You can use a 45 W charger on models with the iGPU: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/itemdetail ... E#overviewpianowizard wrote:I don't do anything graphics-intensive, so I prefer integrated GPUs. What's the smallest AC adapter that I can safely use for a model with integrated GPU?
There is also an upcoming ultra-slim 65 W adapter announced on CES 2016 for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon line: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/CES-2016/D ... -p/2242065 Since the X1 Carbon uses the same power plug as all other ThinkPads, it should be possible to use this one on other ULV dual-core models too. Its even smaller then the 45 W adapter. This one is coming out sometime this spring.
Not sure about the travel distance. The new ClickPad has a different mechanism, it does only click at the bottom edge, not at the top (like the T540p ClickPad did). Its also much less noisy and the clicking feels nicer.pianowizard wrote:What's the new clickpad's travel distance? The main problem with the T540p's clickpad was that it sank too deep.
Also, do you know if touchpads with proper buttons will ever return?
Touchpads with buttons did already return on ThinkPads, but for now, only on ThinkPad P50 (which is what I am using right now) and ThinkPad P70. They have a new UltraNav with 6 buttons (three for the TrackPoint and three for the TouchPad, picture: http://www.notebookcheck.com/fileadmin/ ... 87a49f.jpg). So the question in the future will be if and when other machines will also receive this new UltraNav. Lenovo descripes this as a Workstation-specific feature.
