Re: Who would like a 15 inch ThinkPad that has a centered keyboard and trackpad (no number pad)

2018-01-05, 10:32 AM

Yet another long-time Thinkpad user, and responsible for choosing laptops for our companys employees.

 

This is something that I've been wanting since the W520 times, and would immediately result in 10+ sales from our small company. The off-center keyboard is physically painful (due to people sitting slightly turned when using them) for several of our employees, so they're a no-go. However, the people using the machines would benefit from the larger screen of a 15" machine.

Yep, I hate numpads. I think that they are useless and took the precious space only.

It's one of the reasons my T500 gets more use than my new E570. I love the centered keyboard and trackpad.

A 15.6” X1 carbon style machine, naturally without numpad but with a decent brightness screen, like the newly released X1c6’s 500 nits display would be absolutely ace.

 

Presumably the larger footprint would allow for a larger battery, which would mitigate impact of said brighter screen.

Is it just me, or OP went from "Lenovo Employee" to "Former Employee" since he posted this question here? :smileysurprised:

I think you're right... guess that doesn't bode well for a 15" machine with a centered keyboard.  :smileysad:

Hello, I retired a few years ago and they just got to the point where they changed my title.  It did not change because of the post. Just keep looking at Lenovo anouncements.
