Not with OLED at this price... The screen really is the draw here, an absolute beauty. Battery life is mediocre thought.

That only has a core i5... And does NOT have a beautiful, vibrant, vivid OLED screen, however...

Weird times when even a MacBook offers a better value than this with an actual quadcore and dgpu at a lower price.

Truth is that the only selling point, the oled panel, isn't even that good. Certainly a far cry from mobile counterparts where there's a massive quality gap between oled and ips. This oled panel features eye cancer low pwm refresh and shitty color gamut for the price. It tries hard to reel in the not so technically inclined with "muh oled" without looking at actual hard numbers.

What do you do with a 14" OLED screen on a laptop with specs designed for office use...such as spreadsheets? This lacks the graphic horsepower for any real graphic design or gaming? Seems like a waste of an OLED screen.

The 15" Pro is almost 2 lbs heavier and, worse, has an integrated SSD. So, if the MB (e.g. RAM, capacitors, whatever) goes you're totally screwed. You lose it all (computer and data) GG AppleLMAOlaugh out loudApplause

Here's the red pill, given the chance people will immediately pick the MacBook over this turd without a second thought. Causal and enthusiasts alike.

You may not like it but that's the truth.

Back to the topic at hand, I'm curious about the person who thumbed this down. Tech speak aside (Lenovo vs Apple, specifications, build, etc) for $1,714, for an OLED with a core i7 this is about $500 cheaper than the next lowest price. To put it into even more perspective, the core i5 OLED was going for $1,600 on Amazon ($600 difference from the i7).

Is this not a slick deal? Granted, not as hot as the 40 or 50% BF deal but still pretty good!

From my understanding and maybe it's changed over the years, but I always thought slickdeals was about SAVING money, getting a "slick deal," not about if this is better or worse than the competition for the price!

Yeah, I see alot of Macbooks at Starbucks and other venues where the jobless gather to write their Great American novel (or browse facebook). The X1 Yoga (and Carbon) are corporate workhorses (probably the most popular laptops in the corporate world). My wife has the earlier Carbon as her personal laptop and it's never failed her in the 3 years we've had it. You may not like it but that's the truth.
