Choosing a Laptop

Hi everyone.  


I'm in the market for a new laptop and coming from a long line of HPs I can't decide on a model.  At present the two at the top of my list are the X1 and the T430s, although I'm open to other suggestions.  The laptop will mainly be used for software development in Ubuntu and running occasional Windows VM.


My requirements are as follows:


  • 14" +/- (1) screen with a good resolution, needs to be fairly portable
  • Must run Ubuntu with minimal hassle
  • Must allow access to HDD and RAM for future upgrades

Both models which I have singled out appear to be similar in specs but having no experience with Lenovo laptops I'm reluctant to just jump in and buy one without further information.


Are these models acceptable development machines?  Anyone use either of these for running Ubuntu and able to give advantages/disadvantages of each?


Any advice is appreciated.
