PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It'll be a full x86 device - Lenovo calls a 'joint effort' with Intel and Microsoft - that clocks in at 1.3 pounds with a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 display. It's billed to have 10-hour battery life, which would be impressive for a device only 9.8mm thick. The standard model is Wi-Fi-only, but there will also be carrier versions including one with AT&T's LTE connectivity." If you see a 1366x768 resolution on a 10.1" display, they blew it.

Agreed. I've got the Thinkpad x200 because it only came with the nipple, not a trackpad. I dislike duplication of function. Nothing against trackpads, they're better for general moseying around, graphical work &c, but if you code or write then the nipple is much more suitable.

I fell in love with the trackpoint-style pointer on my very first laptop, a Texas Instruments 4000M that was a high school graduation present from my estranged father way back in 1995. I've never gotten used to the touchpad that has been on nearly every laptop I've had since then. Either it's way too big and interferes with typing despite supposed palm-sensing tech, or it's way too small to be of any use as a pointer.

I've resorted to just leaving the touchpad turned off with this laptop and either using an external mouse or (in Linux) using keyboard commands to get around. Trying to type with it turned on is an exercise in frustration that makes me want to toss it against the wall.
