Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

We think you might also be interested in alternative notebook PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Yoga 2[pl_2194317_price], the Yoga 2[pl_2275492_price], or the Yoga[pl_2452506_price] all from Lenovo.

If you would consider a notebook PC with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Acer Switch 10[plb_2323178_price] (1.2kg) which is also cheaper.

We compared all the other 10.1" laptops to this laptop and we think the Acer Switch 10[plb_2323178_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this notebook PC screen size is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the ThinkPad 11e[pl_2583056_price] (11.6"), the Yoga 2[pl_2678912_price] (11.6"), or the Yoga[pl_2553718_price] (12.5") all from Lenovo.

This notebook PC's storage medium (HDD) is in fact the worst storage medium across all notebook PCs of this age and spec.

An SSD storage medium is the best storage medium across similar types of notebook PC.

If the storage medium of this Lenovo notebook PC is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire Switch 10[plb_2964494_price] (SSD and cheaper).
