something hi-end on the way ?

#1 Post by amardeep » Fri Jul 25, 2008 2:59 pm

lenovoblogs Thinkpad SL article
includes this :
We always appreciate our very vocal and very important ThinkPad loyalists here, but you represent a very small portion of our target market for ThinkPads. Though YOU would be willing to pay for IPS screens, HDMI, and multimedia card readers, the multinational companies that pay the light bills will not. They quibble over a dollar in cost (times 10,000 machines) and see card readers as a security risk, HDMI ports as superfluous, and IPS screens as unnecessary for workers to simply get their jobs done. That said, we are not ignoring this segment of the market, but unfortunately that’s all I can say until announcement time.
W-series or something else ?

I don't think he is talking about the W series, they are already announced.
Now: T60 2613-EKU | T23 2647-9NU | 600X 2645-9FU | HP 100LX
Past: X31 2673-Y13 | T41 2374-3HU | T22 2647-AEU

Rules of the road :thumbs-UP:
