    Do you think its worth the price? for 11~13 inch laptops? because I was considering to buy one.

    I read the base is now starting at a bit under $700 and with the IPS screen in can be had for about $740, which I think is a very competitive price, specially since, if I am not mistaken, comes with a class exclusive IPS display. Plus, the battery life is better than average. Right now I am pretty tempting to get one, but something in the back of my mind stops me.

    You do give up a lot getting it down to under $700 though (No OS, Celeron 847 @ 1.1GHz). A more realistic starting price would be $850.

    I would say its worth it though if you are in the market for a good ultraportable.

    battery life is WAY over average. I get a minimum of 9 hours on the 9 cell. normally 11-13.

    as for price ... go haggle with reps or get a good coupon code, mine was had for 1300 CDN ( minus the SSD and RAM upgrade )

    wholeheartedly, I would say get the i5 as the i7 does not seem to be much faster ATM.. and the i7 throttles for now but Lenovo is working on it.

    its by far the best traveling companion I EVER had
    Lots of Macs, and lots of HP and Dell portable workstations plus a couple Panasonics and a Thinkpad or three.

    Really I thought it was the ULV SB cpu at that price, good to know.

    At least with the DOS x220 page, the ULV SB i5 was $170 more than the SB i3.

    Edit: If someone is looking to save some money, take a look at the DOS page: (Takes forever to load at my end.)http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/c...A00002E43%253A

    Handy if you have a Windows disk already or can get one for cheap. (Student, etc.) Or if you don't need Windows.

    I thought I misread that in that Lenovo thread, but wow that is a bit odd the i3 cost less than the ulv i5. How much better is the battery life on the ULV models? Is the LV cpus offered also, or is that skipped?
