Hardware, Embedded Systems "The recent release of Intel's Centrino 2 platform means a refresh of notebooks from every manufacturer. Lenovo took this chance to not only update the internals of their ThinkPads, but also to make changes to their naming conventions and release a few new models, including the addition of the ThinkPad X200 to the venerable X series." The X200 brings along a widescreen display (the X was the ThinkPad's last standard aspect ratio series), the Centrino 2 platform with 45nm processor, and an SSD option. The notebook is a bit wider than before but still has that ThinkPad keyboard and with the right battery it will last up to 9 hours."

I think the thinkpad design is great. Solid, minimalistic and classy.

I guess design is subjective, but I do not understand where people fault the thinkpad design. One of the reasons I purchased a thinkpad was the aesthetics of the machine.
