Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

actually it does seems a pretty cool laptop. it's in the Air price range, so i would personally go the Air (if Apple doesn't screw up the mac os) but it's a pretty good option and seems a very decent workhorse.

i just wish that:
a) lenovo allowed Linux or BSD as default OS (with the consequent price drop) and
b) that they changed the website for customizing the laptop. 9 out of 10 items don't have any options. the whole thing is confusing as hell.
