T450 INCOMING. PHYSICAL TRACKPOINT BUTTONS.
so is there a xX50 line coming or what?
This is relevant to my interests. The T440s is probably one of the best modern professional ultrabooks. If they fix the fucking trackpad and keyboard lay-out, then the T450s will be my next work notebook.
You can expect the *50 series in the near future
General consensus is that *40 series are unfavorable chinkpads with their lack of trackpoint buttons and the other fuckups chinkpads have, avoid buying new unless it's sponsored.
However, the *50 series seem to be heading back in the right direction so they MIGHT unfuck the keyboard eventually
All I want are physical volume buttons.
X1 was the last one to get it right.

Why did lelnovo take something that is perfectly functional and fuck it up with shitty macbook aesthetics?
if only my thinkpads had these temps,
And this is while watching movie and 5+ firefox tabs open and other stuff, HP Compaq 6910P
it's ironic cuz they don't have caps lock key
Did I do good?
>new, genuine lenovo extended battery
If what you linked is true I'm happy in terms of specs but the displays are still being held back by how shit windows is at scaling.
>tfw no 2560x1600 x250 with a 15 hour battery life.
Also they're still using 16:9 touchscreen crap.
Finally got all my parts and built a 14" SXGA+ T61 last night. Thinkcat helped. :3
I'm just a fool for 4:3, don't do any intensive processing on the go, and am a total jew about spending shekels on technology.
I own a t420 and its a great laptop but even then compared to the true pre-Lenovo IBM thinkpads the quality isn't as great. I tried the t440s and the trackpad is awful. I had never before tried such a shitty trackpad in my life. It was mushy and inaccurate. I don't hold out much hope for a "good" thinkpad anymore and have since switched to a rMBP.
Just got back from a flea market and got a bluetooth Thinkpad mouse and a pair of eneloops for exactly $1. Thank you non-techy mexicans.
I need some help guys.
I just reinstalled Windows 7 on my X230 for the first time time about 2 years and I can not for the life of me get the wifi working. It's as if I have not wireless network adapter or driver.
>tried installing all three of the provided drivers from lenovo
>my wireless switch is on
>there are networks in range (not that I can see them though)
>chipset drivers are installed
>no setting to disable wireless in the bios
Any ideas how I can fix this? I installed the appropriate Intel wireless driver just like I did when I got this laptop new but it doesn't work this time for some reason.
