In that case let me ask the following question:

Are you likely in your upcoming models to provide one which does/provides
some or all of the following:

  - no linux compatibility gotchas
  - keeps the trackpoint
  - restore the keyboard layout to something more like the x200 or 220
  - restore the key style and responsiveness to the same
  - restore the physical mouse buttons so the trackpad can be deactivated
  - shrink the trackpad down to a more reasonable size (or eliminate it)
  - provide more vertical screen real estate (ie not widescreen)
  - restore the x200 style green indicators visible on both the outside
    and inside of the lid (a minor point but one I still miss, not sure
    why they were removed)
  - keep the same power connector (as the x220)
  - allow memory upgrades
  - battery swap-outs (eg extended life or spare batteries)
  - built in rj45 connector (no dongles)
  - approximately x220 sized

And if so, which of the above conditions are likely to be met?
