Call my cliche, but I have always favored the Alienware laptops even though I would never buy one. I just like their design and the matte black.

Lenovo x220
- One of only a tiny handful of laptops with an IPS screen and the only ultraportable with one
- The best battery life of any laptop on the market (24 hours with the slice battery)
- The best keyboard you can get in a laptop
-Magnesium Alloy chassis with soft touch rubberized coating on the exterior
-Full voltage Sandy Bridge processors

I've owned my x220 for 8 months now and could not be happier with it. I do have to admit the Zenbook is great looking but the poor color accuracy on the display would make me pick the x220 over it if I was buying again today.

I only use the display when I'm not around another monitor. Which isn't often. I use an external at work, and home. My son has no problem with the display, but most times has his hooked up to the TV streaming Netflix. Oh, how I hate Netflix...
