Details about Lenovo's X1 have hit the web, this is an upcoming 13.3" laptop with an ultra-slim design. Full details at AnandTech. It doesn't beat Apple's MacBook Air in terms of thinness, but it offers pretty good performance considering its small size, and a battery that should recharge to 80 percent of its capacity in just 30 minutes.
While not quite as thin as the much hailed MBA, the X1 packs impressive specifications, especially for a device targeted at those of us used to sacrificing performance for lightweight. Headlining the device is a 2.5GHz Core i5-2520M CPU, the same processor as can be found in the 34.6 mm thick X220. Let me say that again, Lenovo managed to grow the screen and pack the same processor into a device one third less thick. A 13.3" 1366 x 768 Gorilla Glass screen, 160GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, an SDXC card reader and the excellent keyboard and build quality we've come to expect from the ThinkPad line round out the specifications. But that's not all.
