  • Consumer grade version of the upcoming ThinkPad Edge 15"

    There's two things I'd like to see coming from Lenovo at this point: a consumer-grade version of the x100e (at a lower price point), and a multi-touch all-in-one PC with the design of the current A series ThinkCentre AIO's for business use.
