W Series vs. T Seires?

2008-07-16, 2:16 AM

If the W series is the new flagship, should it not be listed above the T series discussion pages?

 

With all the new models, it can be confusing to those who are reading about ThinkPads for the first time. Top-of-the-line ThinkPads should be listed first.

 

I would go:

 

W

T

X

X Tablet

SL

R

Etc...

 

Just a friendly thought...

Having used ThinkPad products for over 10 years, we had desperately tried to find just one reason to continue using these products, to no avail. We are of the view that ThinkPads are no longer premium products. We wish you the best of luck with your ThinkPad! Happy computing…**

Luke,

 

That's interesting feedback . :smileyhappy:

 

The subrands, and system families within each are not arranged in a way to convey any kind of perceived value heiarchy.  

 

I put ThinkPads first when I set the board up, and then added things as they have come along.  Eventually there might be an alternate navigation path through our site that would depict the portfolio of products and allow click through to the particular boards rather than relying upon the present home / portal page of the forum, although it would continue to exist.

 

I think the relative positioning of the families within the ThinkPad brand is more aligned with form factor and principle design points.  I don't know that this makes  W better than a tablet or SL superior to an R.   For many users, one particular form factor is especially compelling, and many are fairly passionate about their selection.

 

I'll give your recommendation some thought - it certainly is a good provocation concerning the logical organization of the boards.

 

Mark

Setting the order by number of messages from high to low cuts down on the chance that novice forum users will post on the wrong board (think about how many we have to move out of Housekeeping, for example).

Hi,

I was looking at the amount of posts on the various products and the T series' numbers are very large compared to the other computer types.

 

My suggestion is to split the T series in two, the older series and the newer series. There are pros and cons associated with this I'm sure, but for the T6x series computers I think it would be nice for them to have their own space and for the many T4x, T3x, and T2x owners it would also be easier to find help with older TPads. Just a suggestion. I can't imagine what changing a forum thing like that might be. I really like my first laptop. My T23 was bought used this year and it's happy.

 

I agree this forum is really growing by the day. Best Wishes.

Rich

We just re-orged at TPF, so I can well imagine it - it ain't a pretty sight!  :-)

I still think that with 13,000 or so posts, it would be a good thing to have the latest T series with a forum where they don't have to filter through the older T series machines. I very much value the effort Lenovo puts into supporting older T series as I just got one this year. So have a few science teachers I know because it was what they could afford. I can help them with their laptops because of this forum. I do it for free because I know the public school teachers usually don't get what they need to help in educating the children in the present financial situation here. Mostly I get bought lunch.

Anyway, T2x, etc.have problems not related to T6x series. Memory upgrades, hard drive replacement, inductor resoldering, etc. are unrelated to T6x issues. And they can use XP with teaching assisted technology as long as the T23's have 512 MB ram. I can upgrade them and have had to change a few hard drives which they paid for with their own money.

Sorry for the tangent, I just appreciate Lenovo's continued support for many reasons.
