Best looking non-Apple computers

What non-Apple laptops out there look almost as good as, as good as, or better than the MacBook Pro?

I'd say Vizio comes close.

On a more serious note the Dell XPS Duo 12 looks pretty darn cool. They need to add a 15" model.

They were sold by LimePC a couple years ago. They were pretty nice, though I've never been able to own one .

Sony Vaio Z. Probably better looking than Apple computers themselves. The Gold one is amazing.

The Vaio Duo 11. Although functionality wise it has issues mostly pertaining the software, the design is sexy.

The Thinkpad X series has always been great. I don't like the new additions and changes to the lineup, including the new keyboard and the X1 Carbon, but they still look and perform solid. Ignore the stickers.
