Now for the toughest question...probably already asked before. Would you still recommend this computer for college (4 year program) if I could get a thinkpad yoga 12 2nd gen. with the same specs? I like that this laptop has that extra inch which really helps but the durability is questionable. Then again, the yoga has a matte screen protector on it (yuck) but it's the brightest display which kind of compensates for it. Plus the viewing angles equal a but that extra inch and twisting screen (no gimmicky flip going on) change my opion every time ... soooo I'm stuck between the two. Thanks for replying, if you do, and please offer an explanation as to why you recommend the one that you do. I know this is long but I would much appreciate it. Thanks!
