Here are my impressions from the previous thread:

So mine arrived yesterday and I'm pretty impressed. It's replacing a Yoga 730 that I loved (after the display, mother board, and connecting cables were all replaced due to screen flickering) that met a horrible fate under the corner of a recliner chair. Build is sort of a beefed up version of the 730 series Yoga. The screen hinge is awesome, very smooth operation and absolutely no wiggle to the display whatsoever. The vents have been moved from the bottom to the back near the hinges, this is great as now there's no worries about them being blocked while sitting on your lap. The unit runs cooler and much quieter than the 730. No pen is included but I tried it with a Wacom Bamboo Ink with no issues. Just finished doing a clean install of Windows so I haven't had a chance to check battery life.

Looks like a good price. Was eyeing the yoga 730 which is a bit smaller and lighter though. But put off by the numerous reports of screen flickering. This looks like a much better deal.

Info from the Q&A might be useful. Another person was also saying they couldn't find the driver download support page for this unique model.

__________________________________________

Hello! Im very close to pulling the trigger on getting this laptop. But i was genuinely curious as to what material the chassis was of this laptop? And also this laptop isn't seen anywhere online and with some digging it came up as a Yoga 920. Is this laptop from overseas? Ideapad flex pro isn't even on Lenovo's website Just curious as where this laptop originated? Thank you!1 ANSWER

So would you buy this over the 730 if they were the same price? Do you notice much difference in size/weight?

I was hoping the pen was included as it was with the yoga 920. But thanks for the heads up will have to buy one so I can get using it right away!

Having owned a 720, a 730, and now this, I would definitely take this over either of the 7 series Yogas. The cooling system and overall build quality are superior with the "watch band hinge" being a tremendous improvement. As far as the weight goes it feels slightly heavier if I'm reaching out with one hand to pick it up off the floor, but it doesn't really feel different sitting on my lap. I put both the 730 13" and this one on a scale and the difference was just under 5oz.

I bought two in this deal (mine is an i7) to replace my and wifes older Toshiba NB15Ts
These are amazingly well built with aluminum body. The hinge is SS with a very rigid construction. It takes little strength to rotate the screen but the angle is extremely adjustable. Screen autorotates based on the orientation of the hinge. Came with a stylus pen and batteries for the stylus. The screen resolution is amazing (not as good as the new 15.6 HP Envy I got from office but better than Asus and Dell I saw at BB b&m) . My last purchase for personal home laptops was 2013 so these are sufficient for my use ( I browse,watch and edit videos, do a bit of CAD design,code in Python occasionally).

I would not call it dim. The colors are more real than the high contrast of HP or Samsung screens.

There is a pen in the right side box that had the charger power cable with plug. Atleast both of my boxes had a pen inside with batteries.

Color range, contrast and brightness are not the same thing. According to the specs this is a 300 nits screen which is on the low side.
