Lenovo unveils two new Thinkpad Yoga premium Windows 10 convertibles
Lenovo has kicked off its IFA 2015 announcements with a pair of new premium, business targeted convertibles with Windows 10.
The new Thinkpad Yoga comes with 6th-generation Intel Skylake chips and will be available in two sizes. The Yoga 260 has a 12.5-inch display while the Yoga 460 comes in at 14-inches. And both support Lenovo's WRITEit software for writing on the display.
Specs wise, here's what we know so far:

The two are pretty close together when it comes to hardware, and given the price our only real critique would be offering a less than Full HD display at all. Especially at close to $1000. Both also come with the rechargeable Thinkpad Pen Pro and as we already mentioned, Lenovo's WRITEit software.
The larger model specifically mentions Carbon Fiber when discussion what it's made of, while the smaller does not. Either way we're excited to see new, Windows 10 toting Yogas from Lenovo. The convertible isn't for everyone but when you factor in the specs on offer plus the integrated pen, the new Thinkpad Yoga is one to consider.
We'll be getting a much better look at these in Berlin at IFA in the coming days, so stay tuned to Windows Central for more.
