    Default lenovo thinkpad w540

    Any idea when the w540 will be released? There is something now up on the American lenovo website. Just wondering when it will be out and how thick and heavy it will be.

    Probably October or early November was my prediction long ago. Still holding to it.

    Thors.Hammer is right, it will be shipping in October (announcement in September).

    Here is a picture of the T540p, which will be basically a lower-end version (spec wise) of the W540:

    The W540 will use the same chassis.

    I would guess it will be around the same weight as the W530 and maybe a bit thinner.

    Hmm, I particularly don't want the numpad. I want the keyboard/trackpoint/trackpad center-aligned, as in T/W530.

    I am afraid that not an option anymore: All new 15" ThinkPads will come with a Numpad.

    If you donīt want a Numpad, your only option is either stay with the older models or buy an T440p instead.

    Yea, ive stopped buying 15 inchers for that exclusive reason. Almost every manufacturer is now placing numpads on their 15 inchers, the Dell 15R SE being an exception among a handful of others. Try getting a T440p with FHD, or just get a W530, Haswell has very few advantages over Ivy Bridge in the Performance department.

    Maybe a stupid question but price-wise, will the W540 be comparable to the W530 now?

    Yeah, i think so. But you can always configure your W series with additional options.

    I hate the chiclet keyboards, and now it's not even a centered trackpad. Guess my t61p and w520 will be staying with me for some time

    the new alienwares/some clevos use conventional keyboards, so those are an option (i guess). I personally adopted to chiclet-style.
