    Both TPY260 and TPY370 contain display EDID list in BIOS. AFAIU putting a non-whitelisted display will result in lack of brightness control.

    Which apparently means Extended Display Identification Data. I learn something new every day! :)

    Even if that is the case: So far, the problem with the brightness control has only been reported on Tx50 models (so the Broadwell Thinkpad Yoga 12 would be affected). On newer machines, it seems that even screens not in the EDID list have brightness control.

    I bought the OLED version and the screen went dark from the first day and I had to sent it to RMA. I see a lot of people complaining about Lenovo products (Lneovo thinkpad X1 Yoga has a rating of 3/5 in Lenovo website and some other models). The Thinkpad models are so good in design but 2 things upset me about Lenovo: we will wait forever until they release the product and second product quality issues in the long run. I really hope they fix the latter and for the release date they are already late they said initially Jan and now is Feb and no news yet. I hope they change my mind about Lenvo otherwise Im better off to buy a Microsoft Surface Book 2 eventhough its expensive but I know it works.

    * after half a year of firmware updates.. :D

    But yeah, agreed on the delayed launches, those are annoying. There's still no product page for the X380 on their US website, that's just nuts. Also, welcome to the forum.

    Pricing about as expected: $2740 for the top end model pre tax. That's exactly what I would pay for the loaded SB2 13.5 after 10% edu discount.

    This is my perfect machine minus the Spectre/Meltdown mitigation performance hit (right?) and the current silly pricing on TB3 docks. Patience is a virtue.. (glances over to wallet)
