    With the success of the Go, it was inevitable that someone tried to copy it.

    "Up to" Pentium Silver Power and EMMC solid state drive. Just under 2 lbs with keyboard. LTE available. Good to see another 10" 2-in-1 but the execution of gen1 leaves a lot to be desired.

    Here is the Intel spec. page on the Pentium Silver 5030. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/u...-n5030-processor-4m-cache-up-to-3-10-ghz.html Turbo to 3.1ghz? Is this faster than the M3? No multi-threading. UHD 635 Graphics.

    With what we know about the Go2 being able to undervolt and operate in the upper range of its burst speed indefinitely, could this be a decent overclocker?

    There's also a Duet 7i with Ice Lake CPUs. Unexpected, until two weeks ago I thought Lenovo had abandoned this space, with the X1 Tablet 3 being discontinued.

    Full announcement here.

    And from the looks of it, they've slimmed down the whole Ideapad laptop deck into a Surface-style type cover. Nice!

    IdeaPad, so no trackpoint, half height cursor up/down, and no 'tilt up' flap for inclined typing? But otherwise it looks good!

    Major improvement: it's a Bluetooth keyboard. Shortcut key users, rejoice!

    Both 3i and 7i are interesting - BUT WHY NOT PUT THE THINKPAD C940 STICK PEN IN A SILO for heavens sake!

    I'm afraid it is still "If a tree falls in the forest..."
