    Not sure if this warrants its own thread but here:

    ThinkPad Yoga 14 service training course:

    http://download.lenovo.com/lts/RTPW1310/CourseFiles/player.html

    FRU list:

    http://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/tp_yoga_14_fru_list.pdf

    Key points:
    • 14 inch screen, no pen support
    • Haswell-ULV at launch, with Broadwell-ULV to follow? (see FRU list)
    • Dedicated GPU option (nVidia GT 840M)
    • RAM and HDD are user replaceable (although limited to single SODIMM and hence single channel memory)
    This looks absolutely ludicrous as a tablet:

    1.9kg or 4.2 pounds, I guess that's what you get for having a 14" screen. It's actually the same weight as the "Vaio Fit 14 Multi-Flip PC".

    If it had a Wacom pen, I'd get it in a heart beat, and team it with a nice, small 10" atom tablet. I've wanted a big tablet with a dedicated gpu for quite a while. I'd even get this over the Helix, if it had a pen. When will they start offering it as an option?!? Waaahhhhhh....!

    Still lighter than my old Toshiba m400 12.1".

    14" and a dedicated GPU ... it'd be a solid art machine, if it weren't for the lack of pen support.

    When are they ever going to add pen feature to this thing?

    Honestly, is there some unwritten rule: "Thou shalt not have dedicated graphics in a Wacom tablet."

    It's like some evil mastermind purposely concocted it to be the bane of graphic artists from generation to generation...

    It simply does not mention pen, so there is still chance, right?

    There is also no mention of Broadwell in the Lenovo Service Training - so there might still be hope for all people who are hoping for a digitizer...

    Presentation now ongoing. So far only a new Yoga 3 Pro announced. Looks super thin, but the hinge area looks oddly metallic, like they forgot to put a cover on it.

    Very thin, pic below has it folded out. No stylus though.

    Here's that odd metallic hinge.

    Definitely an acquired taste:
