Rumors of Lenovo building a true Apple MacBook Air Competitor came true this year when the ThinkPad X1 was released. Thin, lightweight, durable, and fast, the X1 is the best designed business laptop you can buy. Hands down. Don't worry about messing it up like you would other thin portables, the X1 comes equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass on the screen, a carbon fiber rollcage (who knew laptops had rollcages?), and a spill-resistant keyboard. All that means is the X1 will stay as sexy as it was the day you bought it.
