    I currently have a Lenovo P-400 which I like a lot, but has been dropped. Now I have to keep a rubber band on the power cable, the mouse pad doesn't work, and 2 of my 3 USB ports don,t work.
    I'd be open to getting the same thing, but this did have trouble with the mouse pad at times.

    The Lenovo ThinkPad 460 Yoga from Best Buy is a good value, and business class. It's not as well-built as a traditional ThinkPad T-series, but can stand up to wear and tear better than the average consumer notebook.
    For something thinner and lighter, you can look at the Lenovo Yoga 710 14.
