My Yoga 900 13isk 80MK came with an Intel 8260 wifi card, Lenovo Part# SW10A11647. When I look up the part on the official Lenovo Part Lookup page, it lists Intel 01AX704 (Lenovo Part# SW10K97453) as a "Substitute" and "Equivalent" part.
However, when I look up 01AX704 in Parts Lookup, my Yoga is not listed as compatible.
So.....anyone have any idea whether this 8265 would work in my 900? Here are the listed compatible models;
Wireless,CMB,IN,8265 NV M2 (01AX704) is compatible with the following machines:

The answer to this question is.......YES! The Yoga 900 takes the Intel 8265.
I bought mine from an ebay vendor, "happyshinelife", in China, for $32.90. I paid an extra 99 cents for quicker shipping. Received it in California in 10 days.

Yes, this is VERY true, especially when ordering from China. But this one worked, which is why I listed the vendor name. I've been burned before with counterfeits, etc.
Of course, since Lenovo is HORRIBLE at stocking parts, you have to look to other sources. Lenovo has been out of stock on this for a long time. Don't believe them when they say there is an anticipated arrival date 30 days out. The anticipated date stays at 30 days out. I would have much rather bought from Lenovo, but I don't know when or if they will ever have it in stock. So I gambled on an eBay seller with a good reputation.
