A side note.......I googled this record and found it was on Ebay. I also found the SACD that I bought for $30 for sale on Ebay for $150! It's still available for $79 if you know where to look. 

I hope some poor sucker didn't buy it. 

But still..........I haz an investiment.

The Yoga 3 is even thinner and lighter. So far I give it a 9. The keyboard is good, but not as good as the thinkpad.  The screen is fantastic when free of fingerprints (rare).  It also introduces another recent trend - YAFPA (yet another freeking power adapter). But they finally got this one right. It's tiny and light and uses a modified USB connection to charge the laptop. So you get a 2 in one port on the machine (extra USB when you aren't charging), and the adapter doubles as a USB charger for travel. The only problem with it is that it's only about 40W. So you can't do the neat boost charge that the thinkpads do.  Battery life is about 6 hours with 'normal' use, so it's good that the charger is small and light.

And I've sent it back. The first one died outright, the second one was 'quirky' and developed a bluescreening issue. I had a few days left on the return window so I read a lot of the forums. The carbon X1s are either good or horrid. I was 2 for 2 on horrid. Too bad, it was a wonderful set of kit and specs.

I replaced it with the new Yoga Pro 3.  This is pretty spiffy too. It feels a bit more flashy (silver, orange or gold!), the keyboard is about 90% as good, and no nubbin. Also no fingerprint reader-which I'll really miss. And the next thirty days starts now...

Perk of the job. I need something light, fast and portable. This is all three with a brilliant screen.  I also didn't realize how much I missed both the IBM (yeah, yeah, lenovo...) keyboard and the track point nubbin. I think my WPM is up a solid 15%. I'm working on the control with gestures stuff now - cool.

Did you get a solid-state disk?  They are brilliant - everything loads quickly and the battery lasts forever.

Yeah, I read several of those after hearing that this thing would probably kill me. The harmful stuff is closer to the UV range (big surprise). This one puts out light at about 470nm and no UV.  This is also a frequency present in fluorescent lights, and there is plenty of history with those.

 
If its 470nm and up, only, then you should be fine.  This awareness is one of the newest discoveries in eye health and lens technology.  A new resin for lenses has also been developed that would not require the special coating(s).  At our advanced age its not that big of a deal, however, the risk resumes after cataract surgery as the implants do not block these wavelengths ... yet.

This is a big deal however for anyone 40 and under, especially children who will have their entire lives spent looking at screens that project this light spectrum.
