    Don't forget to check out the T460p. Quad-core + discrete graphics, although the GPU won't be as good as the Quadro in the P50/70 for Solidworks.

    You realize the fourth gen Carbon FINALLY arrives with a FHD IPS screen?

    I just hope Lenovo makes it easy to set up dual drives in the T460p without having to resort to workarounds. A PCIe SSD and 2.5" SSD would be a good combo, but based on past experiences (T440p) I'm not very hopeful, especially because there's now no ultrabay to fall back on.

    From the official photos it also looks like the T460p has the same crummy build as the T440p... including the flexy lid that doesn't close properly and causes appalling light bleed on the panel.

    Anyone know how the GeForce 940MX compares to the Quadro M1000M for video editing/rendering, photoshopping and similar tasks? I'm not interested in gaming performance.

    I just went into Best Buy to see the Yoga 460 in person and I noticed something. The branding on the laptop was Yoga 14, not 460 like how the 260 is labeled. I know it's probably still the same laptop, but this whole thing still has be confused if I should wait or just go buy that one at Best Buy.

    I’m in a similar boat as you, but with a T410. I’ll be waiting for the T460s as WQHD and NVMe SSD are not options on the T450s and these are important to me.

    Are the battery still removable on the X and T models?

    T460(p), T560 and X260, yes.

    T460s, no, you have to remove the bottom cover first before your can exchange the battery.

    Personally, I'd take the L460. I don't wish to spend that kind of money, nor do I need that level of mobility.

    The BestBuy version of the Yoga 460 is branded as a Yoga 14. It is an exclusive model to BB. The configurable version with some additional hardware will be out by next month at the latest.

    Well, I've been waiting for Lenovo to build something remotely close to the MacBook Pro Retina. Looks like the 4th gen X1 and T460s might be worthly of consideration.

    Waiting to see the price for the config I want.
