Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Intel Core i7 8GB 256GB SSD HDD 13.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good specs for hardware. Speedy li'l machine. Ultra-portable with flexibility features (notebook, tablet, standing and tent modes...I won't use 'em--but ya never know...). I had really high hopes for this one... Lightweight, fast, portable, elegant.

Cons: Only one disappointment: WiFi does not receive 5Ghz Frequency at 40MHz bandwidth. So if you enjoy 300Mbs connectivity on your current wireless network--it ain't gonna happen with this device. Unfortunately, this is not disclosed by Lenovo in their product specifications. And since there is no Ethernet port, you are dependent upon wireless unless you get a docking station/port replicator, or some other USB Ethernet dongle...

Other Thoughts: I would not have purchased this notebook, had I known about the 802.11n WiFi deficiency. This is a real disappointment from a manufacturer like Lenovo. Yet, an Ideapad is not a Thinkpad... Remember this, business users. I will be sending this to my Mom; as I won't be able to use this in the capacity that I had hoped. I am a network engineer by trade, and being able to test and validate wireless network connectivity is important to me. I will be sticking to the TP W520 for the time being. Perhaps the Yoga 2 Pro will resolve this...???

5 out of 5 eggs G.Skill RAM Working Well on MBP 03/08/2011

This review is from: G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Memory for Apple Model FA-8500CL7D-8GBSQ

Pros: Installed the 8 GB upgrade in my MBP in less time than expected. Very easy. Notebook recognized the update immediately. No problems with running lots of apps simultaneously.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I run multiple VM's on my MBP. This helps out tremendously when switching between apps or running in "Unity" mode. Highly recommended. Next upgrade will be a SSD...
