Re: W530 Release Date

Yeah, that would make sense with the June 5th date that was cited in one of their leaked presentations

Re: W530 Release Date

Is the cluster of keys on the top above the backspace going to be their on these new laptops? It seems like the mock up picture gets ride of these. I use my home and end keys allll the time.

Re: W530 Release Date

No, they've replaced the award-winning, 7-row classic keyboard with a 6-row chiclet keyboard.
