Intel is updating its business-class convertible notebook lineup with two new ThinkPad Yoga models.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 is a 2.9 pound convertible with a 12.5 inch display, while the ThinkPad Yoga 460 is a 14 inch model that weighs 3.9 pounds.
Both models have displays that can bend over backward to let you hold the computer like a tablet, Intel Skylake processors, and ThinkPad Pen Pro digital pens for writing or drawing on the screen. And Lenovo will sell both the ThinkPad Yoga 260 and 460 in black or silver colors — that’s right, you can get a ThinkPad with a silver body, although black may be the only color available at launch.
The screen size isn’t the only difference between the laptops though. The larger model has a few premium options including optional NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics and an optional 2560 x 1440 pixel display. Oddy the spec sheet says the 14 inch model also only supports up to 8GB of RAM, while the 12.5 inch ThinkPad Yoga can support up to 16GB.
