with navigation keys only accessible via Fn+arrows.
Still better than Lenovo 6-row layout where PgUp/PgDn and Home/End are on opposite sides of the keyboard :( And there is no option to map it via the Fn+arrows like HP or Microsoft laptops have.

So have the OLED designer/engineers solved the OLED burn-in problems yet?.
Wondering the same, let's see. On the other hand my Lumia 950 phone had no burn-in issue after several years.

Re: Just ordered Huawei MateBook 13

1) there are no configuration options over here, we can buy preconfigured models only. So to get a better display means to pay for overpriced Lenovo 1 TB SSD and i7.

2) basically all are garbage, except the overpriced HDR ones

Lenovo Readies New ThinkBook Family of Laptops

https://www.anandtech.com/show/14296/le ... ok-laptops

Just another crippled model with misleading Think moniker legacy. Cheap generic laptop design and no trackpoint.

Fortunately I no longer care anyway.
