    According to the chat rep today, the Thinkpad Yoga 14" is available for sale but it is EXCLUSIVE TO BEST BUY.

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lenovo-...lack/7067032.p?id=1219668752948&skuId=7067032

    It has the GeForce 940M GFX card too. This is the model number they are selling: 20DM008UUS

    I wonder if this is compatible with the Active pen? I would buy that up in a heart beat, buy 16gb ram, and a 256gb SSD and be set for a while.

    I forgot to send in my pen to Lenovo, and the Best Buy people are as clueless as ever as to whether or not the computer has pen support. I'll be making a trip to Best Buy today to find out for myself if the pen works on this particular model.

    It works! It actually works! I'll be starting with it later tonight and will let you know how it handles Painter, Photoshop and Mypaint tomorrow.

    The appropriate response to any early Lenovo release. :D

    Craig, do you know the link perchance for that pen you bought from lenovo? I deleted that book mark for that pen when I went to the i3 SP3 system.

    Well, gosh darn it! Ain't that a sight long-coming!

    Nice post!

    -Though, one small correction; that's the 14, not the Yoga 15 as mentioned in the video, (which you've probably worked out by now). More for the listeners in our audience. :)

    Downloading Adobe CC now. Had to move closer to the router because apparently the Wifi range on this thing is very unimpressive. Trackpad feels very wonky, there is a delay after moving the mouse with it before you can click with it. Trackpoint is nice though, and the keyboard feels good for typing on.

    Also, does anybody know of any good matte screen protectors? Nothing feels "bad", but I really liked the feel of my X61.

    Yep.

    Derp.
