Check out this video. It's CNET comparing the MBA to the X300. Up until the last point I thought they were doing a great job...then they played the pricing game. They're claiming the lenovo is a better value because it's cheaper than the air! So biased! They didnt mention that with the X300 you can ONLY get it with the SSD! They also added a 3 year warranty (apple's is more expensive) for some weird reason. Check it out, you'll see what i mean.
