It's all about the keyboard.

Date:July 24, 2012
Cons: keyboard
" I have been a Thinkpad owner for over a decade. And with every release the they seem to get a little worse. A laptop is all about the keyboard and the monitor. Something the new R&D folks seem to forget. The new keyboard layout on the T530 is worse then the T520. Instead of expanding the keyboard size and leveraging the wasted speaker space they shrunk the keyboard further making the esc key a non-key like the Dell products. Why would you intentionally frustrate those folks that use the esc key. Yes old programers exist, and yes they like a boring keyboard with a big esc key. If I wanted to buy a machine to play games on them I could do without the esc. Either way each year I find it harder and harder to defend my purchases of Thinkpad laptops. The new design is just another nail in the coffin. "
