Default Looking for a modern Thinkpad X201s replacement

Hi All,

Lenovo discontinued their x__1s series notebooks after the X201s in 2010. Their newer models all feature slower processors, larger form factors, and a touchpad. Furthermore the newest lenovo laptops like the x240 no longer feature full docking stations with optical bays, or fully expandable memory, so I have little faith in Lenovo anymore to improve their design and come out with something I like in the near future.

Are there any good quality, rugged, compact, utilitarian, high-performance business subnotebooks that are an adequate replacement for the old series? Willing to consider just about any brand but HP. I'm really looking for something with an i7 processor, highly upgradeable memory, standard SATA3 SSD (no proprietary drives) and a high density display, that has a full featured docking station. Should have a nipple mouse if possible and either no touchpad, or one that can be disabled without impeding other functionality.
