Maybe Lenovo should get rid of David Hill and hire the likes of Javie-Jie and Hope instead?
Oh I'd love it. But it would only go so far. To get things done properly, it's Lenovo altogether which has to go.

Well, I for one was hoping for a 4:3 aspect ratio screen.

We still have a daily workhorse T410 with 16:10 aspect ratio and it is GREAT for our daily MS Excel work.
Also great if you need to crank out lots of MS Word essays/papers with small footnotes.

So imagine a 4:3 aspect ratio screen...
Daily Driver: X1 Carbon 4th Gen (X1C4): i7-6600U 2.6GHz; 16GB DDR3 1866 MHz; 1TB PCIe-NVMe SSD; 14" WQHD 2560x1440; LTE EM7455 Mobile Broadband; Win7 Pro 64bit
Current Thinkpads: X1C4 | X1C3 | X250 | X230 | T410
Retired Thinkpads: T42 | 560 (circa 1996)
