    cool. at least lenovo is getting around to releasing haswell machines. though, a little disappointing that they are all 14 or 15 inch models. no haswell version of the 11 or 13 inch thinkpad edges? (which conveniently never saw a us release.)

    The x240 is supposed to be launched now. The others will come I assume. My sister bought the Edge 135 and it's wickedly good.
