Re: 2021 Thinkpads

The X1 C9 is interesting, it seems as the stupid 16:9 aspect ratio is finally recognized as unwanted one. Now please fix the keyboard layout :-)

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

it takes a bit of time to adapt to home/end being on different place than the page up/ page down I'll rather spend that time by someting more useful :D Even HP, Acer or MSI have better keyboard layouts now, having these four navigation keys vertically clustered. I also don't mind to have Fn-ed them...

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

Still broken keyboard layout and no AMD Ryzen option. But it is a good start to get rid of the 16:9 idiocy.

Might not be what most people are looking for around here, but it is noteworthy nonetheless I think.
No, not yet. Replace the Intel crap with AMD and fix the broken keyboard layout (at least to be like HP Envy layout or optional FN-ed on cursor keys).

Does WWAN (cellular mobile internet) work for anyone after the update to 2004? My EM7345 in ThinkPad 8 tablet won't connect so I had to revert back to 1909. But I admit the device is pretty outdated (no issues on my MateBook). I've read similar report for an outdated Dell laptop and Ericsson WWAN.
