ThinkPad X301 – new notebook from Lenovo

  • Apple came out with the Mac Book Air a while ago and it is extremely thin. Although very lightweight, thin and with a user friendly keyboard. It does not have a lot of guts inside such as no built-in Ethernet port and no built-in DVD drive to name a few. Don’t get me wrong though, I love the MBA, I would even get one if it gets cheaper and has more built-in hardware inside.

    Lenovo announced its own version of thin labtop, for sure not as thin and sleek looking as the Air. But being able to carry a smaller and lighter labtop is always welcome. The ThinkPad x300 is getting a make over and will be named to x301.

    The specs:

  • ULV Intel Core 2 Duo U9300 (1.2GHz) or U9400 (1.4GHz) processor
  • 13.3-inch LED display
  • DDR3 memory
  • 64GB solid state drive (SSD) and 128GB SSD as option
  • WiMAX support
  • It will start at $2,599 and be launched on Aug 26. I hope the SSD technology will improve to the point where it can support 500 and up GB, nowadays I don’t think even a 128GD is going to last long.

    I use a Lenovo T61 at work, its not exactly the greatest looking piece of hardware, but I think it is light enough for me to carry around comfortably. Since it does not have a full keyboard, it still feels cramped (I was given a full size one though, so problem solved). I really want to get my hands on an X series and compare side by side with the T series. But unless my company starts replacing them, my dream will probably not come true unless I pay from my own wallet which will not happen either. :)
