    I got the previous E460 deal, but am not sure whether i should swap it with this one, the E460 notebook has a few issue that makes me question whether I should return it.

    I will be using this as a desktop replacement and will hook it up to an external monitor.
    General usage: Browsing the net, Photo Editing, Music listening, Video watching, Streaming things to TV/Media/Music Device, Device management (updating software and uploading/downloading things to/off a device). Will not be playing games on it.

    Not sure I need the graphic card.

    Hi Wobble987,

    Coincidently, I was just looking at those deals last night.
    What I see is that:
    1. AMD Radeon R7 M360 2GB does not really mean much if you look at the that graphic spec in detail and compare it with desktop level graphic.
    memory bus, memory bandwidth are the key things to see how capable a graphic card is.
    Simply put, it will not be ideal for gaming if it is your purpose.

    2. Battery: Yoga 460 definitely lasts a lot longer.
    3. Yoga 460 has touch screen and a little bit less weight
    4. Though CPU wise, Yoga 460 is i5 but that is not a concern for me.
    5. I think Yoga 460 comes with 16 GB SSD internally so should speed up the boot up a lot.
    6. Form factor - Yoga 460 is thinner and look more stylish compared to E460 traditional old look

    If you must pick one of them, I would recommend Yoga 460.
    Hope helps.
