Nice summary. Wish I had seen that days ago while I was shopping. I just ordered the top-of-the-line Yoga 13 for a new software engineer. We'll see how well that works out. It seems to have the best bang for the buck (CPU, memory, SSD).
The'y'll have a desktop too so no compromising on the external screen support limitation most laptops have. They'll use the Yoga for telecommuting.
