AFAICT (I'm about to receive mine), the Thinkpad keyboards do have "windows
keys" now.  And they're among the rare laptops with 3 buttons, which is
*very* convenient if you're a heavy Emacs user.

Actually, I'm surprised at how most "linux-laptop" vendors offer mostly
laptops with 2 buttons only, given that X11 has traditionally been used
with 3-button mice, and so many applications make use of all 3.
I much prefer the button eraser type mouse on Thinkpads to the touchpads that everyone else uses.
