Definitely a tradeoff, but on the other hand it can take far more RAM and double the hard drive space, and the pixel density is what I have gotten used to with my last 3 yogas (910/920/c930/c940). Let's hope we can get both ASAP…

So the expected availability had the wrong year maybe? Q1... 2022?

Re:ThinkBook 14p Gen 2

There are important reasons to choose the 2.8K display compared to the 2.2K one: the 2.8K will allow for an integer scaling of 2x to a mapped resolution of ~1425x891 which is quite good for a 14" laptop. A 2.2K screen would bring the integer mapped resolution to 1120x700 which is really too few screen real estate for most people except maybe visually impaired ones. That means you will have to use floating point scaling which is glitchy and reduces visual clarity, leading to many people questioning why should we waste valuable battery life for such an high res monitor in the first place (and I agree with them considering we are going to waste the resolution benefits due to the floating point scaling). Unfortunately there is no sign of ThinkBook 14p Gen 2 equipped with the 2.8K monitor, let alone 32GB of ram.

Being soldered, having less than 32GB of ram would be a no go for people like me who are searching for a portable development workstation.

I would be willing to buy the ThinkBook 16p Gen 2 which comes with more memory, but unfortunately it also comes with an useless Nvidia brick inside: Nvidia discrete graphic cards are useless to those who want to use Linux with the Wayland graphic server and a bad choice for whoever wants to use Linux anyway.

The ThinkBook 14p Gen 2 looks like such a good laptop, too bad Lenovo decided to ruin it with bad marketing decisions (no 32GB of ram, no 2.8K) and scarse availability.
