Scooch, ATIV Q! Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro on sale: get 3200x1800 display, Haswell and true tablet mode for $1049
Intel CEO said that the gear with its new processors will also come affordable this holiday season, and he wasn't kidding. Lenovo put its amazing Yoga 2 Pro on sale the minute of introduction yesterday, and the 13.3" convertible with 3200x1800 touchscreen can be had for just $1050 now.

For that price you get the base model, with Core i3 Haswell, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB SSD, but you still receive the highest pixel density on a laptop, and the innovative hinge that allows you to flip the display part 360 degrees (you read that right) to the back, and use the convertible as a true multitouch tablet.For just a Benjamin more, you can get Core i5, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD, which is a great deal, and the powerful Core i7 unit will run you $1499. 

Moreover, since we have Haswell inside, Lenovo claims 9 hours of battery life at average 150 nits brightness of the screen and general idling with Windows 8.1, while watching Full HD videos on the convertible will dry out the juicer for the bearable 6 hours, considering the might of this thin (0.6") and light (3 pounds) machine. It also has a backlit keyboard now, and comes in Silver Gray and our personal favorite - Clementine Orange. Any takers?

You can get it from bestbuy for even lesser prices. Price of this is really amazing and all others will be forced to rethink about their pricing (Dell XPS 13, 12 and 11, Samsung Ativ book plus, Acer S7).

This is really fantastic price for such high specced laptop/convertible.

HP needs to stop crying about Microsoft making hardware and start making good devices.
Lenovo will kill them before Microsoft with these awesome devices at great prices.

very bizarre pricing, seems too good to be true. Seems like best buy already has it available to ship as well.

I just ordered mine off lenovo today, i5/8g/256ssd for $1100, still a sick deal. I would cancel mine and go with the i7 for a 100 more but its silver. that silver color looks depressing, doesn't make it look like the latest in technology. Mine will be delivered in two weeks though :(

I guess the pricing is a bit attractive because it lacks a dedicated graphics card.

Wish there was an option to make this entertainment beast into a gaming beast as well.

I suppose but the new vaio flip 15 from Sony, you can add a 2gb nvidia card for only 50 dollars. I think the prices are falling in general. the flip series from Sony looks sick, it was a hard debate but I hope I'm happy with the yoga pro 2

Most people does not care about graphics cards on laptops.

Also, Vaio flip battery life sucks. Its a shame because their own Vaio pro 13 has great battery life.

I think they mean 'sick' good cuz the Sony Multi-Flip PC has a great design. The battery life doesn't suck, but its bearable just like the yoga pro 2. It juices out a little less for video playback, but all in all is I want to say a better design than this plain looking yoga. I'm still debating if I should get the 14" Sony Flip or this. Right now, I'm leaning towards the Multi-Flip. The only thing pushing me is price.

yea, good sick lol. why the 14 inch? that's the odd one in the middle. the 13/15 inch both have exclusive upgradeable parts. if you're a student, you can get 10%.off,still not as cheap as yoga but not so bad in price.

the flip definitely more attractive one, but I'm just worried I'll have more issues on it than with the yoga

Lenovo really are on a roll. What they need to do is improve their logo - it looks terrible especially on a tablet.

would so have went for the Lenovo' I was originally considering buying the first Core i5 based ivy bridge Yoga earlier this year(only missing feature is the active stylus but not a huge issue) but Lenovo were busy pretending my country didn't exist at the time so I purchased a Surface Pro.

am buying this if only it supports sim-card. usb-modem sticks out or even with the "folding" one you always feel you're gonna break it when moving the laptop/tablet around...ive an hp elitebook revolve that supports 3g, unfortunately battery life is terrible only 4 hours...nothing is perfect i guess..
