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.

  1. The 460 would be a near perfect machine for me if not for the max 8GB RAM. Stange that the 260 max RAM is 16GB while the 460 is only 8GB. Why did Lenovo have to botch this one up?

    8GB may be enough now but it won’t be in a couple of years. I bought my 4GB laptop 6 years ago, and 4GB was a lot of memory for a laptop then. About 3 years ago, the memory started maxing out because most web servers nowadays push the load onto the client. Open Task Manager and you will IE, Chrome and Yahoo consuming a lot of memory.

  2. Brad, when posting news on Skylake ultrabooks/convertibles please say if they are, or appear to be, fanless. That is IMO one big plus that Skylake makes possible, but it appears that only some of the new releases this fall will actually be fanless.

  3. Does this model come with spyware in the bios like some of their other models?
