Opinions on the thinkpad yoga 14? What's a good price?
I asked this in the last thread and didn't get any replies.
I currently have an X200. She is still going strong, but it's time for an upgrade. I need something light and portable, but at least 1920x1080. I was considering a gen 3 X1 Carbon. I already have a desktop replacement laptop, so I'll probably still with the i5 line. Suggestions? Mistake?
To expand on why I'm considering the yoga , I'm thinking of getting the Yoga 14, and I THINK I could swap the clickpad on it for a trackpad from the T450, as I believe the dimensions are the same. If that's a case, would (probably) be a better option than a T440p. Otherwise, I'll keep lurking for a decent price on an NVS T430, an i7 T430s, or a T440p.
Also I've never used a touch screen PC, but I bet I could do some nice things with it.
Just replaced the HDD in my T60. Got all the drivers reinstalled and trackpoint+middle button scrolling doesn't work outside of Explorer. Anyone have any idea why?

also, why can't lenovo include pic related in newer thinkpads/chinkpads?
I want a tiny laptop to mess around with GNU/Linux on, and I want to be cool like you guys so I am looking at ThinkPads.
Which ones might fit the bill? I want as small a format as possible really, a laptop that borders on becoming a toy.
Why would buying an X1 Carbon be a bad idea? Besides the fact that it's "not a thinkpad" and "chinkpad" and ">Lenovo"?
What would a good price be on a gen 2 used? 600? 700? Assume best specs it can have.
gen 2 is almost unusable for me, no trackpoint buttons and shitty touch button f keys
gen 1 and gen 3 are alright, and the keyboard is not that bad, decent battery life. I'd rather have a t series but thats just me. avoid the TN panels
gen 3, 8 gb ram, 2440x1440 IPS (non touch version) is a pretty sweet machine, a bit pricey though, but in a month or so when intel releases the next line of processors, i bet we'll see 30-40 percent off of the stock
