    Do you notice any repeats or weirdness in the digitizer? Like repeated strokes, random pressure drops, or errant touches/strokes no where near the pen tip?

    I have an old Fujitsu T902 Wacom EMR that has that digitizer firmware bug where strokes get repeated -- this is why I'm asking.

    Hunting for Geekbench results for the Yoga 720 reveals a few i5 machines that have 16GB of RAM installed. They show comparable memory bandwidth and performance to other machines. You're right.

    Not at all. That would be an instant disqualification in my book.

    hmm... Apparently the best buy model is different than the Lenovo.com model.

    That is very brave. I didn't see it at BB in Burbank, so I decided to kick back and wait for reviews. Looking forward to yours. The BB price on the 13" seems almost too good ($829 for 256gb and 8gb). This and the HP Spectre x360 (N-Trig) are potential front runners for my next laptop. Would love to hear what you think of the Active Pen 2 compared to N-Trig and overall performance feel (not factoring benchmarks).

    Would someone please remind me how to check for CPU throttling with Aida64?

    [EDIT] Never mind. Figured it out.

    After 15 minutes, core temperatures never exceeded 72 degrees C and zero throttling reported. Is that a meaningful result?

    Depends... does it have still 2 fans (position like the pic) like the dGPU version? If yes, most probably it will never throttle in average use condition.

    The 4K on this thing looks amazing but after a hour I had to call in to return it. Keyboard was shifted to the right hand corner. Causing an issue with the enter key getting stuck because it was rubbing against the chassis. Also the bottom cover was shifted causing a lip. I just wanted to exchange and didn't want to mess with it. Also I like how Lenovo puts a box with a pen logo just to fake you out since its empty. Maybe their intention at one point was to include the pen with it.
