Lenovo's Official X300 Comparison vs. MacBook Air Shows Why It's Better For Business Dudes

Illustration for article titled Lenovo's Official X300 Comparison vs. MacBook Air Shows Why It's Better For Business Dudes

You saw the 5 takes on the Lenovo X300, the X300 benchmarked vs. the MacBook Air, and even Mossberg's review, but what does Lenovo think about the comparisons between the two laptops? Well, obviously, they think their machine is better, but the reasons given for why it's better appeals to Lenovo's core audience—the traveling corporate worker—and not the MacBook Air's core audience, weaklings who like shiny laptops. Hit the jump for a big version of the image and realize that these two aren't really competing for the same credit cards. [Thanks Justin!]

@Nooorm: ThinkVantage is nice, but I personally found Access Connections a bit complicated to use. Windows's native wireless utility works fine for me. I do appreciate the backup and update tools, though. Overall, ThinkVantage is a pre-loaded software suite that is actually useful and unobtrusive — something of a rarity.

Also, I think ThinkPads are gorgeous, although mine has had some annoying hardware issues (my T60 is on its third motherboard now, and the latest one emits an irritating whine from time to time). Maybe they were more robust before the Lenovo takeover... then again, it could just be luck.
