I am still stunned about the brain damaged new keyboard design as seen in
the X1 first/second generation.[1]

This article does it express the facts very well

But I don't want to continue this rant but instead ask:

    -  as anybody tried to contact Lenovo concerning current models
       design and got an answer?

    -  is the X1 first generation (whose  keyboard is missing already six
       keys, but is not as disastrous as the one of the 2nd generation)
       still available somewhere?

In amazon for example it seems only the  2nd generation be available.

BTW what about the X230 or X240 do they suffer from the same bad
keyboard design?

[1]  On the other hand the X1 has numerous advantages, larger screen,
     light, not as expensive as the X300.
