saw this .............@ their PUBLIC REVEAL ..... in NYCThinkpad Tablet 2
= WINDOWS 8 version
I only thing I liked (loved) was the THINKPAD KEYBOARD ... and it has THE RED DOT !! WOOHOO
thats enough to make ME BUY ONE , there and than !!
Beware, it is not a trackpoint, but an optical trackball.
I haven't bought one, so I don't know how devastating the change in interface actually is.
My Touchpad-oriented associates whom I've converted to Thinkpads, all seem to use the "pencil eraser thing" as if it were a trackball, repeatedly nudging it over the top, instead of holding it for accelerated motion, so maybe Lenovo was on to something.
