The battle over the thin ultra-portables has heated up a bit and Walt Mossberg’s full review of the Lenovo ThinkPad X300 will just keep the flames flickering. Mossberg seems to be sideing with those who like functionality over pretty design as he likes the ThinkPad X300’s connectivity, array of ports, and user replaceable and multiple battery options. He does point out some otherinteresting comparative features including that the battery life of the X300 is not as good as the MacBook Air, its higher price, and the fact that it only comes with an SSD. He also mentions that the X300 has a higher screen res.
So how about your, ultra-portable shoppers? What do you choose, functionality or design? Pretty over practical? Or does it matter if you can get your work done?
