Stop assuming people are rational.
Everything counts.

If there are 3 other people of roughly the same skill as you and they will have a slightly higher risk not to take you seriously based on a silly picture?
That can hurt you.

Of course, they can also find it endearing and not hire you.

My point is that personal marketing MATTERS.

X250 (and x260) has got:
1: Chiclet keyboard (you get used to them after a while and they are not THAT horrible).
2: Thinkpad nub.
3: High resolution matte screen.
4: Easy to open bottom, haven't tried replacing/upgrading yet.
5: Decent port selection (2 usb, ethernet, displayport, vga, card reader).
6: One external, one internal battery, and, yes, hot swap is possible.
7: I shut off the trackpad, so I don't know if it would be annoying otherwise.
8: Weight is 2.88 pounds for standard model.

So, well, most of your points are addressed, barring keyboard.
It at least groups the top row, which 230 and 240 didn't.

Bahnhof are a bunch of pranksters.
They do care about personal integrity though, since it's basically their USP.

I did work there for a while, didn't really like the culture.

But, yeah, this is a publicity stunt, which is what brings in customers to them.

They have also criticized what is basically a tax on television by creating a fake tv-channel and lots of other stuff.

They mock the judicial system when it's outdated or just weird regarding IT.
