    Nice review! Would be great if you could test the single-core performance as well.

    Ah shoot I see the CB single-core score already. Nevermind :D

    The reason why I skipped the convertibles from Lenovo (even though I would have enjoyed one) were the hinges. A quick search for "lenovo hinges class action" returns plenty of results on this theme:

    With a sigh, I decided to go with a safer design, so I bought myself a clamshell (Lenovo Yoga Slim 7, an otherwise excellent device).

      Thanks. That's a good point and something buyers should consider, but unfortunately, reliability issues are impossible for me to call out in reviews, as I'm only using these laptops for weeks, rarely months. I wasn't aware it's that bad with the Lenovo laptops. I'll add a mention in the article.
