    It may not be 10", but it sure is fanless and very light - just 2.2 lbs / 999 g.

    The 900s is the smaller 12.5" version of the Yoga 900. Its based on Core M CPUs instead of Core i processors. Available in March, also avalable with Active Pen! Available in Silver and Gold.

    While I'm sure it will be fine for simple note-taking, I'm a bit surprised that Lenovo hasn't kept the Core i processors in order to give some oomph for artist software...

    This looks really great, but no silo, and no trackpoint. Otherwise a really nice machine. Lenovo is kicking butt this CES.

    About ****ing time!

    I never buy new machines, but I may actually buy one of these new.

    I was perfectly content with Core M5y71, so an M7 will be great.

    Hope it's Wacom AES.

    How is no one else excited about this? The last time I purchased a new computer was my old ThinkPad T400 back in the day, but I'm buying this new for sure.

    Guess I'll be going back to 12.5 inches.

    ^ This is exactly the reason most of us who have used Lenovo machines are just "meh" about it. I think most of us are Thinkpad users who love that little red trackpoint and Thinkpad Keyboard.

    The silo is another reason.

    I'm also a bit surprised that this thread is so quiet. This thing looks incredible. Super light weight, fanless yet pretty powerful with core-M. Looks really great to me, minus that trackpoint/keyboard/silo issue. It doesn't have OneLink+ but I assume one could hook this up to a USB type-C compatible dock for efficient connection to at least one high res external monitor and ethernet, right?

    I would be more excited if it was under the ThinkPad brand as I have owned(technically still do) a Yoga RT, and the ThinkPad Tablet(the n-trig based Android one) and know what services is like. ThinkPad service blows the doors of IdeaPad/consumer service, by a mile.

    Some demo scribbles with the pen (at about 1 min in). Zero detail, but it does show that it works. Edit: at the end of the video it's mentioned that the device will be $1099. Pretty steep for core m.

    I really don't need a spec powerhouse. I don't need connectors to external displays because I have a beastly m-ITX desktop and dual monitor set-up at home, I don't need a trackpoint. All I've been looking for for the longest time is a super lightweight convertible laptop with an active digitizer.

    Hopefully this is it. I know the keyboard won't be as awesome as a ThinkPad, but if it's better than the keyboard that I used on the Z20t, I'll be more than happy. ‎
