Agree.
I recently read a journalist's (biased) review on a ThinkPad, and said that it's a good unit, but got a "dated" look due to the TrackPoint.

The point is this: good designs don't change!
I personally used ThinkPad on trains, taxi, bus, ferry, etc. to reply work emails (unit connected to internet via ThinkPad's built-in Mobile Broadband WWAN).
The TrackPoint was invaluable in such situations, as not enough space for a mouse.

And good luck trying to drag-and-drop with a touchpad!
Which is why TrackPoints are so good!

@Ibthink:
AFAIK journalists have to stay informed about multiple items from multiple brands, in your case, they are PCs and laptops.
The majority here on this Forum is only interested in, and has worked closely with, IBM/Lenovo products.
Our visions may be limited, but are much more precise and geared to our/customer satisfaction.
Your visions are blurred by Apple/Dell/HP and whatever else.

This is not against you personally, but against journalists in general.
Usually they only know a little bit about a lot of things.
