With the new upcoming P53, P73 series, will there finally be an option to choose the Ctrl key to be located at the corner to the left of the Fn key? This seems to be a build customisation that is a long time coming.
Our work desktop keyboard, like all other Windows keyboard, has the Ctrl key at the corner and it is a real annoyance to not perform a key sequence correctly, only to find out I'm pressing the Fn on the Thinkpad without being mindful.

Thanks for the reply.
Yes I know about switching the left Ctrl and Fn key in software, but the hardware key sizes, and more importantly the key labelling will be still wrong. It can be confusing when the Thinkpad is used by more than one user.
Why can't the key placement just be the normal Ctrl - Fn style like the rest of the industry, and even Lenovo's own Ideapad laptops?
Like you advised, the Ctrl and Fn key can be switched, so save that switching option for those who wants the current non-standard Fn - Ctrl placement instead.

It is fairly easy to remove the keycaps so if you switch the functionality in the BIOS, you could simply switch the keycaps yourself.
