Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Ultraportable: Hands-On

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’s Thinkpad X300 dissected

I’m not a ThinkPad fanboy, but my experience with ThinkPad has been amazing. The X300 excites me and I’m planning to get one for myself. One lucky dude in LA was able to get a unit for himself. Like a true techie, rather than just using the laptop and brag about it, he went ahead and shares to the world on what’s underneath the X300.

Ruggedized Lenovo PC

Ruggedized Lenovo PC

So let’s say you work for Lenovo, and you write a piece about how your company (Lenovo) doesn’t currently offer a truly ruggedized PC and the next closest thing is the ThinkPad series. Then let’s say that you go to home base to do a presentation for a potential customer and on your way out you see exactly what you just wrote doesn’t exist.

Would that make you angry, or would you just laugh? Me I’d laugh, but that actually happened to a guy, when he went to Beijing where the Innovation Center is.
