    Lenovo has 7 days left to launch. Although I'm betting $20 it's delayed.

    12.5" 16:9 display.

    Accepts stylus input.

    53 Watt Hour battery pack.

    Pretty; has that nice watchband hinge.

    $1100 - $1300 depending on your configuration.

    Also, only 999 g (2.2 lbs), very thin, fanless Core M, and 12.5" QHD display (Yoga 260 only offers FHD max.).

    The biggest disadvantages compared with the ThinkPad Yoga 260 are the soldered RAM (max 8 GB), and likely the lackluster keyboard compared to the ThinkPad. Also, no pen silo, and Core M of course is much less powerful then Core i7 CPUs in the ThinkPad.

    Who's going to buy one of these and be the TPCR guinea pig?

    It's a toss-up for me between this and the TPY 260. It's going to be my main mobile machine come August when I start vet school, and I know I'd be just fine with Core M if I went the 900s route. I was fine with Broadwell M in the Portege Z20t, and I doubt there'll be anything computationally demanding I'll need to run. I have a desktop at home that can handle anything.

    I had the original TPY 12 and I liked it, but it was too thick and heavy. I've used a bunch of detachables, but at the end of the day, the keyboard is just another thing to manage. At 2.2 lbs with a keyboard always attached and ridiculously thin, the 900s seems pretty sweet.

    Decisions, decisions.

    Probably repeating myself for the 20th time, but if money is not an issue, at 2.8lbs the X1 Yoga is also very attractive. Silo and TrackPoint, and larger screen.
