What no Macbook Air thickness comparison?
This is thinner :-)
Glad Apple didn't keep their phoney title (it was never true anyway) for long.
Lenovo has introduced its latest sub-notebook, the 1.42kg ThinkPad X300, in Japan ahead of its Western debut. The X300 packs a 13in widescreen 1440 x 900 display lit with an LED backlight, but when closed is just 18.6mm thick. It still features an integrated dual-layer DVD writer. The machine's based on a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 …
I have the nc2400, which is the model before the 2510, and I REALLY want to swap mine for the new one.(MAybe if my boss looks away while I configure one for another employee... )
1.2Kg, OK battery life, SD-slot, and can come with a built-in Sierra wireless card...
And yes, you want to avoid running Vista on it.
Thinkpads are generally really well made, though I personally can't stand their keyboards. I have a friend with a Thinkpad tablet which he has stepped on a few times, and it still works great, and he isn't a small guy at all.
Thickness isn't a real performance metric for laptops. As long as they're not absurdly thick, then weight is the stat you look for. And this thing weighs significantly less than the Air. Honestly I think that it weighs less than just about any laptop with an optical drive, definitely less than anything with that size of screen.
I'm so glad people started finally going with higher resolution on the 13 inch LCDs. There was no reason for me to even consider one when I can get the same number of pixels on a screen thats 3 inches smaller.
I'd probably get a Fujitsu P8010... but thats probably just because I like smallish Lifebooks.
I don't know what spec was read by the person who said the X300 weighs "significantly less than the Air", but according to Apple's website, the Macbook Air weighs 1.36 kg. ("Actual weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process")
Nonetheless, the X300 seems like a much more usable machine. Are we all aware that the Air has *no*ethernet*port*??? And a lot of other missing bits.
I will grant you, the Air is very pretty, but.. well, Paris H isn't too bad either if we limit ourselves to such parameters..
Because HP needs to die. Slowly and painfully for maximum satisfaction, but plain bog-standard dying will do. Including specifically Capellas and Fiorina, who've gone elsewhere.
You know their slogan? "HP - Invent". They stopped after inventing how to make money from pigments, and they wouldn't know excellent tech if it did the full-blown extended hardcore dancing on the piano act, with a strobe-lit fluo-hot-pink tutu and accompanied by several dozen Klaxons and a couple of air-raid sirens.
This looks like a nice upgrade for the T series thinkpads.
But what I'd really like is a widescreen upgrade for the X series: same width as an X60 but not quite as deep, and with a higher resolution screen.
I hope that branding this laptop as the X300 doesn't mean the X series will be growing in size
I want one! Mac notebooks do not have this super efficient tool on them. I hate notebooks without them. The pointerstick saves so much time!!
This is a very nice notebook. It would be nice to have Firewire port and a eSata port too but oh well.
I think I may be buying me one of these in the future and put a Kalyway OS X on it. Unless Apple decides to sell their OS for Non-Mac hardware.
Nice stuff! I especially like the SDD! Have to swap it out with a Mtron or Samsung 128 GB!
