Although the 12-inch ThinkPad Yoga strongly resembles its predecessor, there is one odd step down: Lenovo is now offering a 1366x768 resolution touch screen option for the unit in addition to keeping the 1920x1080 of the previous generation available.
The 14-inch ThinkPad Yoga also maintains status quo. The only real significant change I could find besides the option for a 512GB SSD was the move to a Broadwell CPU. But maybe that's because Lenovo is now also offering a 15.6-inch ThinkPad Yoga. Think of the new 15.6-inch ThinkPad Yoga as just a bigger ThinkPad Yoga. While the 14-inch ThinkPad Yoga weighs 4.18 lbs., the new 15-inch model is 5.07 lbs. The 15-inch model does have one advantage besides sheer size, though: while the 12 and 14 are limited to 8GB of RAM from the factory, the 15-inch model will have 12GB and 16GB options.
The 12-inch ThinkPad Yoga will start at $1,000 while the two larger variants will start at $1,200. The 12 and 15-inch models will be available in February while the updated 14-inch model won't see daylight until May.
