Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 laptop has gone up for sale, with the 13.3-inch ultraportable priced from $1,199. Your money gets you a 2.1GHz Core i3-2310M processor, Intel HD 3000 graphics and 4GB of GDDR3 1333MHz memory, though a 2.5GHz Core i5-2520M processor is an $105 option.
The entry-level model gets a 320GB hard-drive, though a 128GB SSD is $280 while an Intel 160GB SSD is $360. Maximum memory is 8GB, though since there’s only a single DIMM slot it’s a whopping $450 to upgrade. Bluetooth 3.0 is another $20.
WiFi b/g/n is standard, but can be upgraded with various Intel b/g/n 2X2 or 3X3 WiFi cards and optional WiMAX. There’s also the choice to fit the X1 with a $125 Sierra Wireless MC8355 Gobi 3000 WWAN card. Find out whether the ThinkPad X1 is worth the money in our full review.
