Re: Did my Yoga 2 Pro come with AC Wifi?

I agree!  I got the i5 model then immediately upgraded to a larger mSATA.  One of these days I may regret not getting the i7, but the i5 is more than adequate for my needs now.  I consider it the best laptop I have ever owned.

Re: Did my Yoga 2 Pro come with AC Wifi?

My device is 5 months old and this is what I get (sorry if it's in German):

Any idea if it's Dual Band or not? Which one do I own? OK seems to be non-Dual Band. :(

Sorry to confirm It's non dual band. It doesn't have 802.11a and 802.11ac which only operates on 5 GHz band.

See the line that says Treiber :Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260? That is the single band wifi. The dual band adapter is Intel(R) Wireless-AC 7260

 

FWIW, unless you KNOW you are doing things on your network that you are certain will benefit from the dual band setup there is no reason to be concerned about it. It is unlikely to speed up your home internet access. Here in the US, even the faster home internet services top out at 60-64 mbps. Regular 802.11n speed is much faster than that and will support a number of devices and HD video with no problem.  And remember that you have to have a dual band AC router to take advantage of a dual band AC adapter.
