My buddy said that he tried this as suggested by Lenovo tech support but it did not fix the issue on the 730...
Oh man.. i really look forward to receiving this laptop...

Now with this known issue, I am not sure if I am going to keep this.

It's really great price for a 2-in-1 lenovo

Meh I'm not too worried because they have an extended return policy right now, until Jan 15. That's about 45 days from receiving it for those that bought it this weekend.

Lots of time for the issue to show itself and then just return for free and shop for something else on Boxing Day.

I also searched around and some people said it's more of an issue for 15" model. We'll see, still a good deal to try it out!

Canceled my order last night. Maybe new builds have solved issues, but I just couldn't bring myself to risk it after reading through Lenovo forums about screen flickering issues as recent as this month.

Cancelled mine too, tons of complaints about the screen flickering, and judging by the bestbuy dot com review dates seems like it's still very much ongoing. Plus Lenovo's response is terrible.

Went for the Dell XPS 9360 for $899 @ Microsoft Store. Half the SSD of the Lenovo, but might be the closest deal for the most similar machine, spec-wise and build quality. XPS isn't 2-in-1 though.

You may want to read the reviews on this model. I was thinking the same thing until I read the reviews. I'll wait for boxing day.

Sorry I'm not sure I understand? Are you saying the XPS 9360 isn't good, which reviews are you referring to? TIA

Google "XPS9360-5203SLV-PUS reviews". Look at the recent dell.com review.

For those that decided to keep their order, have your laptops been shipped out yet? Mine is still not shipped and bought it on Friday.

I also ordered on Friday; the i7-512 version for $1179. I submitted the cancellation request this morning after reading about the screen issues. But I recieved the shipping confirmation after few hours. Well, it will give opportunity to use it for few days but I am going to return it for sure. Not sure what’s their policy on the restocking fee though. I also recieved the Ebates cashback :) on Friday. Most likely they will undo it.
