Yoga 13 256GB with Intel Core i5?

2012-11-26, 14:22 PM

Hello,

 

I'm really interested in getting a Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 with 256 GB, but the only available model is one with Intel Core i7. Do someone know if Lenovo is planing to release a version of Yoga 13 256GB with Intel Core i5?

 

Many thanks

You could get a 256gb msata from a third party for ~$200 and just add it yourself.  There are two msata slots so you could leave the 128 installed and add a 256 for storage.  That is my plan..  Newegg has a compatible ssd CT256M4SSD3

Are your sure it has 2 msata slots? If so, it's a good plan, although not for the warranty, I guess. But I like it :)

Many thanks for your help!

Yes, quite sure. There has been discussion of it here and on another forum I have seen (can't remember which right now).  I also heard something about Best Buy being willing to do the installation and take responsibility for the upgrade without voiding the warranty for a very low price.  I think it was 40 or 50 bucks.

I'm positive it has 2 mSATA slots. I upgraded mine the other day. I added a 256GB SSD to the open slot for a total of 384GB.
