There's no going back to Windoze for me at this point, but Lenovo seems to have pulled another one out of the hat:

Their laptop even made the cover of Business Week (interesting reading even if you're a Mac fan):

Looking forward to the next gen MBA. Isn't competition great?

If I was not into OSX/Macs and needed a Sub Notebook like the MBA, that X300 would be my next portable machine.

I love Thinkpads.

My company recently got me a Thinkpad x61s optioned to the gills, running WinXP (of course), and it is a killer machine. I easily get 6+ hours, which allows me to work continuously on cross-country flights. It's got all the ports and connectors that I need, and the keyboard and trackpoint are without peer. If only I could install the Mac OS. :D
