Hi, SL team, and it's great to see that there is now a business quality laptop with high-quality media options as well. I did have a few questions after reading through and looking at the flickr photoset... I saw some SL backs with a yellow power cord adapter (like I have on my T60) and some without... what is the difference? Also a question regarding the back... will a T60 9 cell extended battery fit the SL?
I'm looking at getting an SL500 for my T60 replacement... what sort of features will I lose? I asked a Lenovo Chat agent if the SL500 had the ThinkLight and she responded in the affirmative but after checking the flickr photoset, I can't find it... it's not there, is it? I am quite excited about getting an SL but again, I'd like to know what sort of stuff hasn't survived the jump from T-series to SL.
I do know that it's a snazzy design exercise and for that I applaud you... I'm looking forward to having mine soon!

I will soon be starting a blog that's focused on small business, and I invite those of you who are small business owners to visit it when it comes online and share your thoughts with me. I hope to serve as a resource and sounding board, not just for PC-related news, but about small business in general. I am very excited about it, and I look forward to chatting with you there!
Your new blog sounds exciting! Please keep us posted on it!

Interoperability of batteries was something we focused on when we designed the ThinkPad SL, and the 6 and 9 cell batteries are interchangeable with the batteries on Montevina-based T and R series.Your 9 cell T60 battery will not fit the ThinkPad SL.
Unfortunately, there is no ThinkLight on the ThinkPad SL. I am happy that you like the new design, since it's a *HIGHLY* subjective topic. I will be the main blogger on our soon-to-come SMB blog and the first posting focuses on the design elements of the ThinkPad SL. I hope that you'll visit it once it's up and that it'll answer many of the questions you have about the new system.

welcome on board! I'm really disappointed that all the new ThinkPads have a widescreen displays. I want FlexView ThinkPads back! All other displays are just really, really bad. I buying ThinkPads since I can remember, but when you guys keep putting these cheap, low quality displays into these notebooks then I have no choice than to look somewhere else.

Great! It will be interesting to hear the rationale behind the keyboard layout choice.
