    I'll never get the concept of a convertible where the keyboard is uncovered when using it as a tablet. Strikes me as an ideal way to make sure the keyboard gets knocked/damaged so you can sell replacement keyboards

    Actually i have a Yoga and it works really well. The keyboard thing is a complete none-issue in practice. The problems with it are much deeper than that.

    Please elaborate Biscuit

    The Yoga has interested me since it was first demoed a couple of years ago. I don't think I would go for one now, not with some of the other 2-in-1 options out there, but my wife has started asking about it. I think she wants a new laptop.

    that thinkpad 11e chromebook looks a bit like a 20 year old ibm laptop, hardly modern

    Have a read through my thread. The stuff about my experiences is mostly towards the end. FYI its the thinkpad Yoga, not the Ideapad which was the original.

    To summarise, I have had some inconsistencies in the build quality, the WIFI can be a bit sketchy and the OneLink docking port just flat out doesn't work properly. found a new problem the other day actually as it has a rattle .

    Lenovo customer service has been alright but there is a thread over on the official Lenovo forums about this with loads of people complaining about the docking issue and instead of just admitting there is a problem and letting the customers know they are working on it, they just keep sending us all in circles.

    The form factor is brilliant though and its such a shame that i have had lodge a formal complaint and escalate it using the sales of goods act

    I'm going to see what they say about it all when they respond to my complaint but i might settle for an exchange to a T440s or X1 carbon rather than a full refund return.
