Air Book Gets Taunted By Lenovo ThinkPad X300

Lenovo ThinkPadX300Lenovo has now officially unveiled the much talked about MacBook Air baiting ThinkPad X300 notebook PC. 

Lenovo claim it to be the thinnest and lightest full-function notebook in its class. 

“Compared to major vendors offering 13-inch widescreen notebook PCs: Sony, Dell, Apple, Asus and Fujitsu Siemens.  Full featured defined as including technologies such as built-in DVD burner, selection of USB ports, Ethernet connection, replaceable battery and more”.

The ultra-thin, ultraportable has a 13.3-inch WXGA+ display, measures less than 1.85cm at its thinnest point and has a starting weight of 1.33kg.

The ThinkPad X300 combines a “number of leading technologies” such as solid-state drive storage, a LED backlit display, ultra-long battery life (up to 10 hours) and enhanced wireless connectivity.

There’s an optional built-in 7mm DVD burner on some models.   Also included are stereo speakers, a digital microphone, an integrated camera and an integrated fingerprint reader.

It should be able to withstand a life on the road thanks to its “roll-cage” durability and the 1.8-inch 64GB SSD that provides more than twice the performance of a regular 2.5-inch hard drive – and with no moving parts – four times greater shock resistance than hard disk drives.

The notebook also comes with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processor technology, up to 4GB memory and Lenovo’s ThinkVantage Technologies.

Available immediately, the ThinkPad X300 notebook price starts from £1700.
