Searched and didn't see this specific one listed. I've been watching 2-in-1s for a while since I broke mine last month, and this looked like a pretty good deal given the hardware that you get. Mine shows up on Friday. Local stock in DFW TX area went belly up while I was ordering yesterday, but it's still available for shipping.

Price breakdown: $849.99 - $150 student coupon - $10 Visa checkout = $689.99 + tax

Lenovo Yoga 710 2-in-1

360 degree flip design: laptop, tablet, tent, stand, toilet
Aluminum chassis, black color
15.6" 10 point capacitative touch screen, 1920x1080
i7-6500U CPU (2.5 GHz Skylake, 4MB cache, 2 core 4 thread)
16GB DDR4 RAM
256GB SSD
nVidia GeForce 940MX graphics (2GB DDR3 onboard)
Ports: 2x USB3, micro HDMI, full size SD, audio (headphone/mic combo)
Dual band wifi: B A G N AC
720p webcam with dual microphones

Coupon worked great for me, $760 after tax. Had to use a Mastercard so I couldn't get the Visa discount on this.

Pulled the trigger on the i5 14" yesterday for Geek Squad cert open box for $415 base. Not in the market for a biggin or this would be great.

Picked up this laptop with this same deal 2 weeks ago, great laptop especially if you travel and work. Battery life has been more like 6 hrs.

I was thinking of returning this though and getting the HP Pavilion deal that's going on, the i7 6500u this laptop comes with is dual core, the HP has the quad core i7 6700HQ plus the 4gb GeForce 960m, you can get that one for $810 or so and it's only about 1 inch thick and weights a pound more than this one.

The laptop is so so. I loved the weight and the overall feeling but had two major issues with it.
The fan runs constantly regardless of the program and the screen is usable only on the highest brightness. If you decrease the brightness even a little it was too dim for me. I do not know if Lenovo uses inferior screens for their Best Buy specific laptops.

Got this on monday open box. had a problem with the trackpad clicking and moving by itself, giving back today. otherwise seems like a decent deal, though i'd rather the similar i5 with 8gb for 450 they had on sale a few weeks ago...

From what I could see, most everything else current generation at this price will either have no touch or 2-in-1 capability, or have the convertible configuration but less RAM and no extra graphics core.

That one? That's an awesome deal too, but not quite the same class of laptop. If I wanted a dedicated gaming laptop I'd get that HP for sure. I got the 2-in-1 because I travel a lot and wanted something more convenient to use on the plane, plus the touch screen is nice for casual web browsing and Android emulation. The one in this deal is almost too large- I wanted the 14" screen with the 13x8 footprint- but this deal was too good to pass up. That HP is one inch larger in both length and width than even this Lenovo.

Oh, friend got the Lenovo Y700 15.6" two weeks ago from Adorama. $800, but 16GB, 128GB SSD + 1TB spinner, 950MX with 4GB DDR5. I think that was probably an even better deal than the HP.

Everyone seems to complain about the screen brightness- but I saw the same for the Dell 13.3 2-in-1 that I broke last month- and I was OK with that screen. I like bright screens, so who knows? I don't use my laptops out in the sun. I guess I'll see if I can find a light intensity meter somewhere around the office.

Thanks! I'll watch for that trackpad issue. I'm pissed that I missed the 14" Yoga 710 with the 8GB and i5 for $550 a month back. Frown

the laptop overall is great especially for travel. that was the main reason I bough it, I work on the road with my laptop and I needed an upgrade from my previous Thinkpad. I was thinking of the HP for the extra horsepower but decided against it as it would be a bit more inconvenient to travel with. eventually I'll give this one over to my S/O.

Overall if your goal is to travel and work with this, great laptop as thin laptops cannot dissipate the heat produced by quad core efficiently yet, hence why you don't see too many thin laptops with the i7 HQ but this one does the job.

I picked up two models from this line a few weeks ago, and they are good. I got the i5 version, but most of the rest of the specs are the same. Very fast, screen is beautiful, lightweight, all good things.

The biggest problem (and it is pretty big) is the placement of the right shift key. It is on the far side of the up arrow. The placement is ridiculous and feels very unnatural. It's a very silly design flaw on an otherwise great machine.

I bought the non-dedicated graphics version for $100 less (also I think it had 8GB instead of 16GB).

Is this worth the upgrade ?

I have the 710 with onboard graphics and don't even notice the fan, meaning it's complete silent when I use it; either the fan is not running or it's spinning very quietly. I keep it at 50% brightness indoors and the screen looks fine. It doesn't get moved around much since it's used as a bedside rig. Only thing that bothers me is the right shift key, but I don't do much typing on it.
