    After going through a lot of devices, I've come to realize that I'm fine sacrificing added thickness for a good keyboard that's always attached.

    Multiple modes are great for media consumption, and having the keyboard always at the ready is a huge plus (IMO).

    The TPY is just a little too big. I think it would be perfect if Lenovo offered options for slightly smaller models. A TPY in the same footprint as the SP2 or slightly bigger would be amazing.

    Exactly. In the very least trim the fat. The bezel is huge, and there is a lot of space next to the keyboard (one inch on either side). It could definitely be a lot more compact, and still fit a taller screen.

    I wish Lenovo would release their products, full stop. :D

    A 10" isn't my cup of tea but I could see its uses.

    They do ThinkPad Yoga in 11.6in size, it's just that it was built for the educational market and it didn't come with a digitizer. There is also a Chromebook variant too. It's pretty much a ThinkPad version of Yoga 11 in the Pentium Atom variant. http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/11e-series/11e-yoga-windows/

    Edit: It looks like they also brought out a Core M variant, and it cost the same as Pentium Atom variant both with 4gb of ram and 320gb HDD. Really strange.

    ThinkPad 11e is thicker, doesn't have FHD, and no digitizer. No go for me.

    I'd probably get a Yoga 3 Pro if they offered a model with Wacom.

    Hey not everyone here is English , and that's no obscure blog, it's a shop that sells specially to students.
    And what do you think an Active Pen is for?

    Until you can provide a link or document directly from the manufacturer showing use of an active digitizer in that model, my original statement still stands.
