    The keyboard is very interesting on this one. It actually retracts into the frame. On the older model, the keyboard instead was locked by the keyboard frame (which is now gone). Very cool!

    I guess the "feel" when it's used that way won't be different but according to Lenovo this is better in terms of reliability.
    With the keys "extended" in laptop mode, I wonder if they also retract whn you push the lid down? It looks as if otherwise the screen would lay directly on the keys?

    Looks positively awesome, but again I'm disappointed in the lack of brighter screen options. Where's my 400nit Yoga?

    I also wonder if the reported weights are correct. The yoga 370 is listed at 3.03lbs. I expected the X1 to be significantly lighter than the 370, but it's basically the same. Wasn't the X1 supposed the be the very lightest by a large margin, at the cost of less user access to the internals?

    Edit on May 3 after the release of the Surface Laptop:

    Surface Laptop advantages
    - maybe price, but not by much
    - windows Hello camera
    - furry keyboard
    - bright screen (allegedly)
    - aspect ratio 3:2, vs. 16:9 on the X1Y

    X1 Yoga 2017 advantages
    - pen silo, pen included
    - full 360 degree hinge, so you can actually ink..
    - Wacom AES over NTrig (yes?)
    - 3x USB3 as opposed to one on the SL
    - 2x thunderbolt3 likely with eGPU support, as opposed to zero on the SL
    - HDMI
    - microSD
    - ethernet
    - fingerprint reader
    - OLED option
    - trackpoint

    Any new Pen tech in these or is it the same as the current generation? Any guesses as to first availability date based on previous launches? Thinking maybe I'll sell mine now and wait for the new OLED one...

    Lenovo says they improved the integrated pen:

    "We developed an improved ThinkPad Pen Pro for 2017 using a new soft elastomer tip. With bigger friction on glass, the pen recreates a more natural writing experience for users. "

    This looks like a great machine but ,like Joe said ,what the heck is Lenovo up to with poor display brightness?
    Even with OLED? Gimme a break! So disappointing.

    Very surprised that they're introducing Iris graphics!
