I realize this isn't stupidly impressive or anything, but dang.
We need a point of comparison here:
MBP 13 - 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:
on your lap by letting airflow through the keyboard
So basically, it gets most of the business features - just not a matte display.
