    I am currently running a Lenovo Thinkpad X201 Tablet, specs in sig, however I am missing the mac operating system. Also I am missing larger storage capacity. I am a student and travel a lot with my computer, however I don't really care about the weight. It is nice to be lightweight, however not a necessity. I do a little bit of light gaming, mostly Total War strategy games, anyone know if Shogun 2 runs well on the MBA/MBP? I have narrowed it down to a couple of choices.

    1) 2011 MBA 13", only problem is storage.
    2) 2011 MBP 13", getting a design update soon.
    3) Build my own Hackintosh Desktop, and an iPad. Is iPad enough for class?

    Each really has their downside. Curious about what anyone thinks is best, or any other suggestions. If anyone has an estimate of what I could get for my Thinkpad, that would be awesome :D.

    Yea I think I can wait for the refresh. Going to be a long wait though....

    I would rather not have an iMac, because I already have an external display.

    It could be as late as May/June 2012 before we see changes to the MBP. There might be a processor bump before that, but nothing big.
