Re: 2021 Thinkpads

notebookcheck.net review of the X1 Carbon G9, an explanation for the very subtly bulged lid, some nice improvements, but a marginally worse keyboard compared to the previous generation in their opinion (though I think they prefer it to the X1 Nano keyboard).

Re: Why THINKPADS & who's 2nd best ?

Here's an interesting laptop (admittedly from a startup, so who knows how long they'll be around). The concept is a more modular and repairable laptop, while keeping a modern form factor. Framework startup designed a thin, modular, repairable 13-inch laptop . Whether there's a trend to better repair...

Re: 2021 Thinkpads

Notebookcheck's first take on the X1 Nano is that the keyboard with reduced travel is disappointing (rest seems good). Someone on reddit found a bunch of Thinkpad certification registrations, if accurate, the X13 will be 16:10, T14(s) 16:9.

Re: 2021 Thinkpads

Ah, OK. I want an X1 Classic - one of the new 16:10 X1's with a T25 keyboard, I don't mind it being slightly thicker, as long as the other dimensions don't grow. I think a supersonic pig just flew over.

Re: Why THINKPADS & who's 2nd best ?

Well, *maybe* the upcoming 30th ThinkPad Anniversary in the Year 2022 might have something like a "T30" (my own naming convention, "30" for 30th anniversary). It's 14" LCD, got most of what you want, but no ThinkLight (looks like it's gone forever). [Edit]I do realize that there's an old ThinkPad m...

Currently X1 Nano's are making their way into the real world, there was a rumour of 16:10 aspect ratio screens on the next X1 Carbon , an X1 Titanium is due sometime, and that's about all I know of currently.

Not much going on at the moment, but I was wondering what the X1 Titanium is. This is a different model to the metal-bodied Yoga ? What is the difference to the X1 Carbon ? Just a metal chassis, in which case why ? Is it really going to have a screen 0.5" smaller than the Carbon ? Not much point in ...

Re: 16:10 returns to ThinkPads: The X1 Nano

It seems a bit weird to limit this to 16GB. That's probably fine at the moment, but I had imagined most serious new design laptops could be configured up to 32GB. Oh for the days of a free RAM slot for later expansion, you could get 16GB and have a slot free if you needed more later on.

Re: Lenovo CES 2020

Having squinted at the blurry low-res pic on the "Verizon leak", I don't think this is the same device as on the Lenovo roadmap slides leak. The latter seems to have a border either side of the keyboard, whereas the former is (almost ?) edge-to-edge. One or both could be placeholder pictures.

With Thunderbolt you get DisplayPort so you can connect to any modern monitor, and there seem to be lots of cheap Thunderbolt to HDMI cables if you really want to connect to HDMI (please correct me if I'm wrong in this, I get all this stuff mixed up sometimes, but I think this is right ?). So maybe ...

Re: Lenovo CES 2020

X1 Nano is a 13" 16:10 Thinkpad, see thread on this site.

On the leaked slides on Twitter, the "2020 Thinkpad Commercial Porfolio" slide has an NEC logo in the top right of the X13 image, which is odd. What's that about ?

Re: 16:10 returns to ThinkPads: The X1 Nano

To be honest, I'm not particularly upset about ports. One to dock to a monitor, which has a hub for keyboard, mouse etc, and one spare which would be rarely used, maybe handy to plug in a camera / phone / memory card occasionally is just about tolerable. Really don't care about an optical drive - is...
