I was on the phone yesterday with the Lenovo Rep comparing the Lenovo Yoga options and models and a MS surface. Here is what she suggested;
Do not go with the Yoga Pro because the "M" class Intel Processor is 1/2 the speed and you will not be making up the performance with simply the 256GB SSD. It's cooler, doesn't require a fan, weighs less but you will not get the performance like you will if you go with the Yoga that has the i5 or i7 chip. My friend tells me that the i7 burns a hole in his pants because of the heat it gives off. I haven't asked to see that.
As for the Surface.... nice technology! My friend loves his surface but complains about an Aspect Ratio issue that apparently MS has not addressed that causes problems with his displays.
Any thoughts on what might be the best selection? I presently run a T 430 that has an i5 running firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz. The M class is rated, I believe at something less while the i7 is at 4mb@3GHz. My workload is not CAD but gaming "sometimes". Photoshop "Yes"; but primarily using it for MS Office functions and Outlook. Also, I've been told that MS Win. 10 Home does not allow for VPN capabilities and I'd need to consider MS Win. Pro. True?
Oh finally, a Mac, while it seems "pretty" is not in the cards. ;-)
Thank you in advance.
