Hello Omar-IT,

We understand you wan to know whether your Lenovo* Yoga Pro can use Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 and the difference between this adapter and the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260. We will be more than glad to help you with this information. Let's begin talking about the changes you want do with in your Lenovo* Yoga Pro. It comes with an Intel® Wireless-N 7260 which is a single band adapter as you can check here: http://ark.intel.com/products/75174/Intel-Wireless-N-7260 ARK | Intel® Wireless-N 7260

Before changing the adapter, consider the information below:

Intel does not support this kind of integration which is replacing the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) adapter for any other Intel® Adapter as the new adapter may not be in conformance to your computer manufacturer system. When Lenovo* or any other manufacturer buys our adapters, they modify them in order to attend their standards such as voltage, features that may be added or removed and only Lenovo is entitled to provide the details and the list of validated and certified adapters that are compatible with your system. Although the two adapters you have mentioned are excellent, they may not deliver what you want due to possible compatibility issues so please we highly recommend that you contact Lenovo. Please bear in mind that wireless hardware installation and use is subject to regulatory approval by your country and region. Furthermore, Intel® Adapters for laptops are meant to be installed by OEM technicians on certified systems only. Check the articles available in the links below as they contain important information.
