    Nope - I still haven't found anything that meets my spec yet. :^(

    syntax? if I want to search D:\kaplan, I open a window for that folder. in the top right is a search box. whatever you search will search that directory and the subdirectories.

    so if I open a window for computer, it'll search all my local drives. if I open a window for C:\windows\, it'll search windows and all its subdirectories.

    if you're asking just to search D:\kaplan and not its subdirectories, I'm not sure. but you can go to details view and see only files in that D:\kaplan directory

    I received a LENOVO YOGA 13 for Christmas. I love it. The hybrid works. The laptop configuration is just as good as any laptop that I've used. The tablet config takes some getting used to--or maybe it's Windows 8...All in all I'd recommend it.

    The Yoga looks tempting I agree, but I'm holding out for 1080p resolution, a built in stylus, pressure sensitivity and possibly a larger screen although I dont want to go beyond 1.5Kg...

    Out of interest, how fast does it come back to life from 'hibernation' mode?
    Also which mode do you end up using it mostly - Laptop or Tablet?

    P.S. Meanwhile I notice that Sony announced upgrades to their T-Series range at CES 2013, for release "in the Spring". I have my eye on the 15inch but I fear it will be too heavy for me.

    It's very quick to come back from sleep mode--less than 2seconds. I use laptop mode mostly. But use tablet mode when reading using the Kindle app

    Bill - How are you getting on with the resolution on your screen? Do you already wear reading glasses? Have you had to increase the text DPI in Windows?

    I am planning to hold out until Lenovo (finally!) provide a Full HD (1080p) version of the Yoga 13 - do you think it will be a mistake to have such high DPI on a 13" device?

    Do you think going higher resolution i.e. Full HD would work for you?

    Also out of interest have you changed the Windows "Textsize DPI" ?

    No, not at all. It's honestly recommended even by Microsoft to up the DPI on a touchscreen as needed, even the Surface Pro's DPI is at 150 percent. I'm working on a Surface RT right now and I bumped up the DPI to 125 percent and I find it to be MUCH more ideal to poke.

    But on such a high resolution touch display, I'd probably even go to 175-200 percent DPI increase. I know on a REALLY high definition touch display, 150% works but that was a 27 inch screen, not a 13 inch. When you have high resolution and a small screen, things are kind of small, so you need to up the DPI. I think that's actually how apple's retina display functions...

    Ah-ha.

    This is seriously interesting because elsewhere online people keep telling me that if you increase the Windows Textsize DPI, that all manner of things start to go wrong. Text is cut off in the middle buttons... function buttons e.g. Submit buttons can even disappear.
    This appears to be true of both websites AND applications.

    And the above is certainly true of WindowXP and Windows7. (Although I am happy to accept the compromise of 125% increase in DPI with its nicely bigger text and only slightly screwed up layouts/button visibility etc). In fact in my favourite illustration program (Xara Designer Pro X) people in the forum have been rather ganging up on me saying whatever you do DONT change the Windows Text DPI. But I have to because the text size is too often painfully too small... on all my computers!

    But are you saying it works differently in Windows 8?
