anyone heard anything new? i'm not seeing any reference to the 8gb model on the webpage at all now...
...just pure speculation on my part: But might this beefier model be held back a bit to coincide with the software release that will finally bring pdf annotation (last thread I saw had comments from lenovo support of Oct as target date for that release)?

Here's the transcript from a chat with a sales rep a moment ago:
[omitted]. (9/5/2019, 1:23:53 PM): Hello, thanks for contacting Lenovo Sales. My name is [omitted] (Rep ID: --------85). At the conclusion of this chat, there will be a brief, two-question survey, scoring from 1-10 where 10 is the best. Please be sure to ask about our flexible payment options!
Me (9/5/2019, 1:25:04 PM): Hi! I've been interested in a yoga book c930 for awhile, and thought I'd actually get one after the announcement in the Spring of a model with 8gb RAM and a larger SSD. When will that be available to order?
[omitted]. (9/5/2019, 1:25:05 PM): How can I best assist you with your purchase today?
[omitted]. (9/5/2019, 1:26:49 PM): we do not have a confirmed date but I would estimate closer to the holidays
Me (9/5/2019, 1:27:16 PM): Ah. okay. thank you!
Guess we'll see if that sticks, huh?
On the other hand, it does fit with my earlier speculation that a model with increased RAM would come out about the same time (or immediately following) the fall release of the software update allowing for PDF annotation on the e-Ink screen (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Yoga-Book-C930/New-Yoga-Book-Release/m-p/4512259/highlight/true#M998).
Ach well. I've been making do with my old 11e as a portable beater for a while... guess i can go a while longer, eh?
Did you actually throw in the towel californian?
