I can say from experience that my T450 is booting perfectly fine from M.2. Electrically though my understanding is that they won't take PCI-E M.2 stuff, only SATA. Also, having my BIOS updated to the latest version may be helping me on that front as well.You have to look at a Tx60p to get one that will actually boot off m.2; lesser models will only use them as caching drives.
Prob a little late for you now but I recently got a T460s to replace my old work T520, a tidge over 3 pounds, and 1080p in 14". Small enough to fit in my motorcycle tank bag, pretty snappy with i5, 8gb of ram and a 256gb SSD, only consumer downside is the integrated battery but if I have problems work will swap it out. Certainly a huge weight/volume reduction compared to the T5xx series. Would highly recommend.How about the T450s?
The S1 has a 12.5" display and I assume is a fair bit lighter than the 14" Yoga 500. Do you think the extra weight would spoil the experience?
When I looked at it last night shortly after you posted the link the price was $899...I was like, maybe Clocker found a good deal like he usually does with some coupon or something. :-DDamn Price went from $780 to $899 overnight. Guess I will pass for now. Amazon went out of stock and it is only 3rd party seller now.
Thanks for the feedback on those. Have any of the ones you're re-selling been the Zenbook Pro or are you primarily reselling just the normal Zenbook models?Handy, Zenbooks have been my go-to consumer notebook recommendation for a few years. I re-sell four or five a year and they're well built with nice screens and keyboards. The only reason I've ever opened one is to upgrade an SSD, but even that speaks highly of them since I've not had to swap a screen or a keyboard on one.
