5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

Most laptops of a similar age and spec to the Yoga do not have a full-size keyboard. The Lenovo Yoga is no exception to this as it too does not have a full-size keyboard.

We compared all the other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard to this portable PC and we think the Toshiba U920t which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Only HDD Storage Medium

Most 2 in 1 laptops that have been around for a comparable time to it have an SSD storage medium. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks.

An HDD storage medium is in fact the worst storage medium across all laptops of a comparable age and type to the Yoga.

The best storage medium amongst similar types of portable PC is SSD.

Notebook PCs with a better storage medium that might be worth looking at include the Lenovo Yoga (SSD), or the HP Pavilion x360 (£382.66) (SSD).

Average Battery Life

The Lenovo Yoga has a pretty standard battery life (7 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Yoga.

We compared all the other 7h battery life laptops to this laptop and we think because of it's better review score, the Lenovo Yoga is also worth considering.

If this 2 in 1 laptop battery life is not long enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL Inspiron 11 3147 (7.5h).
