    Unfortunatly, I have no informations on this one. :vbeek: But if the TP Yoga 14 stays with the integrated buttons, this might apply for all new Yogas.

    My guess is, we will know more after CES.

    I didn't read your post as a "criticism" -- to me, it was kind of condemn with no reasoning behind. Just read the initial post once again:
    So, I respectfully disagreed by providing insight into use cases I have with trackpoints & trackpads. That's it.

    Another interesting finding: pro-keyboard is slimmer but almost two times havier:
    Code:
    Dimensions (W x D x H)
    
    Tablet only: 301.1 x 192.5 x 9.6 mm
    Tablet & Ultrabook Keyboard: 301 x 215.7 x 25.4 mm
    Tablet & Ultrabook Pro Keyboard : 301.1 x 213.3 x 20.2 mm
    
    
    Weight
    
    Tablet only: 795g
    Ultrabook Keyboard: 560g
    Ultrabook Pro Keyboard2: 900g

    Nice use of the code snippet tool. :) So if we add accidental damage and WWAN we're up to $3000 for a fanless Core-M product with a fixed angle no-trackpoint keyboard and an awkward screen aspect ratio. Win!

    Believe it or not, Lenovo thinks so! See images attached.

    Oh boy, so we're back to the 'good old days' of tablet PCs...

    Lenovo has now officially dethroned Fujitsu in super-priced slates. I just hope Fujitsu doesn't try a return salvo by further neutering their Q and T lines.

    This is offtopic here but I can't resist to share the finding though ;)

    TPY14 will have both buttonless trackpad and 3+2 touchpad, depending on the setup -- see the parts below:
    Code:
    00HN627 N 14 W Palmrest ASM W/O FPR,black
    00HN629 N 14 W Palmrest ASM W/O FPR,Silver
    00HT613 N Palmrest ASM,3+2 W/FPR,BLK
    00HT614 N Palmrest ASM.3+2 w/o FPR,BLK
    00HT615 N Palmrest ASM,3+2 w/o FPR,SLV
    This finding makes me wonder whether TPY12 will have the 3+2 touchpad option too. Most likely, yeah.
