Lenovo ThinkPad X200: Like the MacBook Air, but drab and business-y


Apparently it’s Tuesday Laptop Madness, for Lenovo has announced a new laptop, the ThinkPad X200. It also released the IdeaPad U330, but that’s hardly as interesting.

The Intel Core 2 Duo (2.26-2.40 GHz)-powered ThinkPad X220 is supposed to compete with the useless MacBook Air, and has similar specs. It weighs 2.95 pounds and has a 12.2-inch LCD. As far as storage goes, you can select a standard 320GB hard drive, or pony up for the 64GB solid state drive. Whether or not that has any noticeable impact on your computing performance, there’s conflicting reports.

The usual wireless options are here like BlueTooth and Wi-Fi.

In other words, a tiny, fully functional laptop, just one without an optical drive.

She’ll set you back $1,199 in August when she’s available.
