Hello, all guys, i am looking for a laptop for myself.Do you have a good recommendation?
My friend suggest me go for this Lenovo X201 Ultraportable Thinkpad,i know a little about it ,what do you think about it and its price?
Besides i feel this Apple MacBook Pro is good,but it is a little expensive for me.
Which one should i get it ?

The Macbook's hard drive and use only Windows and Linux. But I was told by people at the Apple store that doing so would void my warranty.I think I can safety say the X201 is not for me. Not having a large track pad is the main issue. But also it needs a 13 inch display, that's the minimum size these days for a serious work laptop.

You made the #1 cardinal mistake when seeking advise about buying a new computer. You failed to say what you will be using it for. A student living in the dorm who needs to lock it up in a closet has different needs from a road warrior who is seeking something light to carry, or from a construction worker who needs something rugged.

Also, one has MAC OS while the other has Win7 - you need to define what you need.
