Now, here comes another laptop that can elicit the same reaction from you...and also make you sing this '90s Pinoy Rap hit:

So, kung nanalo kami sa lotto, anong bibilhin namin? Lenovo's ThinkPad Carbon X1 will be near the top of the list. Take a look at this gorgeous mother:
Armed with a satellite-grade carbon fiber-enforced frame (the type used in aircrafts and race cars) the Carbon X1 is a badass-looking device that's tough enough to handle the rigors of daily use. Bonus points for having a facade that entices us to ogle and caress it all day long.
Also, the darned thing is classified as an ultrabook. You know what that means: It's slim as heck, at just around 13mm at its thickest point. It's also super light, tipping the scales at only 2.8 pounds. Good news for our backpacks (and our weak biceps).
Slim and light as it may be, the Carbon X1 bursts at the seams with next-gen goodies. Its specs-line is very impressive: the latest Intel Core processors, up to 8GB of RAM, an HD camera, solid-state storage (for faster performance), and a 14-inch touchscreen display. We've also been told that it has voice and gesture controls for hands-free operation. #BoomPanes
Finally, you can lay it flat on the ground as the display can be turned a full 180-degrees. Take a look at its pose below. Doesn't it remind you of a Rochelle Pangilinan split?
Now, for the SRP. There's a reason why we used Legit Misfitz's LSS-inducing song: the Carbon X1 is now available for a whopping P105,000. "Wow, pang-down na ng kotse 'yan!" you might say. Yes, you're right. But if you've been paying attention, you'll know it has both the looks and the features to at least justify that sky-high asking price.
