    I think the Yoga is a little weird since the keyboard is exposed when folded back. But the Lynx looks pretty solid. Kind of a bummer that it uses an Atom processor.

    In the same vein that (current-gen) Celeron processors are basically re-branded i3s, I imagine the new Atoms are far superior than what they used to be.

    Tablet + Bluetooth keyboard = win

    Convertible laptop = lose

    Honestly, I'm disappointed. Lenovo usually has some good ideas, but in this case it really looks like a re-hash with a new OS. Particularly the "Twist." That form factor has been tried and tried again by various manufactures. The public just doesn't want it. To complicated. The Lynx is a good idea, but the specs are a non-starter for $750. They tease with the mini hdmi and sd ports but then saddle you with only 64gb max internal storage. That's not enough to do any production work so IMO it's a consumption device, and if that's all it is there are way cheaper alternatives already on the market.

    I never fancy Lenovo..that brand has some very serious QC issues but not as bad as HP. I would rather go for Sony or Dell any day!

    THINKPAD TWIST wont make that far or big, only in corporate world, as in today convertibles are old!, not relevant enough when we have tabs. icon_confused.gif

    IDEAPAD will land its hands on aunties, housewife, straight girls but not lesbians. icon_neutral.gif

    IDEAtab LYNX would sell pretty well! among anyone icon_cool.gif <---Smart buy!
