I have an older version in this series, the X60, and it is amazing. Built like a tank, tiny, fast, and it has tons of usb ports, a SD card slot, infared, bluetooth, wifi. It has been around the world with me many times.

The few times I have had to call tech support (a battery question, and a question about installing a bigger hard disk and moving the operating system to it) they have been totally amazing.

When I retire my x60, I will get another X series notebook.
