    That's quite certainly not going to happen - the docks feature native video outputs, how would you do that via USB?

    USB-C is perfectly capable of transporting displayport and HDMI data if the manufacturer implements it properly. Its part of the USB-C Specifications.

    Thats a relief to hear about the 16gb of ram for the 460. Also for a "Professional dock" I find that this onelink+ dock doesnt have many ports. I wonder if it is just limited to the actual bus.

    Wooooow! I just heard about this new Yoga today;
    - Rechargeable pen? Yes please!! I'm done with batteries. I'm guessing it's still Wacom AES?
    - It looks great too, very stylish
    - Skylake, discrete graphics, lots of RAM, good battery life, reasonably priced
    Is this finally the product I've been waiting for?! Or will there be some deal breaker?

    Yes. But, my guess is that you will be waiting for quite some time until it really is a shippable product.

    Am I the only one disappointed that they didn't move to a 3:2 aspect ratio, like the Surface has?

    I wouldn't be so sure on battery life, those figures do not represent real-use situations. Same for the pricing, you're going to be paying X amount more in order to get that excess Ram and a dedicated GPU. By all means look forward to it but "eggs in one basket" and all that.

    Really sticking to the breakfast theme here. On a related note, looks like Wacom EMR on ThinkPads is 'toast'.
