    If the Thinkpads were released at the CES, How long after that before they are available to buy from computer shops or sites like Amazon and Newegg ?

    It's too bad they only put 2 USB ports in the X250... That's not its biggest flaw of course (the single RAM slot would probably take that honour), but still disappointing. I'll be skipping this cycle.

    PCPer had more information, but they pulled the page. Anyways, Google Cache to the rescue:

    --
    For the road warrior that finds the 14" X1 Carbon too unwieldy, the new ThinkPad X250 is a slightly lighter (starting at 2.88 lbs) PC with a much smaller footprint. The X250 features full HD (1080p) displays with optional touchscreens, backlit keys, the latest clickpad, and updated internal hardware. Lenovo is using Intel's 5th Generation Core i processor, HDD, SSHD, and SSD options, up to 8GB DDR3 memory, and its Power Bridge dual battery technology for a speedy portable with respectable battery life.
    --

    So, we'll be stuck at 8GB and contrary to the TechRadar page, it seems HDD will be the norm with SSD as optional.

    I wonder if there'll only be a FHD or FHD touch option. Perhaps they have dropped the old 1366x768 by now?

    They were leaked by PCPer. Still available in Google Cache:

    CES 2015: Lenovo Think Release for Business Customers | PC Perspective

    TechRadar, PCPer and a few other sites seems to have published this information before they were allowed to. I can imagine Lenovo being a bit pissed. The information should probably not have been published until tomorrow (Monday) at the CES.

    I noted that the TechRadar article did not mention an ethernet-port. I fear the worst.

    Also, the 8GB limit is bullocks. There ARE 16GB SO-DIMMs available, that even fits in the X240. But for some reason Lenovo/Intel will not make the BIOS update required to support it. It's strange because they often make BIOS updates.

    The article is pretty light on details. I imagine you’ll have GigE on-board or, at worst and like the X1, a dongle for this.
