The living nightmare of trying to get rid of a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 11E

By | May 30, 2016

It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise (ie, I should’ve known) that Woot.com, being a closeout store, doesn’t accept returns for anything other than damaged products. I am now selling my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 11E Touch Ultrabook, Quad Core, 128GB, 4GB RAM, 67% off!!! on ebay. If you’ve seen my earlier posts, you know that I’m not happy with it, or Lenovo, in the slightest. But maybe, if you’re not interested in tech support or Wacom digitizers, you might be able to be happy with it? It seems like a nifty product otherwise. Again, so long as you don’t need digitizer tech or tech support. Anything that involves “tech” as an adjectifying noun, really.

So what makes this ordeal a nightmare? Well, in this particular instance, nightmare might be a bit of an overstatement. But dealing with ebay is certainly unpleasant these days. Always. Consider that they add reviews to your product listing. Consider that in this instance, the reviews are fairly negative. Now consider that the reviews are about an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PRODUCT (the low-rent Chromebook version)!

Re: Wacom digitizer confusion, lest you think it’s my own fault for not reading the specs carefully enough, check out this Lenovo pen on Amazon:

There are134 customer questions, most of the “does it work with this Lenovo Thinkpad” variety. And just as often as not, the answers are both yes and no. I gotta say, that’s on you Lenovo, that’s on you.
