    Windows 10 as it is today is not for device under 10".
    MS needs dramatically improve the tablet experience.
    Windows 10 is too much desktop focus OS and MS need offer more balanced between desktop and tablet mode.
    Tablet mode is completely a joke today.
    Too many very useful features and functionality are missing from 8.1.

    You can set the brightness level to off/medium/high, but when it's on a lot of light comes around the keys, especially when you don't look exactly head-on. My TPY12 also forgets the keyboard backlight setting, so you have to manually turn it on every time. The MS approach is just better all around. Less leakage, more brightness levels, remembers setting, turns off when not in use.

    I dont know how it works in W10 with the Thinkpads now but I can reduce brightness like the W8 days on my Surface book by hittin Fn + Del or Fn + Backspace.

    Let me know how it works for you.

    Anyone know if the X1 Tablet is true Thunderbolt 3 or just 3.0 with a Type C connector? This will be my next tablet if it's real Thunderbolt 3 and potentially capable of an eGPU.

    Thunderbolt 3 was never mentioned. This is USB Type C with USB 3.1, including the alternate power mode (so the tablet is charged via USB Type C).

    As far we know until now It's not thunderbolt 3 compatible.
    Only Elite x2 offer that option.
    But unless will see the full details from Lenovo site via full PDF specs we have a hope.

    Have at it (from reddit). Not really conclusive, but no mention of 3.1 or thunderbolt.

    Thanks!
    No mention of thunderbolt 3.
    But there is a good news that officially Lenovo support Windows 8.1 with drivers as I see at the link while MS not with Pro 4 despite I manage to install successfully but with 2-3 bugs because of the lack of drivers support.:)

    Well I think it's time to say goodbye to surface tablet after 2.5 years until MS fix Windows 10 disharmony between desktop and tablet mode as I prefer working on 8.1 than 10 and I can do that flawlessly with thinkpad.
