Lenovo's First Consumer Laptop

Looks like Lenovo is releasing a consumer laptop. While it doesn't look as nice as the ThinkPad, I'm excited to see Lenovo joining the game. They didn't address all my keyboard concerns, but it is nice to see some change. The stupid mouse "nub" is gone and the Esc key seems to be in the right place, but, unfortunately, they still have the damn Fn key out of whack... of course, the most annoying of all the issues. On the positive side, it has an integrated camera, what sounds like a nice sound system, and a 6-in-1 card reader. Nothing revolutionary, but they are at least nice features. Hopefully, we'll see these improve over time. I'm really hoping to see some change in look and feel of the laptop. It's about time for some out-of-the-box thinking. Then again, maybe they should focus on tablet PCs first, since I'll be getting one of those in June
