The end of the classic ThinkPad Keyboard layout (#Lenovo #Fail)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/05/18

(Thanks to a “Missed Post” problem on WordPress.com, this one didn’t get posted on the scheduled date. Sorry for any inconvenience)

First Lenovo did away with 1920×1200 screens. Now they done away with the ThinkPad keyboard layout.

Both were my compelling reasons for buying Lenovo.

In fact, they are now marked as forum.thinkpads.com • non-ThinkPad Lenovo Hardware.

New Lenovo X1 keyboard. No more ScrLk, Pause and local-menu keys, PrtScr key moved to impossible place. 6-key navigation split.

PS: Anyone in The Netherlands who has a new ThinkPad W701 with 1920×1200 screen for sale?

Select a file or files and choose “File > Move to Trash” from the menu bar
