    I know it's annoying with Thinkpads having Fn and Ctrl swapped but you can switch them over in the bios setup. The outside key is still a bit too small then and says "Fn" on it but it's better when switching between machines.

    This dude is probably the most considerate laptop reviewer I've ever seen. Most just try to inform you, but he really thinks about anything that could influence your decision no matter who you are. If display is important if it runs hot, what's annoying what's comfortable, what's amazing, what's decent. Honestly, favorite reviewer and really trustworthy

    I have been searching for a laptop 5 months. I have gotten behind on my tech knowledge. I am not a techie but to a dummy either. This entire site has provided more useable information than the dozens of others I have used.

      @Just Josh I can get a Mac Aire but it’s about $200 over my preferred limit. I was serious after the M1 came out. I do well with an I pad 9 7 and my i 12 phone but have always worked on Microsoft units. I am retired and am concerned about the transition. Most laptops were 1021 or 1035. The Ryzen 5 4500 and Ryzen 7 4700 were impressive and I feel I would need a Tiger Lake to compete. The 528g is not a priority but SSD is. A nice keyboard you made me aware of. I am left handed and the off centered touchpad drives me crazy with lots of accidental touches. The newest priority you showed me was the brightness and quality of the screen. Worth the extra The WiFi 6 seems an advantage but I can’t find out how much. The last is weight. Around 3 lbs. Size: I have mostly looked at the 14” due to weight. No problem with a light 15”. Thanks. Tom

    Thank you for your guide, fortunately my country does carry the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro with AMD. Only thing stopping me from purchasing is the worry that the laptop will create problems within the first year similar to other users reports on Lenovo laptops. Anyone who has been using it, so far so good?

    You don't put the "locked into walled ecosystem" as a con. For some people, all the values of other advantages must substantially trump this aspect for them to be able to take the plunge.
    I gotta say, windows laptop in 2020 had improved a lot. Thanks to AMD who moved the market to such competitive edge. Amd is the 2020 winner.

    Im about to return the M1, it has a lot going for it but compared to my older macbook pro, it doesn't really feel much different experience wise other than obviously the battery life is excellent. The touchpad isn't a game changer but the complete lack of ports is. On top of that, mac osx is starting to really annoy me for a laptop/pc experience. It is such a pain to download software and get it going compared to a windows computer. I want to have control of my computer, not vice versa

    ThnkPad keyboards outclass everything in my opinion. I really like the page up and page down keys in that position. The Fn and Ctrl keys can be swapped using the Lenovo Vantage software (comes built in and is actually useful) with a simple toggle.
