The Lenovo ThinkPad X301 notebook will offer Intel low-volt processors. The Lenovo ThinkPad X301 will also include a solid-state drive with 128GB of data storage capacity.
Lenovo is updating the cutting edge of its ThinkPad notebook line with the X301 laptop, which will include new, low-volt Intel processors and a larger solid-state drive option, and builds on the company's much-talked-about ThinkPad X300 notebook.
Lenovo released the original ThinkPad X300 laptop in February and the ultrathin notebook received a number of favorable reviews and drew comparisons to the Apple MacBook Air. The X300 and the X301 each measure less than 1 inch thick and offer a 13.3-inch LED backlight display. Both laptops also weigh about 2.9 pounds.
The MacBook Air, the Lenovo ThinkPad X300 line and even the recently released Dell Latitude E4200 notebook, which weighs 2.2 pounds and has a 12.1-inch display, are beginning to show the limits of how far PC vendors are willing to push mobility in both the consumer and enterprise markets.
