Finally my hatred of cows and love for technology have come together in the form of a leather-bound Thinkpad. This bovine beauty is actually a stock X61 with a leather jacket which can remain attached while the laptop is in use.
It has a decent hardware lineup with a low-voltage 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM and 160GB hard drive. An 80GB external HDD is also included for backups. The true selling point, according to Lenovo, is the extra support. Yes, we too remain unimpressed.
If you ever have a problem with the Reserve — and you’re in a major city — Lenovo will fly technicians to you within 4 hours. The invite-only laptop also comes with 24/7 tech support, though you’ll have to decide if all this is worth the $5,000 price.
