I see it has a 128GB 1.8" SSD. I would like to upgrade to 256GB, does anyone know which models would fit?

No removable battery and its a refurb. So who knows what the battery life is. Seems like a big risk.

The battery is a FRU (Field Replacable Unit), which means if you have some skills then you can buy a new OEM battery and upgrade it. Otherwise, send your laptop to Lenovo and they will do it for you for a nice charge.

You can also add a second hard drive (mSATA), upgrade memory to 8GB, and use SD cards. Not a lot more that you can find at this price point.

Runs regular Windows 8 - not Win 8 RT (huge plus - stay away from regular Yoga 11) and not Win 8 Pro.

If you want to read more about Yoga, check this out:
http://download.lenovo.com/consum...nglish.pdf

That is the hardware maintenance manual - if you go to Lenovo.com and click support at the bottom, you can drill down and get manuals for most Lenovo products.

If you go to page 41 (for some reason, it was page 46 in Acrobat), it appears to be a Micro SATA drive. So yes, you can upgrade. However, make sure you read all of the steps first - it isn't easy to monkey inside this machine.

I'm on the fence - this is a great price for a cool machine. However, I have an i7 T420, and my work T430, so I don't think I need another machine right now.

Oh, and those considering the eCoupon "MADNESS", remember that Lenovo is headquartered next to Duke and North Carolina (and NC State) - between them, they have won 10 NCAA "March Madness" titles.

Lucky. I decided to give it a shot, OOS, and no Add to Cart button. lol. Just my luck.

EDIT - watch it come back for more money. Frown
What's all this talk about it being OOS? For me it shows “Only 1380 left!“ and no problem adding to cart. I am viewing on Galaxy S3 standard browser...
edit: 10 mins. later and it's down to 1365.
edit 2: why do they have over 1500 of these that needed refurbishing?

I'm using IE and it says in stock... I just can't add the promo code MADNESS (no discount applied when I submit it) in my cart.

Weird.

I was using Chrome and OPs link. I switched to IE and OPs link didnt have add to cart button, but a manual search, in IE, showed the 1365. I ended up getting one. Might as well give it a shot.

Upgrade the battery in how new it is or size? I can see a 8GB Ram upgrade. Not sure on anything else. Maybe a second HD, but it would have to be an SSD I assume?

Bluestacks is hit or miss.. but yes, it will install and yes you can use the touch function. Most people claim alot of lag on graphic intensive games though.

Someone give me a reason not to buy this? Seems like a win win in regards to good price for hybrid tablet/laptop.

Is a savings of $300 for refurb worth it? ($925 at Staples for brand new)
it was actually on sale for $900 from newegg and amazon a week ago I believe/ I'm typing on a refurb one now Smilie
