Which one should I get?

I'm leaning towards the Thinkpad.. just trying to wrap my head around not having an ethernet port and having to use a usb hub for more ports.

I'd go with the thinkpad personally. 2 USB ports would be plenty for me though (mouse, USB->Ethernet dongle), not sure what your usage is like. If you need to attach multiple drives you can just grab a powered hub.

Yeah, I'd also go with the Thinkpad, probably.

Use a bluetooth mouse to save a USB port

hp warranty support is a lot better than Lenovo

do you use laptop docks at work? the lack of usb ports on the lenovo wont be a problem if you use a dock but not sure if the ThinkPad yoga has dock support off the top of my head

I have fix a lot more HP laptops than Lenovo's. I would say go for the lenovo, better resolution and smaller size for easier portability.

Starting to sound like a no brainer. Plus, warranty is irrelevant since my work replaces any IT equipment that stops working.

Thanks peeps.

i5 processor, 8GB of ram, and an intel HD graphics card, can someone tell me what the point of having those specs are.

Personally I'd go for the thinkpad, due to it being lighter and more portable.
