    PSREF is out and guess what? They are sticking to the tradition, 4k 300 nits :D
    Also, they can give you pcie 3.0 x4 on M.2 SSD but not on TB.

    While I would love more nits and better battery life, 100%, I do have to admit I'm generally very happy with my Thinkpad Yoga 14. I use it outdoors from time to time and it does the job- as long as the program I'm using is black and white, like Sketchup. That's generally easy. There are so many other benefits to a Thinkpad, I live with the less than superbright screen. Build quality is excellent, sound quality ain't bad, love the keyboard, I love a trackpoint, and it supports a pen and has a charging silo for the supercapacitor pen. Would it be nice if they upped it back up to 400 nits, the way the Thinkpad Yoga 12 was? Yes. Yes it would. But all laptops are tradeoffs.

    Not missing much, unless your Bulgarian is better than mine. She sits on a couch with the back of the Yoga facing the camera for nearly the entire clip.

    She uploaded a new video, but it's still in Bulgarian. Anyway I posted it as a joke but I wasn't making fun of her specifically, just making fun of the fact that it's in Bulgarian and I have no idea what it says. It's also funny that the first video review of this product is in Bulgarian.

    Just initiated a return of my XPS fhd for horrendous ghosting. Can't believe IPS ghosting that bad is still a thing. Really hoping the 4k screen on this yoga is decent cause that's a good price.
