    The volume control button and blue Think Access button were moved to the right to give more room for the TrackPad.

    Also, according to this source: http://www.51nb.com/viewnews-64943.html
    The screen resolution is only 1366 × 768, but it's IPS screen, this machine does NOT come with a optical drive.

    The X1 looks like a 13 in version of ThinkPad Edge without optical drive.

    Glossy screen? Or at least looks like very reflective if those are real pictures (photographs I mean).

    Interesting, although I don't see why this computer would have to have a different name than the X120e and Edge series: it seems to be pretty much the same type of laptop. Specs are nice, although not all that impressive. A 1600x900 screen would be nice to see, but its absence is also not surprising.

    That is what I was thinking. I know how you feel, I was hoping for an x301 successor with HD+. I feel so disappointed about Lenovo's release this year. Why can't they release a laptop with decent HD+ screen for 12-14 from factor.

    Even sony is dragging its feet with the Vaio SA, which is supposed to have a 1600x900 premium display. Very frustrating, I have excellent eyesight, and I want high resolution.

    Ouch. X1 is not even a convertible tablet. It's so 20th century.

    In fact they are transitioning to the more advanced resolution, 16 pixels by 9 pixels. Each pixel will be represented by a light bulb. And if you have a dead pixel you can simply go to a Walmart store and replace it with a new bulb. Yea!

    That screen doesn't look 16:9, does it? The trackpad is also very tall, and really, everything just looks squished horizontally. I'm pretty sure this is a shopped E420s, with the buttons moved.

    here, look

    Why would they put gorilla glass on this? Is it touch screen?

    I am confused. The X1 mystery deepens.

    Does someone have a link to some real information? Looks like a new machine is coming out I've never even heard of.

    If this is Lenovo's answer to the MacBook Air, could one of you more fully describe the battery life and storage options?

    A 13.3" 16:9 1366x768 screen doesn't have me jumping up and down for joy. I'd much rather have the 1440x900 res on the mac or the 1600x900 res of the T420s.

    Well hang on here fellas... are you telling me that information on the internet can be unreliable, and that pictures can be falsified?!?

    Good heavens! This has shaken my entire world view!

    On a more serious note, no. None of us can. Those of us that are in a position to do so cannot divulge any information they may or may not have, and the rest of us are just sitting around idly speculating with a healthy dose of wishing.

    My bad. I thought from erik's answers that maybe an embargo had been lifted of some sort. Hope the real answers come soon.
