    Will be interesting to see the reviews of this - not something I would usually think about but that has a lot of things going for it. Such a high res 12" screen sounds simultaneously needless and awesome, perhaps leaning towards the latter

    I do wish companies would stop tagging the word "convertible" onto any laptop with a touchscreen and a wide-opening hinge. And inventing usage "modes" to try to sound innovative. I mean, what on earth is tabletop mode? How are presentation and audience modes different? Don't you need an audience for a presentation, and to present to an audience?

    Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 (Bendy & Pokey Laptop) 16:9 aspect ratio. Do MS and Google have exclusive deals for using 3:2 aspect displays?

    i WANT an UNINSTALL BUTTON to get rid of Cortana and Bing search engine,
    I don't want software imposed on me, I want to be able to uninstall some of the crap win 10 forces on users, I use google search engine when Microsoft fixes the bug that prevents us from making it the default,
    ALSO I don't want edge browser, I use I.E.11 and if you go to add ones then the remove Bing button is greyed out, yes I have tried various fixes to remove but to no avail.
    Thinking of going back to win7 till the bugs in win 10 are sorted.

    Open the Search bar, click the settings button, turn off Cortana and Bing integration.

    Using a Thinkpad Joga,, the 'alternate mods' are useful (even if I can't remember what arbitrary names Lenovo have called them). Having the keyboard upside down and flat on your lap and the screen folded back around to face you is great when used on a train. Standing it on the 'ends' so the hinge points up makes it nice and stable for use when lying on a sofa or bed without the base vents being blocked by lying on a soft material (without needing an extra laptop tray or large book or whatever to put it on).
