What to you think about the new (pic related) ThinkPad x260?

Pictures: http://imgur.com/a/hv21y

Will you buy it?

>>52415914

It's a flagship series ThinkPad, and they didn't fuck it up in any major way as they did with the X240, as far as I can tell. Some people will probably miss the VGA shit, but to be honest, I'd rather have the extra USB-port. Too bad they didn't put at least one type C in there, though.

I notice now, that they only have the option of a 300 nits 1080p screen. 300 fucking nits? The X250 came with a 400 nits 1080p screen! Fuck you, Lenovo. That's probably where they got that extra battery life "upgrade" from.

Thinkpads consistently have the worst fucking screens, I bought an x220 to replace my x200 and I still haven't switched over because somehow the screen has even worse viewing angles and worse colors.
Like, looking at an all blue background, the top and the bottom of the screen are different colors, shit is insanely bad.

>they didn't fuck it up in any major way as they did with the X240, as far as I can tell
right

>vga
yeah I also think an extra usb is better, there is also the possibility of getting an hdmi->vga adapter if one needs it

>usb-c
is just a meme, almost no device uses it, it would be wasted, two generations from now should be normal.

>>52416047
yeah i just hope the screen isnt shit, but a 1080p ips shouldnt be shit
>>
>>52416249
>but a 1080p ips shouldnt be shit

Right, it shouldn't, but they're obviously not going to use the same panels as in the X250. Instead, they're going to use a lower brightness panel. That, to me, seems like a cost cutting measure.

I'm actually contemplating purchasing either the X250 or the X260, and right now, it's actually leaning toward the X250 because of this.
>>
I will probably buy one when used ones become available. By that time I'm still going to use my x200s. I will soon upgrade it with x201 mobo, some extra ram and ssd, and maybe I will make a ghetto-powerbrigde from parts cannibalized from a docking base and dead battery (or convert a docking base into a one fucking huge battery)
>>
It's a letdown.

The new t460s has a new sexy design. The x260 is nothing more but a x250 with updated a new architecture and STILL no 2x RAM slots.
>>
CLASSIC THINKPAD WHEN? THEY HAVE THE SURVEY WHY CANT THEY JUST PUMP OUT A REAL THINKPAD ALREADY
>>
>>52416293
i still think i'll get the X260 because of the skylake architecture, but i'll wait for the first reviews to come out

>>52416321

yes no swappable battery, that's great thinkpad design

Out of all the things that suck about this you picked the most irrelevant.
>>
>>52419190

What do you mean? You can easily just pop a PCIe SSD in there and you can upgrade all that other shit. And yes, integrated graphics are pretty standard in notebooks geared toward portability.
>>
>>52415914
1599$ ?!
shit
aint nobodi got mone for dat
>>
>>52420026
>1599$ ?!

Where'd you get that number? The only one I've seen quoted is the $929 for the base model.
>>
I want one, wish it wasn't like 2k canuck bux for a nicely equipped one, might just get an x250 off ebay after the prices drop a bit more.
>>
>>52416047
Can confirm, I have a company issued T440 [spoiler]I work at Lenovo[/spoiler] and the screen is abysmal. And that is a 1000+ € machine. Fucking how? Fucking why?
>>
>>52420877
The jest of it is that you cannot buy a base model with nice screen so you can add RAM and swap SSD. YOu have these fucking tiers that will make you pay through your arse if you want that one particular thing to be better. I hate this shit.
>>
>>52420038
that's going to be a lower end i5, 4gb of ram, 256gb SSD, the basic screen, and 6 cell battery, the price will soar once you build it to your spec.

>>52423338
because the T series is meant as a general workhorse, so the screen isn't fancy like on the W/P series, but for spreadsheets, and documents it's fine.
>>
>>52419190

on the contrary it should be good so I can see what Im doing when discuss stuff with my coworker leaning over his table. Either I see it or he does. There is no reason it should be this bad at this price point.
>>
>still no x series tablet
Lenovo PLS I don't know what to replace my X220T with when it dies. I dream of having an actual accurate tablet, since my x220T's resolution is low and isn't the most accurate.
>>

It's such a comfy computer, I just wish it had a bit more power.

I doubt that, going by historical pricing.

>>52415914
>those keys
Nah, but i might consider it when i get an external mechanical keyboard.
>>
>>52416781
2017/2018. Maybe they'll release it for the 25th anniversary
>>
>>52423711
Name an actual laptop with better keyboard.

>some people will probably miss the VGA shit
They'll should bundle a DP to VGA cable for a limited time. VGA is still used in some projectors.

It's going to be overpriced to hell and back, so no.

Too bad gweiro, forget about your sirry swiver screen and buy our ThinkPad™ Yoga™ instead

>>52425856
As all tech are when they first enter the market

>missing the point of buying business laptops only after they depreciate in value
>>
>>52425922
ACTUALLY I have a yoga too. They are nice. I wanna sell mine though, but I don't think I'll get more than 400 on eBay. So I might ad well just hold on to it all things considered.

Fine laptops except for the shitty fucking touchpad
>>
>>52426400
>using the touchpad ever

Unless you have the failed abortions of clickpad model, you never use the touchpad on a device with the almighty clitmouse. Even so, it should be possible to get a keyboard assembly from a *50 series to replace the awful clickpad
>>
>>52415914
It looks kind of shitty to be honest. I liked them better when the charging port was on the back, and the fan outputs were on the top of the sides and part of the back.

I also would prefer a full sized keyboard. I don't want a number pad, but I want the prtsc, pause/break, and scroll lock keys, but that's probably never going to happen. I don't care about the chiclets.
>>
Why do you people like ThinkPads so much?
>>
>>52429284
Like whats so different about them and a laptop or chromebook or macbook or etc..
>>

used thinkpads are cheap and quite a good value for the money

they're also sturdy

You know that the i7u is barely better than the i5 and doesn't justify $600 spike
>>
>>52415914
new keyboards look unconfortable. They look like the 2010 ones (x100 for instance) and those really sucked.
>>
>>52429343
t60, t61.

Fucking impossible to destroy.
>>
>>52429343
good ol' x220. Not that sturdy but still way better than most new laptops.
>>
>>52425635
Dell Latitude E6500

Typing on it right now, chiclets can fuck off now. Not worth backlighting for
>>
>>52415914
>What to you think about the new (pic related) ThinkPad x260?

Noice.

>Will you buy it?

No. 12 too small for my uses. T460, if my current thinkpad died.
>>
Is this the thinkpad thread? Can I ask about X220 tablets?
>>
>>52429343
You can buy used T60 or T61 thunkpads for $50 or less, and with that you get a perfectly usable laptop with excellent *nix compatibility that will easily survive retard siblings or pets knocking them down to the floor

Also the clitmouse is GOAT
>>
>>52416047

are you me? I have an x220 just sitting in my room unused while I type this on my x200.

The x220 does not have a battery indicator LED visible when the screen's open! My x200 has one, it's super useful because you can be fullscreen doing something and still get a warning "oh fuck it turned orange, 20%, find an outlet." all my other laptops would either just straight die on me or only break fullscreen at 5%, pretty cucked.

X200 master race
>>
>>52429944

T60 's are not too much fun as modern machines. I own two. The resolutions are great but the panels age horribly, they go yellow and dim with shit viewing angles. Literally can't read text comfortably at the top of the screen and bottom at the same time. X1400 is *barely*
better than GMA4500 and not worth the power draw.

Never owned a T61 but they have a reputation as timebombs.

X200 all the way, senpai. Apparently T400's are good too but if i'm gonna be using a C2D it might as well be lightweight.
>>
>>52429663
>dell
Basically the same shitty layout found in the thinkpad keyboards (T430 and newer)
>>
>>52429284
Stylish.

Reliable.

You can buy them used.
>>
>>52415914
No BIOS, you can't mod it anymore to break whitelist

Since no BIOS chip, you can't flash a free BIOS either.

Everything hardware-locked, you simply can't mod any part of thinkpads after 240.
>>
>>52423403
They gouge a lot on the extra options for the first few months and it tapers off after that. You can still save 30% off the standard website price if you use EPP or one of the other affiliate programs.

Anyway I am not buying one of these any time soon since my X230 still works great. (My X200 on the other hand is on its 3rd battery and 2nd screen and probably won't last much longer.)

>for spreadsheets, and documents it's fine.
It is *not* fine if you have to move your head around to see which goddamn cell your coworker meant by "the one with light yellow background, not the green one."

The view angles on older 'pads are so damn horrible out-of-the-box that I feel like it actually hampers productivity.

There's a reason why professionals only use the Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
>>
>>52432913
I'm inclined to agree that MacBooks have become the new corporate laptop with Lenovo only being able to blame themselves. There have been so many compromises with the Thinkpad series the last 10 years, a seemingly great Thinkpad will have some crippling flaw or compromise while still being priced the same as a MacBook. It's ridiculous, Lenovo should know better than to rely on the Thinkpad brand to sell.

I'm going to hold my T60 close forever and dust it off once in a while to enjoy its build and feel, then calmly put it away and forget what Thinkpad has become.

Also, for clarity, I don't own a MacBook, nor any Apple products at all.
>>

No thinklight
Trackpad
6 row keyboard
