I am a huge ThinkPad fan. The MacBook Pro may be sexier, but if you shot a ThinkPad and a MacBook Pro out of cannons at each other, the ThinkPad would destroy the MacBook Pro and still boot up the pre-installed SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (or Vista, I guess, if you swing that way) in a jiffy.
And just spotted on Lenovo’s website is the next-generation line of ThinkPad laptops.
The naming convention is new, the specs are beefy, and the form factor is pretty much the same black brick. Perfect.
My four-year-old T43 is still going strong, but I am awfully tempted by the ultra-portable X300.
