    @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

    Hi all, long-time-lurker, first-time-poster here. Recently got an X380 to replace my venerable X230t, and while testing the pen using the latest Wintab Utility drivers (7.5.2.24) I find that one out of approximately every 30 strokes is not registered, particularly when I'm writing or drawing quickly. Worse yet, every few minutes or so the pen stops making strokes altogether for about 10 seconds, and pressing the pen down during this time leads to a fat, laggy stroke appearing randomly on the other side of the screen. This happens regardless of whether my palm is touching the screen, and happens in laptop or tablet orientation. It also happens both with the pen that comes with the laptop and with my Wacom Bamboo Ink. Weirdly, installing the old Wacom Feel drivers (7.3.4-47) on the laptop corrects the problem - I don't encounter any missing or vectoring strokes. But of course that driver isn't compatible with Lenovo Pen Settings, so I can't change the pressure or map the buttons.

    Any fellow X380 owners here encounter this problem? Is this a known Lenovo Thinkpad, or maybe even Wacom AES issue?
