    "Aside from this upgrade in the screen-size, the Yoga 370 ditches the proprietary Onelink+ standard"

    YES!! :)

    The good:
    - Universal Thunderbolt docking possible
    - Pen still in silo! Let's see how many buttons it has, and if they can be easily found by touch.
    - Smaller side bezels than usual.
    - Fingerprint reader option. The TPY12 didn't include this.
    - Weight starting at 3.03 lbs. Not bad, although in the past they often announced wildly incorrect weight numbers

    The bad:
    - Dim screen. 300 nits is not going to cut it in some situations, and it's way lower than the competition
    - Screen aspect ratio is way too large (16:9 again), resulting in a giant bottom bezel. Why Lenovo, why?
    - Starting price $1264, pre tax. Getting the system in an acceptable configuration is all but guaranteed to push the total over $2000..
    - No more volume buttons along the edge. On my TPY12 I use those regularly when in 'media mode'. Hopefully the new W10 volume slider in the action center will do.
    - No Windows Hello camera support from what I can tell

    The weird:
    - "Diagnostic-Codes: To make troubleshooting easier, the new ThinkPads have various audio signals. Lenovo says that there will be a smartphone app, which then recognizes the individual audio-signals." Would be interesting to know why they went with audio. Maybe it works outside the OS?

    See also this comparison with the ThinkPad Yoga 12.

    @JoeS :
    The size. I travel a lot and would even consider a 170 the better option.
    That together with the dell xps13 infinity display, drool

    @FZelle

    the Yoag 370 is basically the Yoga 260 with a few modifications and a 13" display. Sounds like the ideal machine for you.

    nope, still to big.
    Even the Surface 4 is to big for working on the plane (for me).
    That's why I would love the Mi Pad 3 rumor about being 9.7" Core-M.
    That would be the right size.
    After the bad impression of the Teclast X5 ( no video-out over usb-c ) I'm now waiting for either
    the MiPad 3 or the Cube Mix Plus.
