I'm new to Thinkpad, looking at a decent use MBA laptop, wondered whether the x220 was significantly (=$200) better than the T420. I think I can get the x220 i5 inc slice for c. $1000 from the site, wondered whether there were any tips to buying cheap / at a particular time of year etc. I'm not a Lenovo plant, serious question.

USA. There seem to be frequent offers, but I'm not sure what the ballpark should be for i5. a couple of extra qs- Is the HD Premium screen worth getting? Is the slice as effective as it seems?

Premium LCD is an IPS LCD, and it is definitely a must if you like high quality LCD image. I would imagine 800 to 900 dollars should be what you are looking at with 4 gigs of ram, 320 gigs platter hdd.

That's exactly the advice I was looking for, thank you. Do I need to dig around for deals / codes to get that price range, do you think, or just wait for the right window? They seem a little more now. I have a 10% sign-up voucher and/or I can use the student affiliate program, I think. Last thought, does anyone have a view on the reality of using the slice?
Really appreciate this.
