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.
Solved! Go to Solution.

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!
