Will keyborad be replaceable by good old classic from T520?
I dislike Edge-styled keyboard. It's not thinkpad with such unusable keys.

Chiclet keyboards allow laptop designers to make a thinner laptop, because the chiclet keyboard itself has less overall height. So if a laptop comes with a chiclet keyboard, and you try to replace the chiclet keyboard with a traditional ThinkPad keyboard, then the keys will strike the screen when you close the display, which will scratch the display. At least, that's my understanding.


Sorry to take so long to reply, flashnik.
