Lenovo ThinkPad X1: Amazon Price and Release Date Details By: Chris Maugham | May 7, 2011 | More In: Laptops
By now most of those who are interested in the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 will know everything there is to know about the laptop except when and how much it is available for. Well the wait is over as today we have those details for you.
Having already had specs of the 13.3” ultraslim leaked, Amazon has now listed it for pre-order and it comes in at a surprisingly high price in comparison to other manufacturers’ laptops in that range such as the Apple 13” MacBook Air.
The price is also a very precise one I’m sure you’ll at £1,292.52 which is about $2,120. For this high price customers will be getting a 320GB HDD, 4GB RAM and the latest offering from Intel in the form of a 2.5GHz Core i5-2520 processor.
Interestingly, the SSD disk has doubled in size since Apr. 26th rumor and the price has dropped from $2900 with a 160GB drive to $2100 with a 320GB drive.
Lenovo has pretty competitive pricing and the numbers are "retail" so it will be interesting to see what the pricing turns out to be.
"In terms of specs, the 0.84-inch-thick notebook will come with an Intel Core i5-2520M processor, 8GB of RAM, 160GB SSD, and a 13.3-inch display made of Gorilla Glass and with a 1,366×768 resolution. The only price and release date info thus far is courtesy of a Swiss retailer, and it looks like the X1 will cost the equivalent of a whopping $2,900 when it drops on May 20."
