    Lenovo have chosen for all of us :)

    Physical separate buttons for volume/mute/mic (which were absolutely awesome and useful, with visual confirmation) have gone the way of the status lights. While I will not miss the status lights (rather pointless in 2013, as physical HDDs are disappearing, NumLock mode is gone from Lenovo, legitimate software that wants network connection or write smth to disk at random times is more frequent etc), the dedicated volume buttons were nice.

    I say classic thinkpad with 7 rows keyboard, dedicated buttons (volume, thinkvantage), LEDs, and esp. the blue Enter key is far more sexier :thumbsup:

    Achieving a 5-row keyboard? I don't think many ThinkPad users would consider that to be "spectacular".

    Well, I have to say I like the newer design far more than the older - especially I don´t like the blue elements and the blue Enter key - but still, I like all ThinkPad designs, I like the newer just more. ;)

    There could be some irony inside this post. :D

    interesting... both an X240 and X240s are available, but only the T440s and no 'regular' T440 :(

    As an IT guy, I'll miss the hell out of them. It's a quick first step in diagnosing performance issues, before even touching the machine.

    Son is going away to college in the fall. I'm thinking T44s is worth waiting for - any reason this is not a good choice for college laptop? If you were not going to wait, what is a comparable laptop available today?

    I second the Sony Pro 13, my girlfriend recently got it and it is pretty awesome. Most, if not all, of the early reported bugs are not present on new models as well.
