Lenovo to ditch premium ThinkPad X-series?

Posted on Friday, July 16 2010 @ 22:12:53 CEST by

X-bit Labs heard Lenovo plans to scrap the premium ThinkPad X-series in order to free resources to focus more on ultraportable X-series and performance T-series systems:
Lenovo Group reportedly plans to can the premium ThinkPad X300-series laptops in order to concentrate on ultra-portable X-series and performance T-series machines. The move seems to be more than strange considering the fact that there is an ongoing fight on the market of 13" notebooks for best functionality and reliability, which ThinkPad X301 seems to be winning at least on certain markets.

According to Wang Liping, a marketing director at Lenovo, ThinkPad X-series 12" notebooks command 45% of global business notebook market, reports Sina web-site. Although the number seems impressive, it should be noted that there are few manufacturers apart from Lenovo, who actually make 12" laptops for businesses. At present there are different models within the ThinkPad X-series - which was originally targeted at frequently travelling eXecutives - offering screens with 11.6", 12.1" and 13.3" diagonal. Lenovo believes that the latter will gradually disappear.
