Re: My ThinkPad T25 review

I'm hardly old (27), and I've been using both 16:10 and 4:3 in the past, most of my computer life was on 4:3, so assuming few people today remember the 'good olde days' seems odd to me. In fact, I see quite a lot older 4:3 screens around here in most offices, universities and schools. There's only f...

Re: Interview with David Hill

Thanks, guys. I appreciate the help, but I don't want to import it because I don't want to risk that I will get a faulty device and then I won't be able to use the warranty or even get parts due to low number of the laptop worldwide and none in my country. Anyway there wouldn't need to be a Polish l...

Re: Interview with David Hill

And where is that final product anyway? I can't buy it anywhere in my country, even though there's abundance of any other Thinkpad. I'd gladly buy the T25, but Lenovo says "fvck you for being non-American", so yeah, thanks Lenovo for this retro keyboard I've been awaiting for two years!

Re: Thinkpadders Rejoice (*LARGE PICS*)

And my brand loyalty only goes so far - whether one is talking about ThinkPads, Gibsons or Citroens - all of which would need to re-visit their roots like Jaguar did in order to get my business again. I absolutely agree.Gone were the days that Thinkpads were completely innovative. They were the fir...

Re: Lenovo punished for SuperFish RootKit in USA

ThinkPad fans can´t punish Lenovo (because individual Thinkpad sales are not very important) and the users of this forum (many of whom have ...

I'm pretty sure the x80 series will be the same as the new x70 series, but with updated screens to 10% sRGB and brightness of 100 cd/m²

Re: T430 HD vs T420 HD+

I had the HD screen in my T430 and replaced it with T420's HD+. Both suck, but the HD+ has better brightness and slightly better colors. However, the viewing angles are terrible. I guess HD+ is a better choice, because HD was just too dim to use during daylight even indoors. If you'll be using exter...

Re: How's this for a great escape.

Every time I see this kind of video it reminds me of the Walt DIsney's documentary about lemmings where they have shown lemmings 'suicide' by pushing dozens of them off camera from a cliff. Hence why I prefer to read articles about stuff than watching a set up documentaries. I wonder how many iguana...

Back to the topic :) Is there any known progress of the project or it has been killed silently by Lenovo in favor of more crippled Android/Chrome/crapware laptops/tablets (that will dominate for masses in the future, unfortunately) ? Wait until CES in January. If they won't present anything during ...

Re: X250 review by an old school ThinkPad fan

Why not just disable it then? I disabled trackpad on my T430 a day after I bought it in 2013 and basically don't even notice it exists. For some reason, disabling it in the BIOS doesn't actually disable it. I'm not sure why. I do still sometimes use it for scrolling because OpenBSD's middle button ...

Re: X250 review by an old school ThinkPad fan

My hatred for the TrackPad burns as hot as ever. It's just too big, and eliminating the physical buttons makes it more frustrating to use unless you have tap-to-click enabled, which itself is irritating. I wish you could buy this without the TrackPad like you could with the old models. Why not just...
