Re: If not the Yoga, then what?

2013-03-26, 10:00 AM
I am in same situation, searching new laptop for my niece. I wanted to buy Yoga 13 for her, but based on these crazy issues, described on this forum, i am completely discouraged. I have quite good experience with Thinkpads, i use them for almost 10 years, but i see the quality is going down, especially not thinkpad products of lenovo are quite problematic. I plan to buy Zenbook UX31A or UX32VD, i am still making decision.

Re: If not the Yoga, then what?

Hi guys,
 
I'm very much in the same boat as many of you, and was very concerned after reading this forum before buying a Yoga 13. So I wanted to paste my conversation with a Lenovo rep which at the time was very reassuring but I now realize the issue may not have been resolved.  I'm curious what you guys think...
 
Me:  Among connectivity issues, the Wifi turns off during sleep mode and does not turn back on.
 
Rep:  Oh! the old Wi-Fi issue, that has been resolved on all the present models. Yes that is fixed Matt.
There is no issue now.
 
 Me:  I hope you understand that before paying about $1500, it would be helpful to see this issue addressed by Lenovo... is there a link by any chance for this?
 
Rep:  Yes I understand that, this has been informed by our tech support team that it has been fixed however not yet available on the website, you can keep the copy of this chat for furthur reference.

That is good news. Now that the problem is resolved I'm certain someone from Lenovo will be posting soon to let us know what they are going to do for us early adopters.

I really want to believe that, but unfortunately, the Lenovo Reps have such a reputation for saying anything to get you to buy. I'm afraid we'll never see an update... or at least, I'll believe it when I see it.

Re: yoga 13 wifi issues

Have Yoga 13 for 3 weeks now and suddenly the wifi is disabled. It is not drop or performance issue. All my wifi connection are gone. Any way to get the wifi back?

 

Resolution: My network driver is corrupted. Download the drive from Lenovo again solve the problem.

My Yoga is at Lenovo with the techs looking into the WiFi issue. From what I understand they do not have a fix yet, and they are trying to verifiy the problem with my Yoga. It's been a couple days now so I hope they found the problem and is being resolved.

Just saw on Lenovo's site that they changed the wireless card in the Yoga from Realtek to Intel.

I am sure the Intel wireless cards will not have these problems.

Wow, that is amazing.. and a good find, thanks for letting us know.

 

FYI, I've been following this thread from the begining and am one of the lucky ones that's had an overall really great experience with wifi. My range is good, speed is good everthing is fine, BUT I have made a few changes mentioned earlier in the thread:

1.) Stay on driver version 1021.2.904.2012

2.) Disable the Realtek Bluetooth adapter in device manager

3.) Turn 'selected suspend' setting in device manager driver properties to disabled.

 

Glad to know Lenovo is finally putting an Intel chip in. I wonder if that will bring back WiDi compatability?

 

Also, knowing the odd shape of the realtek card and proprietary adapter, I wonder how they're going to do it. Custom internal adapter? Maybe we can get one for our 1st gen models.

Where did you see this? Perhaps a link? And any hope for the rest of us?
