Currently the ThinkPad T61 can give a MacBook Pro 15" a run for its
money. Of course for me a MacBook Pro is just too big. I'm a bit
bitter Apple wasted their time on this MacBook Air thing and didn't
provide me with a nice MacBook Pro 12"!

I am living proof that people should avoid Apple as much as they avoid
Microsoft. See now I'm tied in now. I am reluctant to give up OS X
even though a Thinkpad fits my needs (in terms of hardware) better than
a MacBook. Sigh. :) Apple hooked me on their OS that's tied to a
single platform. I used to think this was okay, but now I realize that
they have locked me into their hardware too (duh!), which is probably okay.
