So? Okay, say the author of this article really likes ThinkPads and is excited about this and so he makes an article about it. So what? I like ThinkPads and I appreciate that he wrote the article. I can't see anything wrong with that.
There's certainly nothing worse about it than a bunch of posts fawning over whatever new machine Apple released, and nobody accuses those people of being on Apple's payroll. The original ThinkPad X1 Carbon was, frankly, kind of newsworthy, and a touchscreen version is, in my opinion, also newsworthy.
Are these only supposed to report on things that are completely uninteresting to them? How the heck do they choose what to cover, then? Sheesh...
