    @cutterline waiting for L380Y review, yeah. Lesser battery capacity and lack of WWAN are somewhat disappointing, though, and it seems to have PWM too - might as well wait for 390.

    Yoga L380 review is out

    Screen is the same as X380 but has different PWM. It's pretty much on how you value TB3, battery power, and future RAM upgrade.

    I dislike how they make the mini ethernet port a thing.

    If they would just released this as a 15 inch device I’d be perfectly happy with the limitations of he cheaper device. I need a trackpoint and a pen, but I’d like it to be much bigger than 13 inches. Lenovo released that size with the 720, but they just won’t do it with the Thinkpads yet. Not really sure why.

    They had a 15" Thinkpad Yoga, but I don't think it was a success – otherwise, they wouldn't have canceled this series.

    That’s true- although it never featured pen support.

    But they actually sell a 15” Yoga now with pen support. It seems so weird not to have a 15” Thinkpad counterpart to the consumer line (as I need a trackpoint as well). Particularly as other manufacturers are now pushing into the 15” penabled convertible space.

    Probably too niche of a market. 15+" is already nearing mobile workstation , in that case, you can just use a proper keyboard etc. 720 is for creators, casual, and alike which mostly stationary and thinkpad is more for business and military spec which is more mobile. Most of the market of thinkpad user probably doesn't like/need this form factor.

    Just hope they can make a breakthru at display, weight, or battery. Maybe we will one day see convertible pen thinkpad 15 and above
