Default ThinkPad X1 Maybe Coming May 17, 2011: Fast, Thin, Rugged, Expensive

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://notebooks.com/2011/05/11/lenovo-thinkpad-x1-arrives-may-17th-struts-thin-rugged-design-video/' target='_blank'>http://notebooks.com/2011/05/11/len...d-design-video/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Lenovo hasn&rsquo;t officially announced the ThinkPad X1, but the company has now released a trailer for the upcoming ultrathin notebook that shows off the X1&prime;s features and teases a May 17th arrival date."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1305166647.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>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.</p>

I think I'd rather buy the X220. The IPS screen option and battery life are far more important than slimness and looks.
