    No doubts! ;)

    In such cases I simply use Wikipedia, e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WSXGA+

    14" went down to 1440x900 from 1400x1050, so it's not just the tablets.

    There is no webcam option at the moment. But what is even more irritating, there is no wwan, wwan antenna, or wwan status led in current models. Hopefully this will change. The ultra mobile X200s does not make much sense to me, if I don't have the ability to use it truly on the run...

    I wonder whether the lack of camera and WWAN options is a purported decision made in order to distinguish X200s and X301?

    I can't imagine that they will permanently exclude the WWAN option. That is a necessity as much as wifi for a good chunk of users - and particularly the type of highly mobile users that are interested in the x-series. I imagine that WWAN will be an option in the coming weeks.

    I agree. The webcam is very useful to me. I often make long distance video calls with collegues, using skype, when a meeting is not possible; and I talk with my family when i am abroad for work. I am a professional software engineer. The webcam should not be considered as a surplus toy for teenagers. It would also fill more the beazel.
