myself except it doesn't come with an active touchscreen and there used to be some issue with the qhd screen but that was common across a few manufacturers who used the same screen....

It's not going to be tiny text as you're supposed to use it at 200% (aka 192 dpi) not 100%. Finally we're getting high density screens on laptops not just on phones and tablets. I use a tablet at 200% (Windows) as well as an X1 laptop (naturally Windows) with no problems. The sharpness is incredible and just about all new programs can deal with the increased density.

you might want to amend the post it is now at £749 !!!

Just ordered mine

Do JL do any retrospective price matches with themselves? Like I got mine 4 days ago, I could buy another and return the original (unopened) but it would be easier if they just refunded £100.

Yeah, may or may not be able to do this through their web site but I've previously just given them a bell and they've refunded no problems (up to 28 days later I think).

Just recieved mine, initial impressions... not too impressed. There is a significant amount of yellow 'screen bleed' from the bottom of the screen when the screen is dark. It's especially noticeable when booting up on the Lenovo screen. I'm gonna send mine back, but from looking around sounds like a common issue with this type of Lenovo screen.

Price has also gone up £100 now.

If the issue is the colours, check it has the latest firmware applied + power manager driver fix - since the screen is not RGB it has to be "adjusted" though the right screen colour profile should fix that also.

But actual bleed naturally cannot be fixed but at least you'll then get "white bleed" rather than "yellow bleed"
