Disappointed with upcoming ThinkPad 13 Chromebook

Pros

- 8GB RAM is much needed for ChromeOS power users.

- Core i3 and i5 are also much needed for ChromeOS power users.

- FHD and higher resolution IPS screens are much needed for ChromeOS power users.
- ThinkPad build quality.

 

Cons
- Keyboard doesn't have a red TrackPoint mouse???

 

Lenovo hasn't released a ThinkPad Chromebook with a TrackPoint mouse since the 2013 x131e. That x131e Chromebook isn't for sale anymore, so there aren't any current options for ChromeOS users. Why take it away and not have something suitable for replacing it? I really love ThinkPads and ChromeOS. I want to spend money on a product which is both, but each recent Chromebook Lenovo has been missing some important feautre. Very disappointing. :'(

Re: Disappointed with upcoming ThinkPad 13 Chromebook

I've got the chromebook 13, its actually a nice unit. works well and its zippy. the keyoard is lovely. But I've never been a fan of the pointer nubs, so it never bothered me that its missing... The trackpad works great on it, scrolling is smooth and its responsive, way way way better than on my work toshiba laptop.
