Lenovo computers are HIDEOUS. They look like they were made in the early 90s. And the mouse button thing is dumb too. Overall, a poor computer.

I've known a lot of people from mainland China, and none of them were party members, and hence, no more Communist than I am a Republican by dint of my president being a Republican.To be fair, though, when somebody self-identifies in the States as a Republican, that usually means that he actually believes in certain core conservative principles, be they socially conservative, fiscally conservative (ha!), traditional small-government conservative, etc. However, when it comes to being a member of the CCP, it's pretty well-known at this point that there are very few "true believers" left in China. Joining the CCP is a fast-track to upward career mobility, clean and simple. And just so I can actually make a comment relevant to this thread, I think I'm going to go for a Lenovo ThinkPad from either the T or X series. Buying through Harvard's website gives me a nice little discount of several hundred dollars, which is really worth even more when you consider the machines are preloaded with Microsoft Office. I do want my machine to be light and portable and all that...but I also really want one powerful enough to let me run games on it. Hmmm...

What is everyone's opinion on the new Macbook Air? It is so darn sexy, I am dying to get one, despite the built-in battery. I called my local Apple store and they said that if/when the battery goes bad, they'll replace it in-store for $128.
Question: maybe I read this wrong, but I'm pretty sure that NYU requires a PC computer for exams. I bought a MAC about 6 months ago and will freak out if I have to now buy a PC on top of that! What is the deal NYU
