    I feel it a bit odd that lead_org would trumpet big Thinkpad news and suddenly disappear. He is an established member here on NBR and has been a major contributor in Thinkpad threads as well. Hope he is doing fine!

    As do I.

    Having said that, it's the "upcoming" ThinkPad that may or may not be doing well, judging by what we've seen so far.

    Maybe this mysterious wonder machine, destined to fulfill the wildest dreams of all die hard Thinkpad traditionalists, has finally been perceived by Lenovo as an inherent threat for the sale of their current crippl^H^H^enhanced run of the mill Thinkpads?

    Or maybe there was never even such a machine in the pipeline, and the whole thread is a joke thanks to baseless rumours pulled out of nowhere?

    Or maybe Lenovo once again moved the goal posts...which would be my guess...

    Accusing @lead_org of lying? You do know he is a long present member here, and a guru when it comes to ThinkPads? And that he for example knew about the move to Chiclet keyboards months before it was made (since he was invited by Lenovo into their headquarter in Beijing)? Isn´t that a bit harsh? I mean, he did want to inform you about something positive I guess...which didn´t happen until now, but may happen in the future.

    I guess people are not used to wait a bit and be patient...no, its better to start pointing fingers on a long time and well known member^^ I guess there are reasons for lead_orgs absence and the silence about this that you may not know? ;)

    My guess is that most people around here have a problem with the fact that "this week" was two months ago...


    While that may very well be the case, lead_org would've done his own reputation a favour - in my opinion, that is - by coming back and posting *something* that would explain how one week turned into months...

    Not that I personally care, for two reasons:

    a) I still see him as my friend

    b) Whatever Lenovo decides - or not - to surprise us with I won't be buying anyway.

    Vow. lead_org obviously heard a rumor and posted it on his website, and you hold him accountable for that.
