I was right there with you until I got my MacBook Air. Apple has really nailed the touchpad. It's far better than any other touchpad I've ever used. The trackpoint is good, but the touchpad done right is great. I haven't had a chance to use the force touch thing yet, but it seems to be an incremental improvement by the clear leader.
That said, the Mac keyboard is a distinct step down from the ThinkPad keyboard. If Lenovo could license the Mac touchpad, or Mac would license the ThinkPad keyboard, they would have my credit card on day 1.
