Lenovo’s amazing new ThinkPad X300 ultraportable notebook is the thinnest ThinkPad ever – less than 19mm at its thinnest. It’s light too, just 1.4 kg.
Advanced components on the X300 include Solid State storage drives (with no moving parts, they consume less power and are considered less likely to break down than traditional hard drives). The X300 also offers several wireless connectivity options including integrated Wireless WAN and Wlan.
Style-wise, the X300 is closer to the size of an actual paper notebook than a ThinkPad notebook has ever been. And it offers numerous design flourishes including a glossy bottom bezel, select illuminated buttons, and stereo speakers.
'Greenest' Thinkpad Ever
In addition, ThinkPad X300 is the first Lenovo notebook rated EPEAT Gold for low energy use and minimal impact on the environment. It also meets the European Union’s Reduction of Hazardous Substances standards. And it is Energy Star 4.0 qualified!
"Theoretically, the solid state disk should also lead to greater battery life,
and with the three-cell battery in place the X300 lasted for
a highly respectable 3hrs 58 mins." -PC Pro May 2008
