I own a 2008 MacBook Unibody, 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB RAM, GeForce 9400M. I was thinking of trying out a PC and this recently announced Thinkpad X120e running a Zacate E-350 caught my eye. Would the increased graphics capabilities of the Thinkpad make up for the lost CPU speed? Would this be a noticeable step down in terms of computing power?

X120e has slower CPU/VGA than your current laptop,so you may get lower performance with it.

Your MacBook is not that old and unless you want to either play games or do some substantial movie editing, I doubt you would need anything much more powerful at this stage. Also, MacBooks are best known for their user-friendliness and excellent battery life. I own a 13" MacBook which has an average battery life of 5 hours and my friend's 15" MacBook Pro is supposed to last more than 8 hours.
