Re: Lenovo CES 2020

X13 appears on some obscure bit of lenovo.com, but not the main X-series page yet : https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/coming-soon/ThinkPad-X13-Intel-/p/22TPX13X3N1 I imagine it's indistinguishable externally from an X390. Specs include this : Dimensions (H x W x D) FHD Non-Touch Display: 312mm x 217.2mm ...

Re: Lenovo CES 2020

What's an X12 ? Well, obviously it would be a 12" X-series machine, but I haven't heard anything about this one. This page mentions it, https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/commercial-notebook/thinkpad/c/22TP along with X13, T14, T15. Then again this page also has a category for "Wine - Do Not Use" whatever...

Re: T25 appears to be sold-out in US lenovo web store

I had saved this text from somewhere, can't remember if it is from this forum or elsewhere (I assume it's accurate ?) : Historically, ThinkPads had 2.5 mm key travel (T420 keyboard). This was reduced to 2.1 mm with the T440(s), then 1.7 mm with the T460s. T490s still has 1.7 mm. The only models with...

X1C G8 at notebookcheck and anandtech. Not sure much significant has changed apart from CPU refresh (not sure, notebookcheck says CPUs are new, anandtech says they're the same generation as before). They moved the X1 logo on the lid so it looks a bit neater.

Imagine a Thinkpad X13 with that screen and bezels, an edge-to-edge keyboard, trackpoint, in traditional Thinkpad black and design. Throw in the seven row keyboard and my order's definitely in. I say this every year though, and I know the probability is zero !

No, there won't be any T26.
It does seem strange to develop the keyboard and never use it again, but I'm not surprised given Lenovo's lack of enthusiasm (even the T25 seemed to get done reluctantly, god knows which individuals managed to get that into production).

Thinkpad rumours

Bit of a weird rumour on reddit, a 15" Thinkpad with no numpad, and X-series build style (no idea what that means), that isn't the P1, coming in about two months time. No idea how reliable the rumour is, makes no sense to me though.
