I think I've narrowed it down to either the Thinkpad Yoga 370 (used/refurb'd), or a Yoga 720. My main concern with the 370 is the size of it...I haven't seen one in person but I'm looking at the specs and comparing it to the HP Elitebook X360 1030 G2 I have at work and it just seems so large to use in tablet mode. Granted, it's similar in size to the X230 I had (but thinner/lighter), but for some reason my X230 seemed so much smaller.
I've looked at the 720 (Best Buy carries them locally), but I have a feeling I would really, really miss the Thinkpad keyboard and trackpoint...
Ugh, this is driving me crazy trying to make a decision LOL!

LOOK AT THOSE BEZELS ON THE Y260. Take one good look at them. Look at how big and scary they are! Look at all the screen area you are losing! Scared and convinced on the Y370? Well you should be !
In all seriousness, a 13.3" screen is a huge upgrade over the 12.5". It will be all worth it.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
I just couldn't find a small, lightweight Thinkpad that would fit the bill. I'd love to see them make something in the 11" size but I doubt that will happen seeing as that's not really a "business class" size device.
I know the 720 isn't a lot larger but I got a great deal on the 710.
