It’s so great to see the progress on the new generation of @mntmn reforms (I have a very early beta unit on my shelf) :)

Here are a couple of pictures comparing my two laptops. The mnt reform 2 beta has arrived today. The Thinkpad x230 I've had for almost eight years now.

Recently I added the ThinkPad Battery 19+ to the x230, so it is installed in the comparison pictures as well.

The reform 2 beta unit looks boxier but really they are pretty much the same size.

Also with the additional battery installed, the ThinkPad is actually quite a bit heavier than the reform.

I haven't even shown you the bottom yet! The mnt reform 2 is a pretty device from almost any angle, but the bottom is a truly stunning sight!
