=============================================================== From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ Wil, I am a BIG fan of the Lenovo Think Pads. I have a T430s and a T460 and = they are fantastic. Best Keyboard in the business, great backlighting = for keys (as good as apple), and still have separate ram and HDD so you = can buy a used one and easily upgrade. Multiple battery options as well. = Very good battery life in general. A nice T460 i7 is prolly in the $300 range on flea-bay.
