    The new X1 Yoga 5th gen is available to order, see this link.

    It looks like a minor spec update from the 4th gen model, see here. There are now 10th gen Intel CPUs and Wifi6. Still only Intel UHD graphics. Warning, they still sell some of these with 300 nits brightness, which is pretty dim. 400nits lower resolution and 500nits high resolution models are available though.

    This machine is the new all-metal casing version which was well received on the 4th gen.

    FYI, 4th gen models now ship with Intel 10th gen chips, so it appears only an upgrade to wifi6 distinguishes the 5th from 4th, unless I'm missing something. Strange to call it "5th gen" with such a minor change, doesn't even qualify as a refresh.

    Hey, if the result is a 45% discount on the 4th gen, by all means call it a new generation! :)
