I have Windows 8 running on a ThinkPad T20s. For the last two weeks, I have been using it as my primary OS. I had Windows 7 on this machine, but I primarily used it for work-related projects, preferring my MacBook Air for personal use. No more. Windows 8 is so much better than OS X. It runs incredibly well on a Sandy Bridge machine with a spinning hard drive. I cant wait to try it on an Ivy Bridge ThinkPad with an SSD. Apple has stopped innovating with their OS, and they see it as a mechanism just to sell more phones. Microsoft has really leapfrogged Apple in terms of UI design with Windows 8.

I am counting the days until Lenovo releases the X1. Windows 8 will be an amazing OS on that machine. Come on, Lenovo! Put the ThinkPad X1 on your site for sale already! What are you waiting for?
