Lenovo X300 Compared to Lenovo X61 Tablet PC

Lenovo X300 I arrived home today from our St. Louis trip to find a nice surprise – an evaluation Lenovo X300 Ultra-Portable Notebook.

Being the true geek that I am, I stopped dead in my tracks to take pictures, comparing it to the Lenovo X61 Tablet PC. You can expect a lot more over the coming weeks on the X300. We’ve got it for several months.

My first impressions:

  • Very light and thin. Feels almost 25% lighter than the X61. It is much thinner, especially along the front.
  • It doesn’t have the same “sexiness” as the MacBook Air, but the extra USB ports, integrated WWAN, integrated CD drive, and user replaceable battery make up for it. I played with a MacBook Air this week at an Apple store and would have bought one had I had the money. Honestly, I’d likely go for the X300 instead due to extra flexibility – but, that MacBook felt sooooo nice to hold.
  • It boots up really fast. Sorry, no times yet.
  • No slot for dock on the bottom
  • 1440 x 900 resolution is really nice and bright
  • Lenovo has done a fantastic job with the X300. Feels good.
  • When can we expect something similar for the X61? I’d love to see something just like this with Tablet PC functionality
