I just got my X1 Yoga yesterday, and for the most part it's quite nice. I've got a bit of an issue with the touchpad though. Has anybody else noticed that it's a bit "floaty"? With just the slightest touch (i.e. even less weight than typical usage), the whole touchpad surface will sink maybe 1mm or less, until it's flush with the bottom groove. When I let my finger up, the touchpad surface will bounce back until it's flush with the palm rest. When it does this, it produces a slight "thunk" and sounds as if the entire palm rest is making a clicking sound. I'm not talking about when I press down to click either -- that works as expected. Is this supposed to be normal? I use an E450 thinkpad at work, and the touchpad surface is rock solid and does not shift position.
I took a video to illustrate what I mean and attached it here in the zip file (since a mp4 file is not a supported file format for uploading)

I watched your video and I don't have the issue you are experiencing. Believe me, I have got three x1 yoga with different spec and version. The quality varies, depending on your luck (seriously). If I were you, I would request a replacement.

So I guess based on the replies, the touchpad is supposed to be solid, which is what I assumed as well based on using the E450 at work... After waiting through a delay to get this shipped, this is a bit disappointing...
