I realize this isn't stupidly impressive or anything, but dang.
We need a point of comparison here:
- price is almost identical, and this is about the closest thing Apple has.
Item --- Lenovo ---- Apple
Weight: 4.36Lbs 4.5 --- call this how you will.
Construction: "one-piece aluminum" "Aluminum Unibody"
Processor: i7 2620M (2.7Ghz) i7 2640 (2.8Ghz)
Display: 14" Glossy 1366x768 13" 1280x800 glossy
GPU: AMD 6470m Intel HD 3000
Battery: 7 hrs 7hrs
When you look at this, the machines are nearly identical. The big difference being the dedicated video card. That right there appears to be the ultimate light weight, portable machine that can still play a few games. I know I am impressed. Too bad I already have a workstation
Still, where was this 6 months ago?
edit: A few cool notes about the Lenovo:
Breathable Keyboard, an Intel Advanced Cooling Technology that allows the PC to run cooler
on your lap by letting airflow through the keyboard
Roll-cage technology protects internal components from damage.
So basically, it gets most of the business features - just not a matte display.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"
