I am a longtime Thinkpad T series user, also have a Mac desktop at home, like them both. I would like to buy an easily transportable laptop for light tasks ( word processing, Internet, email) and like the MBP 13 as a reasonable compromise but am hesitant because of the glossy screen with no matte option. For that reason I am also considering the X301. However I am concerned about the higher native screen resolution which may make reading difficult for a middle aged person such as myself. I actually haven't seen the X301 in a store. Wonder if others have been in the same quandry deciding between the 2. I also like the keyboard on the lenovo better than the mac. Cost is not a consideration. I would get the mac if there was a matte option and I would get the X301 if the resolution were not so high. Perhaps I am unduly worried about the screen glare (MAc) or worried for nothing about the small fonts (X301)?
