I bought a used Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon on eBay for $225. Still works great three years later!




What ever you have spare chargers for

Definitely thinkpad

Lenovo for sure. I like the tiny one that you can fold into a tablet. Forget the Thinkpad model - I had it a couple years ago and it was the best.

Can someone please educate me on why the MBA applications are going to get more competitive for next year?
