    This is true. I actually prefer the ThinkPad styling, because it implies a focus on functionality.

    I love the looks of the ThinkPads. Basically all of my friends owns HP's and they really mock me with the old and out-dated looks of the ThinkPads. It's not as flashy as others but I would be getting very tired of the glossy looks of other notebooks, especially the HP Pavilions.

    I only have to tell my friends about Lenovo's features regarding protection and durability. Then they'll shut up :)

    Also the ThinkPad design has been around for several years with only minor changes. I would say that indicates it's a design that works very well. I don't think you can find another brand which has used the same design for as many years.

    A timeless classic beauty—the Marilyn Monroe of notebooks!

    I have to say, I am attracted to the looks. It's the antithesis of pop-culture, flash and gloss, and as such it has become a timeless classic. Yes, one could indeed consider it the Marilyn Monroe of notebooks, but I think Audrey Hepburn would be a better match: Classic, fine features, elegant and a dab of dark mystique :p

    I love my Thinkpad (X200). Sure it's plain, but I wouldn't want it any other way. The plastics do not show dirt, unlike the DV series from HP. You can't get a manlier machine than a Thickpad.
