Alright. This this X1 is bristling with extra buttons, finger sensors, track pads, track pad buttons and other pointing devices. They went too far though I don't need that stuff, but I do use esc. My existing mac book is fine without extra buttons for volume or power but it has esc in the right place.
Perfection would be the happy hacking layout with control where caps lock usually is. That's why I use a happy hacking keyboard at my desk.
