    Even MSI is tame when you look at Acer Predator.

    Once you turn off the RGB - it's a very muted and premium device

    I wouldn't call that muted, the design itself is too gamery for me

    Ha ! Lenovo / Thinkpad will never turn out a device as ... poor looking as that. That is horrendous. Black box + solid build + proper keyboard + trackpoint + decent screen (innovation over classic Thinkads) + whatever's up-to-date in CPU, that'll be wonderful.

    Forgot about screen

    They have to use 4:3 or it isn't a classic thinkpad.

    Which leaves the choice of 12.5" screens produced for MS Surface lines (very good screens but limit the size too much) and I think there is a 14" 4:3 out there somewhere but I not positive. If they have their own 4:3 screen made, it will raise the price quite a bit.

    hahah yeah right, a black little bit bulky with 1920X1200 screen LED, and full magnesium top and bottom frame with powerfull processor dan GPU, and every single parts in it are upgradeable is more than enough for a New Classic ThinkPad i guess..:)

    I don;t mind too much about it being 4:3, I'm currently using a 14" 16:10, and that's fine. Quite like the idea of a 13.5" 3:2 (MS Surface), as keeping the machine small would be nice (for my preference).
