The Lenovo Thinkpad X1 is awesome. However, there's one ultra-portable laptop that we think may have the MacBook Air aesthetically beat: the Samsung Series 9. What is, we think, the best-looking PC laptop on the market today may have have the same firepower as the MacBook Air, but it's no slouch. It has Intels latest processor, a quick solid state hard drive, and an excellent display. Samsung also took a page out of Apple's handbook and swathed the Series 9 in something called Duralumin--a material twice the strength of aluminum while still being just as light. Oh, and unlike the MBA, it has a backlit keyboard. Your move, Apple.
