Lenovo ThinkPad X200 - Review

Lenovo ThinkPad X200 - Review: "The ThinkPad X300, introduced last February, is easily Lenovo's greatest gem. But though it's as close to an impossible act to follow as an ultraportable can get, it has one major flaw—it costs $3,000! This was done, presumably, to give its other X-Series siblings such as the ThinkPad X200 ($1,199, direct) room to flourish. The X200 isn't likely to trump the X300 anytime soon, but it does have several things that make it a terrific business ultraportable. It's one of the first laptops to receive Intel's latest Centrino 2 platform (codenamed Montevina), including a powerful 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 processor that has a very favorable affect on battery life. Furthermore, every wireless technology imaginable is at your disposal, and your savings account won't take nearly as big a hit as with the X300."
