    Of course it's tiny. How else are they going to fit it in the body of the computer?

    My ThinkPad X220t disagrees. But then again, that thing was THICK!

    My definition of "full size" is the Lenovo Active Pen they have for the ThinkPad Yoga 14; that pen looks chunkier than the one in the photo and was comfy to hold, yet plenty thin enough to fit into the base of the device if it actually had a silo for it.

    Yoga 460 14.0": Up to 8GB DDR3L RAM with option for 940M 2GB GPU.
    Yoga 260 12.5": Up to 16GB DDR4 RAM with integrated graphics.

    It can't just be me who finds this strange, right?

    So are these the successors to the Thinkpad Yoga 12 and Thinkpad Yoga 14 or will they continue booth?
    But great to see that they all have a silo now and that they (theoretically ;)) can be configured with fingerprint reader and LTE!

    Edit: The Yoga 460 spec sheet mentions pen support, the 260 not... Never mind, it's mentioned in the text but not in the table.

    They are both shown with their own unique stylus design in the promo images, so you can - relatively - safely assume that both will support Wacom AES.

    I sure hope these new devices will be compatible with the full-sized, battery powered Active Pen. Can't stand drawing with toothpicks!

    If it's anything like the TPY 12, the HD screen model will lack the pen.
