    Love the older lenovo yogas that had both power and portability. And these new ones are nice, but (and this is a massive but) we need a dedicated GPU in these that isnt a joke. Looking at you 130M and 150M. Why cant we get a 2 in 1 laptop that has upgradeable storage and ram with a gtx 1050 ti. At the minimum.

    I decided to give them a try with the 6th Gen and with HDR screen. It doesnt live up to the hype even with max specs. I bought my t450s with hot swappable battery tops specs and is this better than this one. The key travel on the previous gen was just horrible and let us not start with fan noise or battery life…

    Upgrade and repair ability? why does no one bring that up when reviewing laptops, it's why a won't buy an Apple or Microsoft surface, I want to order a new battery or upgrade the ram or SSD myself without sending the computer to the other side of the country just to get hosed for a simple task. I'm looking at ordering a Thinkpad but still trying to decide which is the best choice for me

    Does he really need to read from that piece of paper? It’s not that he jotted down notes on his speech about quantum physics… Jesus Christ!

    I guess I'll have to read the review, since honestly I don't understand what's so special about this laptop. Not the most powerful or the thinnest/lightest, and certainly not aesthetically pleasing. And for that price?

    "…IBM, oh sorry, Lenovo…" sounds very political to me. Do you know Lenovo charges their own countrymen much higher prices than they do in the US for the same products?

    Guys! Why didn't you mention the huge improvement on the Yoga I just noticed: the inset keyboard!!!! AHHHH now there is no downside to the Yoga.

    Do the keys sink into the laptop like the previous generation?

    Guaranteed to be slow one year from time of purchase

    I bought X1 carbon gen 6, It is a terrible design really. You can check it yourself. If you use Ethernet gen2 cable which comes by laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad Ethernet Extension Adapter Gen 2) in order to connect the normal Ethernet cable to the laptop, you cannot use USB-C that is located beside that as these ports are too close to each other and the design of the extension cable is too silly and thick that prevents you have two ports in the same time!

    I'm hoping someday they will provide a version with no knob and touchpad buttons.

    Hope it doesn't break. Because then you'll have to cope with the Lenovo service, where politeness meets attempts to avoid repairing at their expense.

    Congrats! Successfully killed the series. I'd rather choose even the first generation than this fancy toy laptop. Who the hell told you, that thikpad users want that childish ridiculous carbon pattern top. And speaking of the Yoga its the worst joke ever, shiny aluminium… Thanks Lenovo that i can finally discover other brands!

    Since when x model had yoga version, I bought Yoga 370 because x model didn’t had Yoga back than.
