It is too bad that the SL body is just plastic. Other than that, the SL seems to be a powerful machine!

MacBook Pro, with an aluminum unibody enclosure **As of September 15, 2008, our company has completely switched to Apple. Having used ThinkPad products for over 10 years, we had desperately tried to find just one reason to continue using these products, to no avail. We are of the view that ThinkPads are no longer premium products. We wish you the best of luck with your ThinkPad! Happy computing…**
I own a T42 and an SL400, and the SL400 is every bit as stiff of a chassis when you pick it up by a corner as the T42 is. It may well be that the slightly thicker body of the SL400 (1/4" or so) allows lenovo to make a frame as stiff as the T42, I don't know. But it feels very solid to me.
