This thing better be as invincible as a Nokia phone or it won't sell at all.

You'd have to be an idiot to buy either of these when you can buy a Trinity or in a few weeks a Richland power model for the same price that puts these Intel powered models to shame in typical use.

Lenovo is good build, and prices are right.

Touchscreen is marketing only.

Lenovo is putting TrackPoint into their IdeaPad laptops and call them ThinkPad.
It is starting to seem that way. These new Thinkpads are too stylish, I mean rounded corners?? My X201T (which is running fine for about 2 and a half years except the backlight flickers sometimes), is as ugly as f*ck but honestly I don't care and I prefer it to be ugly because then I'm not treating it like a baby.

I don't think it is strictly about being ugly and thug, but the new thinkpads are compromising in their functionality/capabilities/awesomeness in order to compete or come closer to something like a Macbook Pro.

Best example is the new keyboardlayout
