Review: Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e Review & Rating | PCMag.com

It has an Intel Celeron processor (slow) and uses the SSD to speed things up. With the price so low, there has to be cost cutting somewhere.

Lenovo like everyone else makes hardware at all price points. The better laptops are the T or X series. Those are made for business use and carry a stiff price. I worked for IBM when they still owned the Thinkpad series and used many T series 10-12 hours a day and they held up for years.

Look for an i3 right around $300. It'll last you tons longer than a celeron, and it's much better hardware to be on.

Yea, i'd buy the Asus Best Buy one over that junk Chinese one any day of the week. Plus, if anything goes wrong with it, Best Buy would take care of you immediately.
