      I love my 420. Had it for years. Put an SSD and it's still going strong. Well except for the 20 minute battery life. If the time comes I'll definitely be looking at a Yoga, 13 or other from them.

        Might want to be careful with Lenovo's for a bit.

        Lenovo scrambling to get a fix for BIOS vuln

        Lenovo, and possibly other PC vendors, is exposed to a UEFI bug that can be exploited to disable firmware write-protection...
        ...an attacker can “disable flash write protection and infect platform firmware, disable Secure Boot, [and] bypass Virtual Secure Mode (Credential Guard, etc.) on Windows 10 Enterprise.”

          I bet Lenovo feel a bit aggrieved they are mentioned throughout the article. It does say HP laptops from 2010 also have the vulnerability so reading between the lines there could be quite a few more.

          Interesting link though thanks.
