I've had a few of these and fan noise has been bad on all of them. For light web browsing, the fans come on and off about every 20 every seconds. They kick on at a high volume and have a slight whine to them. I even opened it up and replaced the thermal paste (as some have recommended for other laptops with similar issues). That didn't help.

I'm pretty sensitive to certain frequencies, so YMMV.

There are actually two fans, even though there isn't a dedicated GPU. On two models I had, one fan had a lot more whine to it than the other (quickly stopped them with the bottom off), so it might be possible to get one that doesn't have the irritating whine to it. According to HW Monitor, the fans are coming on even when in the 40-50 degree range and they are decently loud, even at those low temps.

Only thing that has helped is to limit the CPU to 80% and install Notebook Fan Control and select Yoga 2 13 (apparently works for this model and doesn't kick the fans on till in the 50s).

I decided I'm going to return today and spend the extra money on the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro. From what I've heard, it's remarkably quiet.

Other than the fan noise, it's pretty nice overall. I really like the feeling of the touchpad. Physically, it is the smoothest I've felt, although some might prefer some more resistance. Screen is colorful and bright enough for most indoor use. Boot time and wake from sleep are extremely fast. Keyboard keys require too much pressure for my liking.

If you can tolerate the fan noise or find one that isn't too bad, it's a pretty great laptop otherwise. Hope this helps.

Edit: I've also updated the BIOS to the latest version. Seemed to help a little bit, but it's still pretty bad.

The memory is soldered on the 13.5" model, so cannot be upgraded. I literally just bought this laptop last night and came across this deal this morning... sigh.

Yea saw the same but saw Lenovo commented about a bios update. Does anyone actually have this laptop with the update? Is the fan noise crazy? I'm probably going to buy this regardless but just curious if it ends up bothering me
