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.

Totally agree with you. Those who never used a trackpoint (at least for more than 1 day), do not understand how good they are.

kwanbis ~from HA? Hm, consistency-wise (scientific method, rigorous testing methodology, and so on), I'd expect something better from you than "Those who never used a trackpoint (at least for more than 1 day), do not understand how good they are" ;)

...because, see, actual research suggest that trackpoints are inferior to touchpads (some examples linked in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pointing_stick#Comparison_with_touchpa... & http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=18522893 external link; and, conversely, note how the views and links supportive of trackpoint seem to be "subjective opinion" in character)

Reminds me also of http://plan9.bell-labs.com/wiki/plan9/Mouse_vs._keyboard/index.html

(and personally I do like trackpoints, I'm used to the concept; but...)
