Lenovo Yoga 720 13" with i5-8250u/FHD/8gb/256 SSD for $988?

Or Lenovo Ideapad 720s 14" with i5-8250u/FHD/8gb/256 SSD +MX150 for $988?
Yes costs more, but weighs only 3,3 lbs and offer dedicated gpu

Ideapd 720s is good as well, but it 14", weighs 3.4 lbs, and the 2 in 1 may appeal more to students taking notes? But can't really go wrong with either, although the i7-8550u deal right on BF was better

When I was picking up my laptop at SQ 1, they had Inspiron 13.

Specs: Windows 10, i7-8550U, 8GB RAM/256 SSD, 13.3" FHD/ UHD Graphics 620. Weight 3.7 lbs. 42WHr, 3-cell Battery. Regular $1,349, now $849.

Not sure of stock level.

If anyone in Calgary area is still interested, the Microsoft store at Chinook still has good stock. I had talked to the customer service before lunch today, they had about 20 pieces available. Good Luck!

Thanks OP. Grabbed one from Metrotown. I've been looking for a decent laptop in the $500 range and this one is pretty good given the specs and the price. Yes, it doen't have and SSD or the best build or screen but for $550 you can't find anything close to this (I have been looking since back-to-school sales in August). You get the 8th gen i5-8250, 8GB ram 1080P screen. The best part is it's user upgradable so throwing in an SSD or some more ram is possible.

That’s what I’m thinking too...

I got last year's version of this sale and it has been great. I assume the make and quality is similar. Took out the dvd drive and put an SSD and it made a world of difference. the cons I have are the power plug into the laptop is very loose, very heavy, and the touchpad isn't centred. Because of this, I right click by accident alot. Took some time to get use to. For the price, it is a great buy, especially for the HD screen.

You can replace the DVD drive with a second SSD? Do you need to buy an adapter for that?
