I am looking for a very small, thin laptop for away-days allowing me to work away without having to carry along larger (heavier) laptops.
I microsoft solution is of course Microsoft Surface Pro - but how about Lenovo Yoga Book ? The OS is Android, so I fear that it is no-go for Studio or is it?
Any experience?

You'll need Windows, not Android. Even it it had Windows, the Yoga Book has an Atom CPU, which is pretty weedy. I'd want something a little faster than that.

I too have been examining small/light Windows notebooks. I have tried the Dell XPS 13 and the HP Spectre x360 in the shops and liked them both. Both are both well put together, light as a feather, attractively designed and cheaper than a Surface Pro of equal performance. Reviews are excellent.

The Surface Pro has had mixed reviews from owners over the past year. When it works, it's apparently wonderful, but browsing the reviews on Amazon leaves one with the impression that it's a bit of a gamble. Microsoft isn't primarily a hardware company and perhaps that shows with the latest Surface.

If you need a Lenovo Dec 21, 2016

Then you should look for Yoga 910. I have an X1 Yoga and it works really well but it's a pretty expensive platform. The brand new Yoga 910 is a perfect compromise. Apart from that, Dan's choices are excellent. The XPS for the display. The HP it's a gorgeous machine under all aspects.

Screen Dec 21, 2016

Sorry for butting in without an useful contribution for Birthe, but I just wanted to ask whether such a small screen (&lt15.6") is actually OK for everyday work and not too hard on the eyes.
I usually work on a 15.6", coupled with a 22" external monitor, so 13" kind of feels pretty cramped...
