Thinkpad S1 Yoga is nice and shiny again!

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Sat Jul 15, 2017 1:55 pm

Well, I dusted off my old Thinkpad S1 Yoga and gave it the care it deserved. It got a nice cleaning and some well deserved Trackpoint buttons. I forgot to take before pictures but I can approximate with these:

It spent its life on a kitchen table, so its keyboard looked a little something like this. It was nasty.

Also spent several months left in a dusty closet.

Well after about 30 min of cleaning, I got this. (plus ditching the xx40 Touchpad of Hell :twisted: <-- designed by him)

How do you find keyboard in your Yoga? I do own S3 14 model and IMHO key travel is to short - I do like typing on it but T460/L560 keyboard gives much better feedback.

The keyboard really isnt bad, but the layout is something to be desired.
