Bought my first Lenovo! Can I order the orange front/back plate for the Yoga Series Yoga 700-11ISK?

On Friday I bought the 11.6'' Yoga 700 from Best Buy open box.  I think I got a great deal for $300. It has the Skylake Core m3, 128GB SSD, but only 4GB of RAM.   It was basically $100 more than some of the other 11.6 offerings with an Atom CPU and the slower eMMC hard drive.   I really wanted the new Macbook but for less than a third of the cost I'll take it.

 

I may replace the 128GB SSD for a 256GB or a 512GB down the road.  The RAM is stuck at 4GB with no upgrades, correct?

 

It has some abuse on the outer soft touch shell and a small crack by one of the screw holes on the back cover.

I'd like to find out if I can order the orange front/back covers for it.  It's silver which isn't too bad and it's only cosmetic concerns.  I think that orange is sharp.  If I can't order them maybe I'll just cover it with stickers or try out some of that PlastiDip paint.

Lenovo's manual is very thorough.  I was able to answer my own question.  It's just a matter of finding out how much the parts cost.  Might as well order a second charger while I'm at it with the charger being a proprietary piece.  Apple got it right moving the Macbook charger a to Type C connection.

Lenovo's chat was easy to use.

She provided me with a link where I looked up the prices.

Looks like I may take the extra power adapter and go with the PlastiDip!

Man...I can't be believe a plastic front and back cover cost $300!

What a joke!
