    louis – January 4, 2018:

    I recently purchased the thinkpad yoga 260 with a specification of i3 6100u intel cpu 4gb ddr4-2133 ram 256 m.2 2280 samsung ssd 720 gloosy screen
    from the get go the machine is snappy and ruged,with its slender form factor and clean likes whilst a buisness machine it still feels at home in the living room
    the screen was a little underwhelming however after some minor tweaks in the intel hd utility preinstalled i found the colours instantly popped and the overall experiance was far more satisfying.
    i have since owning added a 512 samsung nvme 960 pro ssd and pulled the 4gb ram out in favour of the 8gb stick branded SR hynix which matched the original lenovo supplied part.
    I have to date experianced no problems at all with the machine its quiet cool fast and a wonder to own,i even hook it upto my asus rog swift display via the mini dp and its hard to believe this little ultrabook is powering my gaming experiance.
