ThinkPad X1 Maybe Coming May 17, 2011: Fast, Thin, Rugged, Expensive
"Lenovo hasn’t officially announced the ThinkPad X1, but the company has now released a trailer for the upcoming ultrathin notebook that shows off the X1′s features and teases a May 17th arrival date."
The X1 has gotten quite a bit of press, the raves being thinness, a fast processor, SSD, 8GB RAM, great battery with a fast recharge cycle, military-spec ruggedness (gorilla glass, somewhat puncture-proof, waterproof keyboard and somewhat drop-proof), and a backlit keyboard; the only negative so far is the estimated street-price of about $3000. This may entice me back to the ThinkPad and Windows 7 camp.
