    Akhh I wish it was a yoga which folds and has a touchscreen.
    But still an excellent deal though!

    • +3

      Or if it was an X1 Carbon it'd be even better.

    • +5

      or a Lenovo Legion Pro 3070 would be even better.

      • +2

        Or if it was a HP Spectre X360 would be even better.

    Reviews aren't good on both sites, will let it go.,

    • +16

      This is lenovo consumer line, so I don't expect too much, but also these reviews don't mean too much
      - 1 star because they only got 7mo warranty (not legal is Australia. No idea what happened)
      - 2 stars because it bends (it's thin!) battery life got worse after 2mo (did they install something in the bkg?) and screws come loose.
      - 1 star because the speakers broke twice. Either a design defect or they store it badly.

      There aren't a lot of red-flag reviews; horrible screen, shocking battery life, breaking hinges, crap keyboard, thermal issues, etc.

      I mean this thing could still be a lemon haha. Just wouldn't go entirely on those reviews.

      • Bending sounds like a genuine problem if it bends too easily.

    Looks like non touchscreen version of Lenovo Yoga C740

    • +1

      Ooo perfect. I need a less powerful but touchscreen version, and that's exactly it. Much appreciated ^.^

  • No expert. How does this compare. New school telling us this is what we need: Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 2 - 13.3" Touch, Core i5, 8GB, 256GB

    • +1

      This will do the job fine, battery life and built quality might be on the effy side though. No touch screen as well, depends on if your kid likes to smudge their screens :)

    • +1

      Would depend if the school has apps/stuff that need touch screen support. That's probably the biggest hard yes/no feature.

      For school use, where kids typically trash these things, the slightly more durable think pad may work better….or maybe the cheaper one is better for when it breaks haha.

    • +1

      This spec is better. i7 rather than i5, more RAM and twice as big SSD.
      Dunno how important the touch screen really is though - my offspring uses a drawing tablet plugged in to the side port on those extremely rare occasions that there is a need to annotate a screen. Their spec was touch screen, but meh.
      My 2 holdbacks (which are not major) with this model that stop me buying it for other offspring are the battery life (maybe too low at around 6.5 hrs according to 1 test) and lack of any USB A ports.
      Otherwise, I reckon this is a good package and from bricks and mortar store.

        (maybe too low at around 6.5 hrs according to 1 test)

        6.5hrs of battery life should get through the school day, at most 5 periods, 1hr each. Obviously depends what apps are being run, but it should be fine.

      • i5-1135G7 is much more powerful than i7-10510U.

    • Cheers team

    • Stupid school.

      Iā€™m guessing a private school.

      Regardless, all schools should be using chrome books IMO and set a chrome book as min spec for a student laptop.

      Easy set up, very hard to lose student work.

      Only particular year 9/10 electives and particular year 11/12 subjects need something more powerful.

    Great laptop for the price. Someone will inevitably come in and complains about nits or sRGB or mercury being in retrograde, but for $850 you're getting a nice form factor with 16GB RAM and an i7-10510U and 2 Thunderbolt ports.

    More than good enough for any standard office or school work.

    • Absolutely agree with this

  • any good deal for Chromebook. Need one for school.

  • What's the major differences between this and the Dell G15 5515?

    • +4

      You're not carrying a brick with this one and it's targeted at a different audience. If you want to play games on a budget go get the Dell. If you want something for general use, school or planning on carrying it around then get this as it's smaller and lighter.

    • yes, 15inch vs 14inch

  • Looking for suggestions please - bought a $800 Lenovo laptop from HN and arrived in a plastic envelope in a layer of thin bubble wrap, with the corner of the cardboard box smashed in. Only has a SSD hard drive, should I return it?

    • +2

      I wouldn't worry about the cardboard box itself having a bit of damage unless the laptop itself had physical damage. You'll find that the manufacturer puts foam and stuff inside to keep it in place. The SSD wouldn't be harmed by a fall like a HDD would.

      • K, thanks for advice

      • Just worried that it's more than cardboard damage, the box must have been dropped hard to smash in the corner of the box.

  • +1

    Oh I was excited when I saw this and with 16gb of ram. However when did Yoga's stop being laptops that fold all the way around. :( Next.

    • +1

      The previous version (with 8th gen) was the first non-2-in-one. In the US it's an IdeaPad.
      I don't know why they didn't call it that everywhere. My guess is someone in marketing trying to justify their existence.

  • can people really live with type c only

    no hdmi no type a

    • +2

      The USB-C Thunderbolt ports in this does HDMI, USB-A and a whole lot more. You could even run a video card off it with an enclosure.

  • +1

    I cannot see the discounted price.
    Is the deal over ?

  • +1

    Ah, damn missed out. My old Toshiba is on last legs I think. Surviving nearly 9 years!

  • Mine arrived today. Touchpad was not working. Opened and it up and reseated the touchpad's ribbon cable. All good so far.

  • JB told me mine is on back order. Has anyone received the item?
