    The irony of it, I imagine, would be IPS glossy screen... but it may provide for a part number for the LCD panel that may be possible to retrofit.

    Sorry, but I have very few details. It will be the same form factor as the X1 Carbon (not like the twist), but will be slightly heavier (3.5 pounds) and a little thicker. The webinar from the event where they discussed this will be available shortly (see Live Webinars | LPN | (US)). The 8gb X1 Carbon will also be available later this month.

    Thanks andrubuntu!

    Should be a nice alternative for those that want the touch, but still have the X1 Carbon styling.

    It might even interest me in canceling my X1 Carbon. On one hand, it could have a nicer IPS display. On the other, it's apparently heavier/thicker, and could be a gloss display. I'll wait to see more details. Anything on the refresh X1 Carbon with the i7/8GB and Win 8?

    There will be something called ThinkPad Helix coming out in the future (annonced in a Lenovo event in Shanghai last week Friday), which has i7 CPU, 1080p resolution IPS in 11.6 inch LCD, with pen digitiser and removable screen that doubles as a tablet (like Surface Pro?)... you didn't hear it from me obviously... LOL

    This sounds interesting. I hope the screen is matte. i7 CPU seems like an overkill though.
