    I need this in my life. Please make it with a Danish keyboard! Though if they don't make a quad-core model then I don't have much use for it other than to please my love for older ThinkPads

    as long as it has the old keyboard design I will be happy, VERY HAPPY. That big delete key is just LOVE... Though I probably won't buy it unless I can get a 7700HQ or something like that.

    Doesnt matter much, till the time its a decent i7 it will do. But im guessing more low end ones will be with i5's and 1 or 2 with the i7 's.

    If it has at least 28W processor + IRIS 650 in ~3.5lbs I would be happy and get rid of my Vaio Z Flip to make room for it.

    If comes full 48W i7 and dedicated graphics, I would be elated

    Unfortunately I suspect it will come with "ultrabook" specs 15W glorified Netbook/ Typing machine, which isn't enough for me:(. As far as I am aware, not a single Lenovo product has IRIS in their ULV lineup, and only have 3 models of laptop with full powered CPU (T, P, and Legion)

    Actually, their ThinkPads are mostly using cTDP-up and the ULVs are set to 25W for the package. It makes quite the difference in certain applications.
