Note that you can=E2=80=99t extend the memory on the X1 nor replace the hard
disk; also neither X1 nor T431s seems to ship with an IPS screen.

  Lenovo=E2=80=99s lack of matte IPS screens in new models made me leave
  them after eight years with four different ThinkPads; I got an
  Asus Zenbook UX32VD instead. I miss the TrackPoint, but otherwise
  the machine is a wonder: 1920=C3=971080 IPS matte display, dual Intel
  and Nvidia graphics, a DIMM slot and a standard hard disk (plus
  a 24 GB SSD gumstick on the motherboard). I put an 8 GB RAM
  chip in the DIMM slot, replaced the 500 GB HDD with a 256 GB
  SSD, squeezed Windows 7 into the 24 GB SSD and I couldn=E2=80=99t be
  happier. Linux 3.8 kernels also support it in full.

It=E2=80=99s da bomb. It=E2=80=99s phat. It rulez. Everything else sucks. B=
any affirming superlative describes Mutt accurately and well.
