  • Hey OP, are you able to comment on the thermal behaviors for this laptop? Does it operate at high temps and overheat?

    • You really think he's going to comment negatively on it?

    • Most Ultrabooks run pretty hot at idle and close to thermal thresholds under full load; nothing unusual about that behaviour (I've seen dozens of Ultrabooks across all major OEMs with very similar thermal performance) and it's a pretty problem to solve given the incredibly small form factors and lack of adequate cooling.

      • Oh ok thanks.

        Yeh my Dell Vostro 5490 idles at 60 degrees and reaches 100 degrees during load. Is that normal?? I did not know the Vostro 5490 was classified as an ultrabook.

        My previous laptop HP Elitebook G3 runs didn't have this issue so I thought my Dell is faulty.

        • Yeh my Dell Vostro 5490 idles at 60 degrees and reaches 100 degrees during load. Is that normal??

          Yeah that sounds fairly typical, if it's anything like the Dell XPS 13s I'm using at the moment, it'll only stay at those temperatures for short bursts while in full CPU performance mode before it's throttled by the firmware. The thermal threshold (or Tjunction) for the CPUs found in most Ultrabooks is around 100-110C but they can stay at those temperatures for brief periods before a thermal shutdown happens and Ultrabooks are fairly good at self-regulating the balance between power/thermals/performance.

          • @Amar89: Throttling means weakening the CPU so it can cool down correct?

            If that's the case, what is the point of having a high powered CPU when you can only use its full power for only a brief moment?

            • @Homr: Correct.

              All laptops throttle their CPUs, even very high-end gaming laptops with much better cooling. It's physically impossible for most laptops (except for the most premium gaming laptops) on the market to run in full CPU (and GPU) performance mode non-stop without either overheating or the battery/power circuitry being unable to cope with the power consumption. At best, most laptops can manage running at 70-80% performance mode non-stop.

              You don't, or you shouldn't, buy Ultrabooks for performance. They're for on-the-go computing where you need something as light, thin and portable as possible and the premium price tag attached to most of them is completely wasted on an Ultrabook if performance is your key concern; you could have a very capable gaming laptop for this price that wouldn't need to throttle the CPU constantly and would run much cooler.

              • @Amar89: Oh damn, maybe I made the wrong purchase.

                My new vostro is hooked up to 2 external monitors 24/7 for work. I bought the laptop to save space. Should I return it? I got the vostro for $859

                or should I invest in a cooling pad?

            • @Homr: nowadays cpu is limited by thermals and power package

        • say again? 100 degree??????? celcius?

  • Hi Op, just quick question, which model has touch screen. Thanks

    Just some thoughts for people thinking about it .. this is still the 14nm(++whatever) tech instead of newer more power efficient chips.

    The RAM is listed as soldered, I wonder and hope that it's possible to add an additional memory stick?

    I had a quick look at lenovo au, much more expensive. https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-yoga/...

    Then I have a look at lenovo US and they have a ripper of a deal at the moment on the one in column 4 - from $3.4k(US) down to $1.5k(US) .. so that's 55% off - it's the same i7 chip as the top one here, but has 4k screen instead of WQHD which is probably better at 14" as you can simply double all the resolution, and double the RAM (16) and SSD (512).

    So if you can be bothered to go through as US shipping forwarder, that seems like a super deal which works out to around $2,150 AUD plus the shipping forwarder so similar price for a significantly superior model of this laptop, with the same gen of tech.

    I think lenovo does a worldwide warranty but you would have to do your research to be sure .. here's a starting point .. https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/au/en/solutions/pd004172

  • What the heck is the I7 only coming with 8Gb ram, what an awful config (considering the other premium specs)?

  • Yoga X1 G4 i5 16GB FHD 20SA0013AU is $1929
    Yoga X1 G4 i7 8GB QHD 20SA0017AU is $1979
    or
    Yoga X1 G4 i7 16GB 512 WWAN QHD 20SA0018AU $2599

    including shipping at Lenovo Edu store

    • I also don't understand why resellers bother with selling Lenovo or HP as it's always cheaper to get those brands directly via various affiliation programs.

  • Lenovo product lines are so complicated to understand … my head starts spinning.

  • In 2010, I bought an ASUS laptop with an i7 and 8GB RAM for ~$2399.
    In 2020, $2299 will get you an i7 with 8GB RAM.
