At my office, there are two distinct camps: PC fans…and Mac lovers. A friendly debate has transpired over the years and it is legendary.
PC fans tout the laptops’ simplicity and compatibility with nearly every software used at the office. Mac lovers enjoy mentioning the Mac doesn’t succumb to viruses as often as PCs do. Unfortunately, I don’t remember anything else Mac lovers talk about. I’m a PC fan, of course!
My work laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon, which I love using and carrying. I can literally pick it up with one hand…just my five fingertips! It is one of the lightest laptops on the market. But, don’t get it twisted. It’s still a powerful little machine.
The X1 Carbon boasts a bright QHD display monitor, has excellent battery life and can withstand wear and tear. Though, I must mention the X1 Carbon’s touchpad was super sensitive at first. After installing a new touchpad driver, it was much less sensitive. Also, you will need to purchase and use two separate Ethernet and VGA dongles to connect to LAN cords and VGA Monitor cords respectively.
After owning the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon for over one year, I can proudly recommend this laptop to fellow MBA students. In fact, I will purchase one before starting business school in Autumn 2016. I also recommend the Lenovo Thinkpad T-series, specifically the T460 laptop.
Some of my fellow MBA peers are Mac lovers, and I respect that preference. I recommend visiting Laptopmag.com for advice on buying a MacBook vs. Air vs. Pro.
