Hit, as in "it's a Thinkpad". Miss, as in a very minor upgrade.
I have yet to see any product codes available from any suppliers, no preorder dates and no prices. Until that changes, I'm not convinced.
The audio, and the new 4K UHD display options are pretty significant, in my opinion (and in my experience). The side-docking capability is also pretty major, for those who need it.
Here are a couple references that may be of use:
Hope this helps a bit.

Thanks for this. It hasn't been sent out in PSREF newsletter yet. I was placing an order for 20 Gen 3 today. Now I can get Gen 4 and not have them go out of support in less than 4 years. So late on this for some reason this year. Now to look forward to Gen 5 with Ice Lake in it next year.

I'm a user of a X1 Lenovo yoga 4th generation and I must say that this computer really disappointed me when taking notes in class. Not only does this machine runs slow at times but it also doesn't work well when taking notes in class. The ink is not recorded sometimes it disappears and when I tried calling customer service and technical service they sent me a new stylist. However the problem was not the stylist is a computer itself. I would never buy Lenovo again because there are other options of your class student that work better and efficiently. These computers are great for work but for taking class notes and doing most of what we may be doing when doing a MBA they may work but you will be disappointed if you want to take avid notes with your pen considerado options.
what's interesting is that when I asked the sales rep he said that they would work fine. That they were killer machines for taking notes but then again cuz it's not the point.
I just wonder if there are other users that are as frustrated as me out there, because obviously you might have found a solution for this computer which I have not. Mine has gone to the repair shop or Depot 4 x and every time he comes back he comes with an issue.
Although I love to hear the new things and the new features coming out I feel that we also have to be very accurate as to what faults these computers have because they tend not to be advertised.
Like I said I still own one but not for long I do hope competition kicks in and brings out new devices that may create a better environment for better and new computers to be developed.

The X1 Yoga 4th Gen was literally released this week. I think maybe you have a different machine. Maybe just a Yoga or a ThinkPad Yoga, Lenovo has several machines with Yoga in the name with very different specs. I have lots of of each generation of X1 Yoga that I support. Generally great machines. If I wanted a tablet for notes taking I would probably go with Surface Pro which is what students at my school have. It is a better pen experience.

I agree with Brian two posts up. This system hasn’t been out long enough to go to the depot four times.. Please delete your post because it’s clearly in the wrong thread!

I know that the touch screen of some laptops made by Lenovo get scratched easily even with the pen that came with the laptops or with Lenovo Active Pen 2.
Is it better to get a screen protector for the X1 Yoga Gen 4? Will screen protector for X1 Yoga Gen 3 be fully compatible with the 4K version of X1 Yoga Gen 4?
