Re: Corona-COVID-19 virus statistics and HOW is it affecting you.. what are you doing..?

Is your country locking you inside so you are not allowed to leave it? If so, what are the conditions to lift the ban (time constraint, situation in surrounding countries etc)? No, there is no formal travel ban. Travel outside the country is highly discouraged though (as is internal travel) and som...

Re: Ice Lake Thinkpad X/T series

When is Lenovo going to release Ice Lake versions of the X and T series Thinkpads? It is pretty safe to assume that this isn't happening, ever. Ice Lake isn't available as a vPro version, which is important for business laptops. Thus, all ThinkPads with Intel CPUs will rely on Comet Lake this year.

Re: Lenovo CES 2020

Those thin models like T490 have crappy trackpoint, short key travel and bad cooling. I think your Matebook 13 has much shorter key travel (just 1 mm vs. 1.7 mm on the T490) and its CPU performance is also worse than the T490. And it does not have a TrackPoint at all. But I guess a nice aspect rati...

Pretty sure you can get good USB-to-Gigabit adapters, and the USB-C flavors will become more widespread as the USB-A connector is phased out.

Since Intel had to postpone the release of 10 nm "Ice Lake" CPUs to late 2019/early 2020, they released a stop-gap measure called "Whiskey Lake". These newer CPU...
