Asus Zenbook UX302LA vs. Lenovo Yoga 2 13

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Both these seem like what I am looking for, and both are $900 at Best Buy. I honestly don't see myself ever putting the yoga in tablet or stand-up mode. I have the idea that Lenovo is better quality than Asus, but what do I know. Which do you guys recommend?

Any comments about reliability of Asus vs lenovo? I'm a bit worried about the zenbook's glass lid as well as the hinges of the lenovo.

ASUS has a reputation for awful customer service and support. It is almost to the point where you cross your fingers and hope that nothing bad happens to your laptop.

Not sure about Lenovo's customer support.

Asus is hit or miss, but they do have some good products. Lenovo when it was only thinkpad and owned by IBM had a sterling QA reputation then. Now, I don't know. My dad's company, bp, moved away from lenovo to dell for their computer business. I hear similar movements away from thinkpad as an industry standard in other fortune 500 companies. Take from that what you will. Lenovo always has the best prices for the features it seems. Some corners must be getting cut.

At any rate, I really despise the Yoga keyboard so as always try before you buy. I think the Asus ultrabooks are probably the best in class as long as you don't care about having a wacom digitizer.
