I have not much cared for Lenovo since IBM sold out to them.    I've 
been generally quite happy with business grade ('Latitude') Dell 
laptops...  my wife's got an XPS15 (running Windows) thats very nice, 
gorgeous IPS 1920x1080 screen, very slim, nicely made, and her new work 
laptop is a Latitude 5500-something thats also a really nice super-slim 
thing, has monster battery life, and all the latest USB C and so forth, 
but it too is running Windows 7 as thats what she needs for her 
techwriter job (Adobe Framemaker on Linux is very poorly supported).
