Keyboard destroys productivity

Date:August 25, 2014
"Should I start iwth the design of the keyboard, or the complete lack of a right click key on the horrendous mouse pad thing? I don't care how powerful it is or what it cost. I expect to work expertly in all functions, as I don't care much if it was $1k or $5k - it was forced upon me by misguided IT admins. It just needs to make me productive, especially when it's not plugged into a docking station with the ability to add a fully rationale external keyboard. Bottom line, the idiots who designed this keyboard thought nothing of the people that have to live with it everyday. Issues: (i) default of FN keys should be FN keys, not brightness, volume, etc.; (ii) End key is now Insert when FN keys get fixed / locked; (iii) Fn key is where Ctl should be; (iv) PrtSc is where Right-Click button should be; and (v) what are the magic words to make this thing left or right click when I want it to (nevermind, I bought an external mouse that I bring with me everywhere). FN-ALT-Delete, I'm out..."

This isn't a real ThinkPad

Date:August 22, 2014
"I have been using ThinkPad notebooks since 1995; having gone through generation after generation of them and have remained loyal even after IBM sold the brand to Lenovo. What have kept me loyal for so many years are the legendary ergonomics (TrackPoint and excellent keyboard), reliability, and performance. But Lenovo has really done themselves with the stupid click pad and absurd keyboard layout on this one. The trackpad makes the TrackPoint very awkward to use; almost unusable. The keyboard layout is simply absurd. Merging the End and Insert keys makes series word processing very difficult to perform. However, Lenovo kept the print screen and an oversized caps lock. Why? Reliability has gone from good to average. My 5-month-new X240 regularly has hard drive failures. A reboot usually takes care of it but it shouldn't happen with a notebook at this price. Lenovo has really done themselves in this time. This will be my last ThinkPad."

This really is a good computer

Date:August 20, 2014
"I felt like I needed to throw my opinion in since the long term Thinkpad aficionados are pouring scorn on this computer. It's a good computer people.
I work in Africa, and my last Thinkpad was tough but heavy. I knew i wanted the lightest I could get. Working with x240 has been excellent. The keyboard is different but it's still quite good. The extra space on either side of the trackpad is a nice wrist rest. The Trackpoint is a little more finicky but still works fine. (Next time: put little markers at the right and left click points)
I wanted a tough, little laptop with a blow mind battery that would withstand motorbike travels in the jungle. Done.
On the other hand I really should have shelled out for Windows 7 pro. 8 isn't as terrible as I thought it would be, but it's not great...sigh.
Anyways, haters be hating. I do think Lenovo should focus on the hard core user next round. Cater to your Thinkpad fanatics! Stop trying to be sleek and trendy! It aint broke!"

X Series should not build as an Ultrbook

Date:August 17, 2014
"x 240's Cons:
Power Bridge Technology(you better buy a 9 cells battery instead of using build in 3 cells battery plus 6 cells exterior battery) because it cannot power off completely and it is inconvenient to replace the build in 3 cells battery when the battery is bad.
x240 should not build as an Ultrbook
It is inconvenient to replace hard disk and ram because you have to take out the under case-cover to replace.
2 USB 3.0 ports are not enough.
Pros:
weight lighter
Speed is faster
Overall, x230 is much better than x240 Ultrbook"
