    Looking for 2 in 1 laptop 15 inch preferably with touchscreen

    Need a good chip and ram for multi tasking and a bright screen

    Budget up to 1500e but lower is better

    yoga 14s

    would bring base model to about 840

    not worth the extra for i7 over the i5 in intel mobile G chips

    for a laptop like this it very unusually has upgradable ram (1 slot free) and a second nvme ssd slot free

    looks a great option for the money

    What about hp 360 and dell 2 in 1s.

    Is it easier to add lenovo ram later

    Why do you say i7 is not worth it over i5

    Because i7 scales to 4 cores on the more affordable end unless you want to spend enormous amounts for the intel brand but a Ryzen 5 and 7 scale to 6 and 8 cores respectively and a Ryzen 5 is price competitive with the i7s

    I have a Dell Latitude 7400 2 in 1, it feels high quality with an aluminum chassis and not far off a Macbook pro for looks and feel. I have the Dell pen with it which I find really useful.

    The only issue I have with it is the 16:9 screen which I find is a pain to work with any documents.

    with intel i7's it's not worth the extra cost over the i5 for the performance benefit

    Lenovo model has a free ram slot so easier to add ram (click in)

    also has an ssd slot to add another m.2 ssd hard drive

    comparatively it's better value than the dells and hp's

    it's well built

    14 is the ideal size for touch screens on a laptop

    15.6 is big for a touch screen really

    Screen is 300 nits which is decently bright for a laptop

    What size is that.. Have you had any issues with the screen and laptop freezing.
    How long have you had it

    Any more suggestions for this

    Lenovo probably make the biggest range of 2-in-1's

    look on their website, particularly under the yoga section

    the one that I've linked is excellent tho.

    no need to spend more.

    but if it's out of stock look at the other ones
