    Below is the form from the forum, but I am really narrowed down to two. I picked up a Yoga 900 at Best Buy. I liked it, but the keyboard could have been better. It has an I7 6560U, 16 GB Ram and a 512 SSD. I kept if for a week and liked it, but read about the Yoga 910 coming out this month.

    I returned the Yoga and picked up a Spectre X360, i7 6500, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD. I like the keyboard better. It looks pretty good, but the bottom on the left hand side gets pretty warm when holding it on my lap.

    Lenovo just released the 910 and I ordered it with an i7- 7500, 16GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, 3800 x something resolution, LED screen. On the HP site, I can order a Spectre X360, i7-6560U, 6GB RAM, OLED screen, 3800 x something resolution. The money for either is roughly the same.

    If the oled panel in the hp is the same as the one In the x1 yoga I would stay away. It has bad ghosting , see anandtech review. They're the only review I've seen mention it... I returned my x1 because of it.
