A leaked roadmap claims Lenovo intends to release a $800 ThinkPad ultrabook in May or June 2012.
The $800 machine, which The Verge describes it as a "mainstream" product, will have a 14" display. Intel's 22-nm Ivy Bridge processors are said to be part of the formula, just like with the cheaper Asus systems. Lenovo reportedly has another Ivy Bridge-infused ThinkPad ultrabook in the works, too: a 13-inch "premium" machine with a price tag of $1300 or more. Details are slim for the time being, though; we'll no doubt find out more as we get closer to the rumored launch time frame.
