Lenovo pulled the wraps off its new ThinkPad X300 ultraportable notebook today. Lenovo says the X300 was designed for the most demanding road warriors and is the thinnest and lightest full function notebook in its class. The X300 measures less than three-fourths of an inch at its thinnest point.

The X300 weighs only 2.9 pounds and uses a LED backlit display. "The ThinkPad X300 notebook marks a major milestone for the ThinkPad family," said Peter Hortensius, senior vice president, Notebook Business Unit, Lenovo. "ThinkPad has been pioneering notebook PC design for more than 15 years, raising the bar on innovation, and focusing on the core needs of ThinkPad users, namely quality, reliability and functionality. Our customers told us that they wanted a notebook that was amazingly thin and light, but that they still wanted their battery options, their USB ports and of course, their DVD burner. Well the waiting is over, and it's all there in the ThinkPad X300, our thinnest and lightest ThinkPad ever."
Lenovo says models of the X300 will be configured for extreme portability or maximum battery life with up to 10 hours of battery life. A built-in DVD burner can be configured as well. The system uses a 13.3-inch LED backlit display with WXGA+ resolution. The system comes with a 1.8-inch 64GB SSD and Intel Centrino processors. The machine starts at $2799 and is available now.
