Are they sexy? Well, not really but they are solid machines, and the best Windows laptops you can buy (for business use, which is what I use mine for). If you have to get a Windows laptop, get a ThinkPad even though it will show finger prints. But let us not forget that it wasn't so long ago that Powerbooks were black.
Now, I know we are all dyed in the wool Mac users, but if you had to get a PC laptop, what would you get?
