    X380 Yoga basically TPY 370 quad-core update. TB3 (& WWAN) still present. Limited to 16GB RAM - whether slotted or soldered yet unknown. Hopefully the display is bright and semi-matte.

    L380 Yoga is another interesting machine. Slightly heavier, it comes with semi-matte FHD display of same size (we won't know how bright it is, until reviewed), 2x RAM slots (32GB RAM, yay!), 2x USB-C (sadly, no TB3 - and no WWAN either).

    I'm with you on the display. The 370 was already close to my perfect machine, and a brighter screen combined with these faster CPUs would make it pretty much ideal for me.

    Lenovo Lebanon (of all places) finally has the X380 product page up. Weight starts at 3.1 lbs, basically the same as the X1 Yoga. Display only lists 1080p, so I fear this will be one of the dim ones (270nits).

    Its a 300 nit panel according to Lenovo's datasheet.

    Do you have a link to the datasheet? Because even my best google tricks can't seem to locate it.

    Awesome, thanks. With a link like that I can't blame google for not finding it outright. :)

    Added a screencap to the first post. So now that we have those specs, this is remarkably close to the X1 Yoga. Same CPU, same integrated GPU, Same SSD/RAM options, same weight (!), and same display brightness on FHD models.

    Main differences between X380 and X1 Yoga:
    - starting price $430 lower ($1460 vs $1890)
    - 1mm thicker
    - Screen diagonal 0.7" smaller
    - no high end HDR screen option
    - one fewer TB3 port
    - 13.6h vs 15h stated battery life

    Given that the X380 is the budget ThinkPad Yoga option (edit - relatively speaking :D) it's beginning to feel like the X1 Yoga is stagnating.

    Put another way, X1 was supposed to be top of the line: impossibly thin, impossibly light, impressively fast, and impressively expensive. Turns out these days you can get almost the exact same performance AND dimensions with an X380 for about 25% less money.
