Lenovo ThinkPad X300

  • Summary: The Lenovo ThinkPad X300 isn’t about a flashy look. If you’re looking for flash and dash, pick up a MacBook Air. If you can handle the basic black, you’ll find a pretty decent offering, including a 13.3-inch LED backlit screen, an Intel Core 2 Duo SL7100 processor, a 64GB SSD and up to 4GB of...

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X300

Wired
27 June 2008
  • Excerpt: No one will contest the MacBook Air’s sexy little chassis, stupendously slim profile, or impossibly light weight, but its dearth of ports and lack of an optical drive have had many scratching their heads over whether it’s something they could really use on a daily basis.
  • Pros: Virtually weightless at just 3.4 pounds. Runs Windows XP as an option instead of Vista. System is quick and responsive; feels like a standard notebook, not a stripped-down ultralight. Loud speakers. Handy keyboard-illuminating light embedded in LCD panel.
  • Cons: Expensive; a standard (and larger capacity) hard drive would be just fine. Disappointing battery life (2 hours, 13 minutes). Power cord is too short. Black brick design really feeling its age. Graphics performance is middling at best.

  • Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad is very slim and light, yet it makes relatively few concessions in terms of features-- an applaudable feat. The machine has plenty of basic ports (no HDMI, S-Video or FireWire-- but that would be asking an awful lot) and an internal DVD burner.
  • Pros: Very slim, light yet full-featured. Has most everything the road warrior needs. Resolution is higher than average, which means you see more on-screen. Keyboard is excellent in the ThinkPad tradition of desktop-like keyboards with long travel and lots of tactile feedback. Strong performance for an...
  • Cons: Expensive. Battery life isn't great. Display isn't very bright and doesn't look as good as competing LED backlit displays on the market.

Lenovo ThinkPad X300 Review

Digitaltrends
22 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Lenovo has done a very good job with the X300, and if we win the lottery soon we’d choose it over the MacBook Air simply because it’s just as portable but a lot more flexible. Despite its size, the X300 makes very few compromises to achieve such a slim profile and it’s so solid construction makes it...
  • Pros: Amazingly light and portable, lots of expansion ports, feels rugged
  • Cons: Expensive, small touchpad, small hard drive
