Some linkage to one of my favorite peers at Lenovo, David Hill. This from laptopmag.com.
“In mobile technology, slim and light is a grail thatâ€™s forever receding, because what was last yearâ€™s impossibly trim is todayâ€™s status quo. This year, Lenovo has set the pace. Hill is the chief designer behind the ThinkPad X300, a laptop that pushes the envelope by literally fitting into it, just like Appleâ€™s MacBook Air. A black yin to Appleâ€™s yang, Hillâ€™s creative risk-taking paved the way to a machine that packs more of the punch business users demand (removable battery, optical drive, built-in mobile broadband) into a remarkably compact and lightweight chassis, setting a new target for the competition.”
