I've bought a few of these laptops in the $249-263 price range. Rock solid mini versions of the flag ship Thinkpad Yoga 12 and newer 260. You can definitely feel the slower Intel chip versus it's big brother but the SSD is truly crazy fast.

Have not been able to figure out whether the memory can be upgraded or not. Some models can at least. If you have machine types 20D9 or 20DA, here is the service manual:

I've been sifting through the Woot posts trying to figure out whether or not to jump on this and I can tell you there are several confirmations of people easily upgrading it to 8GB.
Bought this from Amazon marketplace about 2-3 months ago and love it. "Puny" isnt exactly how I'd describe the CPU but my comparison point is that I'm mostly a thin-client user but replaced a Samsung NP300u1a i3-2357m CPU and this puny CPU actually outperforms that ULW 2nd generation Core i3 if you compare it on Passmark! Glare of the glossy screen is about the only caution I'd have for those sensitive to that. It's a touchscreen too so if you plan on using that feature, a polarized filter might not be a good solution. FWIW. Otherwise,. I agree with the solid construction and fantastic features for the price. I put in a single 8GB DDR3L SO-DIMM for about $25 and the battery appears to be fairly easy to replace when it's time to replace it. Solid recommend if you're a light to moderate type of task user like I am.
