Lenovo Yoga 7i Gen 6 vs Gen 7 laptop price/buying advice

Before Christmas I purchased a Gen 6 Lenovo Yoga 7i 15”. Lenovo have just announced the new Gen 7 version of the Yoga 7i 16” and they’ve made some changes/improvements. I’m wondering if folks on here who are familiar with Lenovo pricing and sales/deals might be able to help me decide.

Specs on my Gen 6 Lenovo Yoga 7i 15”:
i7-1165G7 processor
16 GB RAM
1 TB HD
500 nit HDR 400 Dolby Vision display
$1,273.49

The new Gen 7 pricing is supposed to start at $899 US ($1,126.54) and it will be available Q1 this year. https://www.windowscentral.com/lenovo-y ... 7-announce

My budget is pretty set at $1,300 so I’m trying to decide whether to return the Gen 6 and wait and purchase a Gen 7. Spec wise I could go down to an i5 and lower on the storage (512 GB) and don’t think I need a 2.5K display but I’d like to keep the 16 GB of memory.

I’m guessing the $899 is going to be a base model? Maybe 8 GB memory and 256 GB storage? And maybe a less good display? So is one with comparable specs to my Gen 6 more likely to go for $1,770 like my Gen 6 is currently listed for?

Over the last 6-9 months I’ve been watching Yoga 7i prices and have seen lots of sales and coupons come up with various levels of discount. (That’s how I snagged the deal I did) The Gen 6 Yoga 7i was released in early 2020 I believe so I don’t know if the frequency of those deals was just because the Gen 6 was already a year old. When would similar deals to what I got come up for the Gen 7? In 2022, or not likely until 2023 (or really late 2022)?

Thanks in advance!
