Lenovo's new ThinkPad X1 looks impressive, but how does it stack up against the Samsung Series 9, 13-inch MacBook Air, and Toshiba Portege R835?
Lenovo ThinkPad X1
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is the thinnest ThinkPad ever made, and it's a slim, cleanly designed 13-incher worth a look for business travelers--but it's not as thin as a MacBook Air, and its battery life isn't as good, either.
The $1,649 Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A certainly won't be for every wallet, but this light, well-featured, and striking 13-incher is the closest the Windows world will ever come to a MacBook Air. However, its higher-than-Air price will be hard to stomach.
