Basically, Lenovo is offering a sturdy convertible with cool features that aren’t supposed to be in this price range in the first place but raises concerns about the overall performance and durability of the pricier configurations. They do offer more powerful CPUs and a better IPS touch panel, but other things such as the touchpad and screen wobbling might be getting in the way. And our final words are about the cooling system, which scored pretty well in our tests because it kept the internals and the outer chassis cool during the tests and even the CPU didn’t throttle. This and the super silent fan came by a surprise.
