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

These are very good news!

 

Please Please let  me know when should I expect this new product to be presented/launched ?

My current lenovo laptop (yoga 13, the very first yoga) is diying and I am in search for a new one. Ideally it would be relatively light 15 inch machine with centered keyboard and *at least optionally) without dedicated graphics chip.

However there are no new thinkpad models satisfying this requirement so I am looking towards dell xps 15 or T480 now.

 

I wish the new thinkpad to have 15 inch screen options: 1080P touch/non-touch; 1440P touch/non-touch and 2160P touch/non-touch. I would go for 1440P touch but I feel all of these options will have their customer.

 

If the model you are talking about will be released in a ~month or two, it is worth to wait, otherwise I should buy xps 15 or T480, just to have a laptop to do my work.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

P.S. and yes - I just registered to this forum , to ask this question and support community's interest in such a device.

Spolikar, if you need a new machine in the next 1-2 months, I recommend the the T580 or P series WS. You will need to wait just little bit longer for the PC I referenced above.

Dear Jon,

 

Those have off-center keyboard which is absolutely no-go for me. I have been forced to use such a laptop for several weeks and I did not even get close to become used to it.

 

Thank you for your reply, anyway!

I understand your perspective completely.  We have to balance usability & fucnction with asthetics for all of our customers.  It is a tough balance and we do our best to accomodate as many customers as we can.  Thank you for your understanding!

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

Jon_P thanks so much for letting us know about this.

 

I don't have a desperate current need for a new laptop.  However, I would immediately buy it to have a 15" or 17" Thinkpad that:

- has a centered keyboard and trackpad (i.e. NO number pad)

- has great specs like the T580 or P52s  (I haven't researched the differences enough to decide which of those 2 I'd prefer)

 

The numpad just creates too much visual complexity and choices.  It's easy to accidentally toggle the INS number key and start typing the wrong thing.  etc...

 

Godspeed to you! :-)

Just a quick note to voice an interest in this also. Currently in the market for a 15 inch ThinkPad with centered keyboard, no numpad. Of course other items like display, weight, key travel, etc factor in. Looking forward to more news.

Please bring back the 7 row keyboard along with it! There is enough space for large trackpad (I prefer trackpad to be small) and centered keyboard on 15 inch!
