I personally like the early IBM one because it shows the most information but I dislike IBM's uncordinated use of it.
The 340 comes AFTER the 350?
Skip from 300 to 350(and JP 330), but 310 comes many years later
360 and 370 are same year but 365 is next year.
Looking For: 386 laptop, IBM or not.
The main difference between the two-digit and three-digit number scheme is of course that the three digit number-scheme allows you to differentiate the screen size. This has its advantages, as it allows users to better identify the specs of the machine just by looking at the model-name. Of course, this also means that you have many more models than before, which makes it rather harder to have a good overview of the lineup. So both have advantages and disadvantages.
I am very curious though what happens in two years, as the three digit-number scheme for ThinkPads has almost run its course...

I however do like Lenovo's 3 digit version very much, at least in the first models. T500, I think, is just an epic name. I say it "T Five Hundred." Same with X200, X300, T400, W500, W700, SL300, SL400, SL500. They have "hundred" in them. It sounds good. The others I abbreviate, like X201 is "X Two Oh One" and T510 is "T Five Ten" and so forth, so they sound less grand. But still, very good laptops.
Don't forget Lenovo's current naming scheme for the X1, X1 Yoga, P1, 13 (although it is now L3**), and 25. All the X1 Carbons are called X1 Carbon, which is confusing. I am glad that the P series uses two digits. I predict, with the 2020 models, the T and X series will go back to two digits, and that is my preference. T40, X20, X30 will return, we'll see L30, L40, L50, E40, E50 for the first time; and finally we get a T50.
