I'm going to buy a Lenovo Yoga 910 i7 7gen.

Is there any other 2in1 i should be looking at (apart from the HP), any other laptop for the £1300 price range? I'm not fussed about playing games, i need something thin and light for working & adobe.

Reading reviews the screen is not very good, so i'm now looking at this. Buying windows laptops is hard.

If battery life is a consideration for you, I wouldn't get one with a dedicated GPU.

why? the OS doesn't even use the dedicated gpu unless a specific program needs it.

I want to run some games for when i'm away, or working in my home office (when i should be working). I'm now leaning back to the Asus.

or

Basically 4k with GF9 or 1080 GTX1050

I can thoroughly recommend the MSI - if you're after a gaming laptop it does the business. I got mine for the 17" screen (home office/gaming) BUT it is quite heavy if you're regularly transporting, and most regular laptop baggies might not enjoy the size! I managed to get a nice sturdy case logic backpack, it does the job but isn't stylish :)

What's the GF9x like with gaming? Not bothered about ultra settings, but would like a 4K screen.
