Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Review, Lenovo Ultraportable 13 Inch Laptop

Saturday, May 28th, 2011 - LAPTOP, Lenovo

Many people prefer to have a thin and light laptop for comfortableness and Lenovo answers that demand by releasing  Lenovo ThinkPad X1 thin and light laptop.  The ThinkPad X1 packs a lot of features and powerful hardware in a thin frame, but it’s interesting to note that the X1 lets go of a few key characteristics of the X300. Lenovo has transitioned to an internal non-removable battery and got rid of the optical drive.


In true Thinkpad fashion though, the X1 maintains a rugged design and internal roll cage. For the first time Lenovo has also added a chiclet-style keyboard that is both spill-resistant and backlit.

ThinkPad X1 unit we were sent is equipped with a dual-core Core i5-2520M clocked at 2.5 GHz. This is the same four thread capable processor we saw on the X220 which also features Intel HD 3000 graphics for a max TDP of 35W.

Price as configured: $1,399.00 ($1,549.00 with external slice battery)
