Hey oicdn, I dont know if you already bought a laptop but I want to recommend you the sony vaio TZ. Its in my opinion THE best ultraportable laptop on the market. It has a better design, much better battery life and even more features then the Lenovo X300 at the cost of a slightly worse processor and build quality.
The design is just drop dead gorgeous. In my opinion it trumps everything out on the market including the macbook air.
The TZ comes in multiple configurations. I got the low end version of the TZ with a 100gb HDD+dvd drive configuration for about $1200 including cashback. IMO you just cant beat it at this price. The high end version has a 64gb SSD + 250gb HDD. The TZ is the standard for ultraportable laptops. It trumps the X300 in terms of features and the Macbook Air in terms of design.
