ThinkPad RETRO (TimeMachine) - WHEN?

Hello at Lenovo,

 

there haven't been any news about the TP Retro (TimeMachine) project released for a couple of months. So I'd like to ask, what's the state of it.

 

I am only aware of these official websites:

http://blog.lenovo.com/en/blog/retro-thinkpad-time-machine/

http://blog.lenovo.com/en/blog/retro-thinkpad-time-to-think/

 

Thanks for your answers in advance, Lenovo.

 

Kind regards

rastaman

Here's what David Hill said about the project at CES: https://youtu.be/8lqAa_eD84A?t=810

 

And here's some reddit posts on it: 

https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/42m7yl/so_any_new_updates_with_thinkpad_retro/

https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/45b766/any_news_or_rumors_on_the_thinkpad_retro/

 

Looks like they're working on it. Fingers crossed that at CES 2017 (ThinkPad's 25 anniversary); we'll see it Smiley Happy It'll make many ThinkPad fans happy

Re: ThinkPad RETRO (TimeMachine) - WHEN?

Many ThinkPad fans love it (like me), but some general users just like a simplifed look. There are many regular consumers that prefer a standard keyboard because they don't realize how useful a 7 row keyboard is. If they can't get a 16:10 display, I hope they can source a 3:2 display. And hopefully option for 4K touchscreen. That'll make most ThinkPad fans very happy. Me too, I'm excited!
