  1. ahhh, middle school. and that 6 foot adapter cord that couldn't even reach from the wall outlet to my desk. those were the days of crappy battery life and 10GB hard disks 😛

  2. It's not an anniversary product? Grade schools around here (North Carolina) have had the same looking Thinkpads with Core i3 CPU's being replaced with visually identical laptops with updated hardware every other year. Even the little nub is still there.

  3. Linus this machine is crap for what you get in terms of price. At 1800 dollars I expect the machine to have at least a 1070m (8GB) along with an i7-7700 hq. This machine is crap and is basically a ultra book with the thinkpad brand stamped on it. I frankly have no idea why you think this thing is great.

  4. Was kinda disappointed by the specs. Like what Mr.Rossman said it was just throwing a bone to the thinkpad enthusiasts and fans. They really didn't care much. Maybe they will make s ryzen mobile one later on.
