I sat across the aisle from David Cush on Virgin America’s inaugural flight from SFO to SNA yesterday. He was using a ThinkPad x60 and had a lot of good things to say about it. Naturally, I took the opportunity to shoot a GBM Shortcut.
Cush likes ThinkPads’ keyboards so much that he refuses to use any other brand. He has an extended battery and has used his ThinkPad for up to seven hours on a single charge.
Many of Virgin America’s planes have GoGo WiFi on board, which you can access for $9.95 to $12.95 per flight for notebooks and $7.95 for handsets. Their entire fleet will be outfited with WiFi by the end of May.
GBM Shortcuts are sponsored by Lenovo.
