Tempting , but the potential condition worries me

scratch and dent is also refurbished at Lenovo

Scratch & Dent


Refurbished, cosmetic blemishes, no impact to operability

Buckeyefan 1 02-19-2013 05:50 AM

IMO much more useful than the Surface Pro due to its larger screen size. The big issue with this is when you flip the keyboard over for tablet mode, you've got the keyboard facing the bottom. If you think of this in terms of ultrabooks, its hard to beat for size and specs.

Staples has this under the "Twist" name [staples.com]for as low as $650 NEW either last week or the week before. How's this a good deal?

Because the Twist is a different product than the Yoga?

The Twist is a different laptop than the Yoga.

Hellyea 02-19-2013 06:20 AM

Yes a bit different specs, 12.5" vs 13.3" , but sure go ahead and pay $800 for a refurb...

Not sure I understand your reasoning here. Basically, you were incorrect in stating that the Twist was the same as the Yoga and instead of just letting it go, you come back to say the above?

That's the same as me saying, "Sure, then why not get brand X laptop for $500 even though it has a 11" screen and different specs. . at least it's not a refurb". If you were wrong, then just man up and admit it. It's not a competition to see who has the biggest e-peen.

They make a cover to cover the keys.

Wait... How are they the same?

The Yoga just folds In to a few positions, while the Twist literally twists around 180 and folds like a convertible..., similar to the X230t.

Either you are just trolling or have a misunderstanding.

Again, go ahead and pay this inflated price if you want.

But, comparison is always a due dilligance. Ever read a router thread where people post other router deals and discuss the various pros and cons of certain models in comparison? Yeah, that's what most savvy people do.

If you are stuck on this particular laptop, and you want a refurbished one at this price, jump. If you want to step back a bit and look at your options, you'll see this isn't that great a deal at all.

I'm not trolling you idiot. Maybe I didn't state my point clearly the first time. Yes, these are not the same laptops, but largely they have the same feature set.

The screen is the main reason for the price difference. If you want 1366x768, go for it. This screen is way better.

I've spent many many hours looking for deals on this laptop, my son gave me a deadline to buy this laptop/tablet by yesterday and eventually had to buy it from Costco yesterday. after tax and shipping it came to around 1100 bucks.

Newegg/ebay/amazon all had this for 1000 (no tax/no shipping) but spent 100 more just because of Costco's good return policy and free Folio case and 1 year accidental/spill protection policy. best-buy/office-depot/Staples also has this for 1000 bucks, but without any other perks that Costco has.

the only problem with Scratch & Dent from lenova is that you never know how bad of scratch/dent it is.. particularly when you get this for your son to show-off to his friends :-)

cyrusfox 02-19-2013 09:40 AM

Twist is 1366x768, This Yoga is 1600x900,
I did a little more research and I found this on this site [notebookreview.com]
Quote:

I own both. My thoughts:

1. The Yoga has a damn nice screen (1600x900). The Lenovo Twist is (1366x768). Both IPS, which is a positive regardless of which you get.
2. The Yoga’s memory can be upgraded while the Twist cannot (soldered 4gb).
3. The Twist uses a conventional 7mm 2.5” storage drive which are more common and cheaper to upgrade than the mSATA chips.
4. The Twist has Gorilla Glass, but Lenovo has never advertised what glass the Yoga uses.
5. The keyboard is much better on the Twist (along with the trackpoint).
6. Wifi is a 2x2 antenna on the Twist, and is much better than Yoga. A lot of people reporting signal strength issues on the Yoga.
7. Yoga gets around 5 to 6 hrs when used conservatively (brightness less than 50%, power saver mode), while the Twist gets around 3.5 to 4 hrs.

I'm still debating on the practicality to replace an iPad with this......
I don't play a lot of music, do play some video, some news feed to read throughout the day, and a bunch of pdf specs or drawings that needs to be handy at all times.

Barten 02-19-2013 11:39 AM

i know you can add a 2nd hard drive, but dose anyone know if the extra bay is sata III?

Best buy has open box on these so you can check out the condition for yourself. I bought a beat up store display for 600+tax.

There was only 1 best buy near me (in 100 miles) that had it in stock. It had quite a few scratches on it as if someone had dropped it.
Here is a good review of most touch and ultrabooks [thewirecutter.com]. I think the upgradability, HDMI output, SD card slot, and a second hard drive bay makes it better than other products on the market.

Yeah mines looked like it's been dropped a bunch of times but the screen is perfect and is running fine.

If my son gave me a deadline he'd be working on a Pentium 4. :)
