Know anyone that owns a Google Chromebook Pixel? or Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11?



LINK



I have been using the cheap Samsung Chromebook, and feel comfortable using it...doubt I would spend $1300 for the Pixel, but I love its specs and features.

I played around with a Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11 today at Best Buy...like how it can turn from a laptop into a tablet...

I am in the market for a new laptop and it appears that there are a ton of choices.

They are just dependable. I love my W520, and I'm thinking of getting the Ideapad Yoga 11 for the office. I went and played with it and freaking loved it.

Ruh roh. I just went on Lenovo's website and it said they are no longer selling it online, but you can still get it from a retailer. I don't know if that is a bad thing.

I ordered the Lenovo twist today with the 3.0 docking station. I wanted the laptop and tablet features. We shall see how that works out. This will be my first ThinkPad. Been using nothing but Dell Latitudes for the last 6 years.

I asked powerman this very exact question last night. He told me if money were of no issue, he'd just get a Mac book pro.

He did say the two you are taking about are gadgets that would all be useless in 6 months. But apple just always just works.

This
I just got one a few months ago, Love it. I love the Mountain Lion interface, plus you can run Windows 7 or 8 right out the box.

ETA: before the MacBook Pro, I had an G4 tower that I bought in 2002 and i used it as my main computer for over 10 years. Apple products can last a while.

MacBook pro

I've had mine for 2 years and have had zero issues. I still use Microsoft office bc of excel mostly and it all runs great.

Before, I had an HP that couldn't load properly anymore and a dell that kept having virus problems.

The Haswells won't be out until the fall, so you'll be buying 2-year old tech (i5/i7) if you get one now.

It's rumored that Apple may not update the regular Macbook Pros, leaving the Retina based Pros as their only higher end notebook.

Honestly, though, I'm waiting for a Haswell based Surface Pro. With OneNote and a digitizer pen, the Pro is an incredible note taking device. It's fast and quite versatile in terms of the physical form factors it can assume - I can hold it in my hands like a tablet, set it up like a notebook with a full tactile keyboard within seconds, or can hook it up to an external monitor. The real issue with the first generation unit, however, is battery life.

I do think the Surface Pro is one of the more underrated devices on the market currently, and a second generation unit sporting a Haswell chipset would likely make it a practical alternative for quite a few people.
