Beside the ThinkCentre Edge 91z all-in-one PC, Lenovo is today rolling out a ThinkPad X1, an ultra-thin laptop which should make the competition weep with its durable, magnesium chassis, 13.3-inch LED-backlit Gorilla Glass-protected display and spill-resistant, backlit chiclet keyboard.
Just 17mm at its thinnest point (and goes up to 21.5mm), the Windows 7-running X1 comes with a 2nd generation Core processor, up to 8GB of RAM, Intel HD integrated graphics, an Intel SSD, a 720p camera, a 4-in-1 card reader, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, built-in speakers backed by the Dolby Home Theater v4 technologies, and a battery which lasts for 5.5 hours per charge.
The battery provided makes use of the RapidCharge technology and that enables it to be charged 2.5 times faster than a typical ThinkPad batteries, and to charge up to 80% in only 30 minutes.
The ThinkPad X1 starts at $1,399 and will be available from Lenovo's website as of later today.
