ThinkPad X300, competition for MacBook Air?

According to Gizmodo, details of ThinkPad X300 have been leaked:

“It appears that Lenovo have themselves a new ultralight X300 series Thinkpad—and outside of the price and release date, we have all of the specs that you need to know. At a glance, some of the major features include: a 13.3-inch LED backlit 1440X900 screen, an ultralight 2.5 pound form factor, and Intel Merom Santa Rosa Dual Core CPU (2.0 Ghz / 880 Mhz ), a 64 GB SSD, up to 4GB of DDR2 PC2-5300 memory, and 4 hours of battery life. Hit the gallery for the full details.” – Gizmodo

This is some competition from Lenovo for Apple’s latest offering MacBook Air (world’s thinnest laptop), and a new ray of hope for ThinkPad/Windows fans. It may not be as thin as Air (unconfirmed) but has a better screen resolution (1440×900 vs 1280×800) and is half a pound lighter.

One thought on “ThinkPad X300, competition for MacBook Air?

  1. There’s tons of other ultra portable laptops that compete with the mac book air. The only real thing its got going for itself is that its ‘the thinnest laptop in the world’, but there are plenty of others that are lighter. Who cares if its paper thin, if it weighs a bunch. Don’t get me wrong, the mac book air is a very nice machine, but its not the be-all end-all.
