I'm soon planning on purchasing a new ultrabook and have settled on two different devices as the title suggests, but I'm having trouble deciding between the two. I'd be using the laptop for both home and work utilites and need a device that has good battery life and good for travel. I've done some pretty extensive research on both machines and they both seem like excellent devices that are on par with eachother, but I want to make sure I make the right decision. I have a $1500 spending limit. Below I'll list what I like and dislike about each machine:
Lenovo X1 Carbon
Screen - 14"1600x900 in a 13" frame.
Keyboard Ergonomics and Backlit Feature
Rapid Charge Battery
ThinkPad Durability and Windows Business Machine
*$900 price tag for base model (Source: Lenovo Rep) I'd likely go with max specs though.
Aug 20th release date
Macbook Air 2012
Easy integration with iPhone 4s
Proven Track Record & 3rd Revision
Can run a separate Windows Partition for Business Utilities
Screen - 13" 1440x900
Please help me decide. Thank you all in advance for your help!
