Ideapad Yoga 13 SDXC compatible?

SDXC is not listed on the spec sheet so I assume the answer is no, but I figured I would check and see if someone could confirm before I purchase a smaller SDHC card.  I would really like a 64GB card but don't want to shell out and have to return it.

I am using a 128GB card I got from Tiger Direct for about $84.

 

It's formatted in exFAT because I need to use it in a MAC and this yoga.

 

Works fine!

BTW, here is the page where the card is listed.  The sale price (rebate) is no longer running.

Yes it is... its not a speed demon like using a USB 3.0 drive, but it will do.

 

Maybe if you want you can spend more $$$ and get a sandisk card with faster I/O.  These are like 2X the price of the kingston.

How far out of the side of the Yoga does the card stick? Little enough that it won't interrupt daily us?

It doesn't stick out at all. The SD card sits almost flush with the bezel.

Re: Ideapad Yoga 13 SDXC compatible?

Hi...I was told by Lenovo sales rep (after they checked with a tech person in their group) that the Yoga can support only 64GB of SD memory.

 

Are you able to verify that all 128GB of your Kingston SDXC card is available to the Yoga once the card is installed? Maybe a dumb question but before I buy it would be nice to know that the Lenovo folks are mistaken and the machine can handle more SD memory than the spec sheets say it can.

 

Also I noticed another post that differentieates Sandisk from Kingston as a faster card. Doesn't the class 10 rating on the Kingston card place it in pretty much the same speed class as anything Sandisk makes in the same class rating? Or, has Sandisk got that much better a product that their class 10 is faster than someone else's class 10?

 

Thanks for any and all replies!
