    Dual Core CPU otherwise would have been a great deal

    •  

      It is 1.3kg and 9 hour battery. Needs an efficient CPU!
      Has 4 virtual cores, with does help multi-thread performance.

      • +1 vote

        While single core performance is behind to the 8th gen by about 20%. Overall performance is behind by a whooping 40%. All these with the same tpd.

        It's an underpowered cpu at this price point.

        •  

          The form factor is what bumps the price up.

          You can buy an e580 for the same cost with a better CPU. However, it's twice as heavy.

        •  

          Yes, good, point, there certainly was a big performance jump in the 8th gen. This is older, hence the price.

          Where can you find an 8th gen in this form factor for anywhere near this price?

          The Yoga 730 i5 is great, but 60% higher price and only FHD.

        Nine hours is about normal, not sure why you're bringing it up …

    •  

      Tempted, except for:
      * The newer models have USB-C charging.
      * Suspect that this would support a pen, however unlike some other models the pen holder connects into a USB port.

      Looking at an L380 Yoga looks to be my favourite at the moment.

      Couple of reviews are good. One feedback was for a faulty one and one was someone leaving a feedback stating for the high price, it didnt have enough ports. Now that the price has come down, I feel it's good enough value for the inclusions.

    I have this laptop with the 4K screen since I think October 2015. Over three years, apart form the charging cable requiring replacement, I have not come across any issues. The batter life is absolute amazing, I still get more than 5-6 hours of usage after 3 years, it is comparable to my partners Macbook pro. Power wise, I don't think i need anything more powerful, I do not do a lot of graphich intensie stuff. I have tried playing games sometimes off steam, I could manage to play Supreme Commander 4 player vs 4 CPU with some lag.
    Overall great laptop - light and portable and its so thin.

      Looks ok if you need a new tablet at a reasonable price but doesn't appear to be that much better than my Samsung Tab A 10 (SM-T580) to justify me buying as an upgrade.

      •  

        Tab A 10 has less screen resolution, no way Tab A is better but price almost is halved.

      • +1 vote

        The Tab A 10 is heavier with a worse screen and lower storage amount. The main advantage of the Tab A 10 over this is the more recent software updates.

        •  

          Who's saying the Tab A is better? You guys obviously didn't pick up on the fact that I already have the Tab A. What I basically said is that the S2 is better, but the differences are not sufficient enough for me to justify buying the S2 as well. I was tempted but I have a Tab A 8 (wifi & cellular, pre-order freebie with Note 8 phone) as well as the Tab A 10 and getting a third tablet that is already a couple of generations old is pretty difficult for me to justify. If it was S3 then the greater improvements would probably have me jumping on it.

      i bought an S2 for roughly $550 in 2015.. i just use it for uni. battery life isnt the best, but its pretty snappy and the display is awesome.

      That is silly to discriminate like that. This is way better than an 8GB 256GB Core i5 which costs ~$900

      •  

        Absolute nonsense, even an i5-8250u performs better than the i7 in this from three years ago. Temps are better, battery life better, quad-core vs dual-core, there's almost no comparison.

          He is not comparing CPU, but the whole laptop at same price-point.

          •  

            @manic: Right, and I’m saying I would not be purchasing a laptop that is 3 years old for $900. Worse CPU, half the cores, worse battery life, all just to have more RAM and SSD, you can purchase laptops with i5-8250u and expand the RAM and SSD and you will be very close to that $900 figure.

            “This is way better” he says, it’s worse in many ways besides RAM and SSD size.

            •  

              @Chewiebacca: Not everyone cares about a new CPU that can process things fractions of a second faster. To many people the form factor and 3200x1800 flip screen are for more useful than a latest gen CPU. For $900 it's a solid buy for many people.

              •  

                @rancho: "A fraction of a second faster", you should refrain from commenting if you don't know what you're talking about, it doesn't help anybody.

                Sure, I'd agree with you if it was a year old, but that's a 6th generation CPU and we are on the 9th, especially when it means a dual-core CPU over a quad, and powering that resolution screen, it literally will become frustrating to use very soon.

                •  

                  @Chewiebacca: Don't be smug, I very much know what I'm talking about, especially considering I have a very similarly spec'd Asus UX360C.

                  For what I use it, which is internet, office, media watching and Lightroom when travelling; it's a perfectly usable laptop. Would a $2000+ laptop, with 9th gen CPU, be far quicker? Not enough to warrant the significantly higher cost.

                  Just because you care more about CPU doesn't mean everyone else does, and it doesn't help anybody for you to act like an authority on the subject and rubbish everyone else's opinion.

                  •  

                    @rancho: Indicate where I said to buy a $2000+ laptop? Where did I say to purchase a laptop with a 9th gen CPU? Where did I say that a laptop with a 6th gen processor would not be usable?

                    All I stated is my opinion that I would not be purchasing a laptop for $900 with a 3+ year old CPU today, and my point remains, I don't believe it to be worth the money, and then highlighted that last generations i5-8250u laptops would be a better purchase in my opinion. The literal comparison brought by a replier that:

                    This is way better than an 8GB 256GB Core i5 which costs ~$900

                    is pretty much proven wrong by your exact light use case of

                    internet, office, media watching and Lightroom when travelling

                    Having a much more current CPU that offers more processing power, double the cores (literally correlates to a more potent machine for longer), better battery life (travelling), lower heat etc, the i5-8250u machine would be the smarter buy. Ultimately RAM and SSD are expandable in many laptops anyway, again, if you knew what machine to look for (something upgradeable in this case).

                    I care about good value for money, buying a 2016 machine in 2019 in my opinion does not represent good value for money, especially when it's just under a $1000, which is a solid budget for something much more current.

                    The only opinion I've "rubbished" is yours because you've so nonchalantly tossed aside my opinion that a CPU with double the cores, better battery life, poorer single-core performance, worse internal graphics (I could go on) is simply "a fraction of a second faster", and arguing that the CPU is something that people shouldn't care so much about when purchasing computer, which is just ridiculous.

                    This "deal" is already over, not that I thought it was a deal to begin with anyway. I'm glad you are enjoying your laptop, these specs are great from 2016 and you evidence the point that it's worth buying something with a good current CPU since it will serve you well for a few years, it's not such a good deal buying it 3 years past its release date, and that's still my opinion.

    How's the S2 compare to the Tab A 10.5 for the same price?

    •  

      The S2 is lighter, with a better screen. However you will be stuck with old software (though there is a custom rom)

    • +1 vote

      S2 is much thinner and lighter, with better CPU and more premium feel. Also S2 screen is 4:3 vs 16:9 on Tab A, depends which shape you prefer. 16:9 is better if you are watching a lot of videos.

    •  

      A series is always inferior to s

      •  

        But ageing S series vs new A series the differences aren't as great. S2 is almost 3 years old so compared to new Tab A (March 2019) there are pluses and minuses i.e. not as clear cut. However at this price the S2 is probably still a good option over a new (full priced) 2019 Tab A

    • +1 vote

      I bought the S2 last week, was in the market for a budget tab and chose S2.

      It looks better (subjective), lighter, higher res BUT it has older software updates & doesn't work with the newer accessories like the dock.

      In the end it's up to your preference but it's a really solid tablet if all you do is surf the net and/or want some multimedia capability. Can't go wrong for $300.

    Specs are great for office or school use (ie not producing video, playing games etc). Only real world thing that really has improved in new CPU generations is battery life. If ~6hrs is enough for you, amazing deal.

    Does the S2 support an S-Pen?

  • +20 votes

    I have this exact lenovo yoga in orange (currently using it as we speak…er.. type).
    Used for: Bought it in early 2015 with stacked coupons/cashback for around $1900. Used mainly for work purposes - word/powerpoint/excel as well as multiple chrome tabs (I'm talking 2-3 windows with 20 odd tabs each) for research and multitasking, and sometimes in side-by-side mode. Also used it as a PDF reader in the tablet mode while sitting on the couch, as well as taking notes during tutorials/lectures using OneNote.

    Portability/Battery: As for portability and battery - it's been phenomenal! I take it in my bag wherever I go because it's so light and slick. Even when flying on budget airlines where they're more fussy about weight restrictions, this does well to make it easy to stay within the 7kg or so.

    Batter life is easily 6-7 hours during constant internet heavy use. Wifi and bluetooth work perfectly (using my Bose QC35 to study). Charger is relatively compact - it's much smaller than the bricks of earlier laptops. And the power slot is a modified USB port so when you're not charging you can use it as an extra port. Only thing with the charger is it sits high and close over the top of the outlet, meaning it's hard to turn the switch on/off when it's plugged in. So I just turn it on before plugging in instead.

    Trackpad: Trackpad is mediocre, but has improved with some firmware updates and it perfectly usable. Just don't expect it to be like a macbook.

    Chassis/Build: Finally, the chassis itself is sturdy and unlike the Surface Book doesn't feel like you're going to break it by squeezing it into a tight bag. Having said that, one of the pin covers of the hinge mechanism came off about 6 months in but it makes no functional difference to the laptop and you barely notice it. I've even dropped it (in Dubai airport while rushing through security) - landed square on the corner opposite the hinge, I presume a relatively weak part of the machine. The paintwork and metal/plastic were ever-so-slightly dented but no change in the screen itself which I think isn't too bad after a ~1.5m drop onto tiles.
    As far as gaming is concerned - haven't done a lot on my laptop but suffice to say it runs dota2 bots/online easily in 1080p and high settings.

    Faults: Overall it's been a fantastic machine, the ONLY hitch I've had with it is occassionally (occurred <10 times in the last 4 years) after opening up the laptop from sleep, it refuses to turn on with the power button and it just flashes. But it's an easy fix - just hold the button for 15 seconds to power down and it stops flashing, then turn it back on normally and it works just fine. Only causes a 45 second or so delay so it's not that big a deal. It seems it's a known problem but it honestly doesn't bother me that much.

    Verdict: I guess that's all I can think of. Personally, i think, if you're looking for an extremely portable laptop that will manage any regular work/uni related jobs, then this is a great laptop for the price!

    Hope that helps!

      We must be twins because I brought the same one back in the day and can't really fault the laptop for a ultrabook purpose.

      2-3 years down the track mines still going strong, all i've had the replace is the power cable due to me bending it too much which was $20 off ebay

      I use it more movie use alot too, the 'black' isnt the best with some backlight bleed
