Lenovo has dropped them.
The last one having them seems to be the T530.

I do not remember having seen any model in the generation 4 with mouse=20
buttons (either above or below the touchpad), definitely none with a 14=20
or 15 inch screen at FHD resolution (1920 * 1080).

The T530 was still available at some shops in mid-August, but not at=20
others, I don't know the reasons behind that (large pile in stock?).
And it does have the wide screen, 16:9, there seems to be no chance to=20
avoid that. It is non-glossy.
