Seems like the author just stuck that in there since he owned an X300 before.

In his blogpost: "The design cues are strikingly similar to the milestone X300", +, its supposed to have a 13" screen.Where does David Hill say that any remake would follow in the X300's (and presumably X301's) footsteps?

Did anyone ask for 2 thinklights? Did anyone ask for the rainbow logo? What's with the lack of real mouse buttons?
As said before, the T420, X300/301 etc. is pretty much the pinnacle of classic design.
Just do that and everyone here will be happy. Remove the CD tray and put in a empty sata Ultrabay + optional Ultrabay battery.
Make sure it has 7mm sata + Ultrabay sata + the new fangled M2 sata format.
I would guess the new GT2 Intel GFX would suffice. I would like DP and HDMI.
1,600 x 900 IPS minimum with FHD and UHD/QHD option.
Minimum 7hrs. 10+hrs with Ultrabay.
1. A 6-7 hours battery life
2. A way to rarely install software from an obsolete media called a "DVD" (now subsumed by USB sticks)
3. A way to view movies (now subsumed by streaming media or USB sticks)
4. A way to install a 2nd internal disk drive
I don't think the new laptop needs an ultrabay if it has several high-speed USB interfaces and a good battery life and/or a way to integrate a 2nd drive. Basically what I'm saying is that you can integrate a 2nd MSATA drive AND a battery if you abandon the need for an Ultrabay and a disk spindle. The space used by an Ultrabay could easily house a large LiPo battery and an M.2 60mm SATA drive at the same time!
As for a DVD, it is very, very rarely used, probably used for 1 out of 1000 hours in the life of the laptop, and external DVD/CD is just fine.
Lots of thinkpads (10+) but I would never be so stupid as to list them all because that would spam everybody's searches and people who *do* try to list them all would be jerks.
