I would recommend this [Lenovo Yoga 730] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JZKCTMN/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20)

The case is made from aluminum, feels very premium.
Hinges wobble so it is hard to open with one hand and screen turns 360 degree.
Very lightweight at 2.65 lbs.
You can upgrade/replace the storage, but not the ram.

There are two USB Type-C ports (both support TB3) and a headphone jack on the left side and a single USB 3.0 Type-A port on the right side.
No HDMI or SD card reader.
Comes with Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 which is good for day to day usage.

It supports digitizer pen and it has a comfortable grip and two buttons.x

Comes with chiclet keyboard, key travel is quite shallow, the pressure point is not well defined, and the resistance is too small, not nearly as good as the famous Thinkpad keyboard

The trackpad doesn’t have dedicated mouse keys, the surface is smooth and supports Microsoft’s Precision.

The touchscreen is able to detect ten fingers at the same time. It detects inputs very precisely.

Screen is glossy, has good Brightness(but you still might struggle under direct sunlight), and good color coverage as well at 61.38% for RGB and 83.92% for sRGB and panel doesn’t use PWM for brightness regulation.

CPU throttles under long time of heavy usage, but it still more powerful than most other ultrabooks in the market.

Storage is only NVMe (which makes it expensive if you want to upgrade/replace the SSD installed.

Fan noise and coil whine is minimal and not noticeable.

Heat management is very good, and it doesn’t reach the point of being uncomfortable to hold.

Speakers are not very loud and doesn’t have much bass but that is to be expected from a 2 in 1.

Battery life is very good at 7.5 to 9 hours with average usage.
