I will also vote for thinkpads.  Been a user of edge 330 with more or less
newer CPU Intel 3rd gen and vendor's HD 4000 video.  I switched to x220 with
Intel 2nd gen CPU and slightly slower video, honestly that does not bother me
at all.  Loved it since my fingers got keyboard.  Purchased a used one, no
regrets so far.  Do not see any nice comfortable laptops and I really doubt
there will be one trending.
