Lenovo Launches New ThinkPad Ultraportable Notebooks

One of the biggest firms in the business realm for notebooks is Lenovo. The company announced the launch of a pair of new notebook computers today that fall into the ultraportable line. The machines include the new ThinkPad X220 laptop and X220 convertible. Both of the notebooks are aimed at business users and claim to have battery runtime of up to 24 hours.

Lenovo made the trackpad on the new notebook larger and it has a new hinge latch along with a thinner profile for more portability. The notebook also has wider drain holes in the spill resistant keyboard tray and it has 50% improvement in drop test performance.

“Put simply, The ThinkPad X Series has everything a modern road warrior needs without compromises – low weight, long battery life and high performance,” said Dilip Bhatia, vice president, ThinkPad Marketing, Lenovo. “We’ve refined the mobile computing experience to make it more productive and enjoyable with features like smart PC technologies and enhanced video and voice calling.”

The X220 has 15-hours of battery life with the standard 9-cell battery and if the user adds the new external battery, the notebook is good for up to 24 hours of continuous use. The X220 tablet has 16 hours of continuous use per charge and can be connected to the external battery as well. The notebooks have lots of hardware options with i5-2520M CPU (2.5 GHz) to i5-2537M (1.4 GHz) processors with Core and Core vPro options.

The screen on the notebooks is a 12.5-inch unit with a HD resolution. The screen has Gorilla Glass to protect from scratches and has 300-nits brightness. The gorilla glass will help keep the machine from being damaged in the field. Both of the machines will land in April with pricing for the X220 starting at $899 and pricing for the X220 tablet starting at $1199.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
