As a follow-up to this post[^] :

I have begun to use the latptop (Lenovo X240).
It comes with a 150Gb SSD drive, 88Gb are used for standard programs (20Gb alone for windows, rest for standard "company" SW I will never probably never use) which leaves me with 50Gb, so exactly 1/20th of what I had so far. But OK, I can access it faster...

Interesting keyboard layout: Natively, "End" and "Insert" are on the same key, and "Insert" is coupled with the F-keys, leaving "End" with the usual useless shortcut keys (for changing volume, brightness, firing up the browser, etc..) as you can toggle between F-keys and useless keys with F-Lock OMG | :OMG: . Which means that I can either use the F-keys, or the "End" key, but not both at the same time, unless combining the F-keys with the Fn key. To close a window, hit Fn+Alt+F4. Debug, hit Fn+F5.Unsure | :~
So I mapped the Insert key on the End key using SharpKeys[^], which means I cannot use "Insert" anymore, but I can live with that. ( I also remapped the obsolete SHOUTING Caps Lock key on Shift).
This is the second time the keyboard layout designer needs to be killed though.

The mouse/touchpad is quite terrible as well...

Apart from that, it runs nicely. Smile | :) The speed is awesome, even with twice as less memory than before ; SSDs are definitely huge improvements for the global performance.
