    Interesting. The article starts with "The ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga would be a high-end convertible with a metal build - unusual for a ThinkPad laptop." Except the X1 Yoga just transitioned to aluminum casing. Still somewhat unusual I guess, but definitely not new.

    Another quote: "It will be the thinnest ThinkPad laptop yet, with a body completely made out of metal. Judging from the pictures, it looks like the screen will have a 3:2 aspect ratio, though this is not confirmed yet." Let's hope that this thinness is accompanied by a low weight, AND a large battery. (prepares to be disappointed on both fronts)

    TCO confirms the 3:2 screen once again - 2256 x 1504 is a 3:2 resolution.

    Well look at that, a 2.54 lbs X1 Yoga, frickin' finally! Half a pound less than the previous few generations, which always came in around 3.05 lbs.

    Plus a 450 nit brightness is above average for Lenovo, and good enough for me. The 3:2 aspect ratio will finally get rid of that giant lower 'chin' that all X1 Yoga's used to have. 2256 x 1504 is also good enough, nice.

    And as you say, 44.5 Wh might work, but it's 10 Wh less than my X1 Yoga 3rd gen. I guess that's the price to pay for the weight loss. The uSD reader is still AWOL, but at least they kept the 3.5mm headphone jack. Pretty nice overall. Good thing it doesn't come with an OLED screen, or I might have had to consider it. :p

    No, that was surprising for me as well, I guess in the end, Lenovo had to choose between smaller chin or thinner chassis. And they chose thinner chassis to make it more usable as a tablet. If you look at the space above the keyboard, they could have easily cut that down. But they needed the room for the components.

    4:3 is gonna be hard to source. :vbbiggrin:

    Huh, good point, you're totally right! Let's hope they manage to shave more off the chin for the next version.

    , "This is visible when looking at the much lower weight of the X1 Titanium Yoga (1.15 kg) compared with the X1 Yoga (1.39 kg)" and 3:2 screen, ooff that is going to be one tough pick with all these good 2-1 laptops coming out.
