Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Ultraportable: Hands-On

We had the opportunity to spends some hands-on time with Lenovo's ThinkPad X200 recently, the company's latest ultraportable and the smallest of the X-series notebooks.  With a 12.1-inch, 1280 x 800 WXGA display and choice of 2.26GHz (P8400) or 2.4GHz (P8600) Intel Core 2 Duo processors, the X200 is just 0.8-inches thick.  It's also being compared by many buyers to the ThinkPad X300, reviewed back in April - that machine starts at $2,268, compared to the X200's $1,385 - which is slightly thinner but, thanks to its optical drive, is actually a little bit heavier than the X200.

Lenovo has hammered another nail into the 4:3 laptop display coffin with the quiet removal of its standard ratio T61 from its online store.  It means that all of the company's mainstream notebooks - whether in the ThinkPad, IdeaPad or 3000-series lines - are only available with widescreen LCDs.  The X61 - in Lenovo's ultraportable range and produced in standard and Tablet PC versions - is now the only remaining 4:3 option.
