    My short answer is no... but the thing is, the traditional ThinkPads don't exactly "capture the imagination", so to speak. No point celebrating a landmark by firmly planting themselves in the past.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 701c is smaller than the x220 and/or a modern netbook area wise (length x width), right? If that's the case, then, I'd like a 701c with Ivy Bridge in it, a HD or HD+ display if it's going to be 16:9, and with at least the x220's battery life with a 9 cell. :p

    So which elements of traditional ThinkPads don't you like? The black colour, the casing design, the keyboard, or just ThinkPad in general.

    I thought the traditional ThinkPads are evolving in its design, it is not exactly the same as the first ThinkPad. It clearly has evolved.

    Regarding landmarks and tradition, i guess people do that. Surely you celebrate some sort of important day in your life that repeats itself over and over again.

    Also, Rolex, Montblanc, Rolls Royce, Bentley, etc are all doing pretty well, selling their same old design that evolved little over the year.

    And Stradavari Volin design is still highly regarded after so many years.

    I'd go for an x1 with a Samsung series 7 slate as detachable screen.

    Technically, everything that is "black" is just dark gray. Absolute black is the absence of reflected light, and that's kind of hard to do with our current technology.
