Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Shows Up Online, Looks Freakishly Thin

ThinkPad aficionados mourning the loss of the X300 series of ultraportable laptops might have something mighty fine to look forward to in the near future. A ThinkPad X1 has shown up at Swiss e-tailer Tell IT systems and other online locations, replete with a 2.5GHz Core i5-2520M CPU, a 160GB SSD, a 13.3-inch Gorilla Glass screen, and as you can see above, a profile thin enough to rival the likes of the Samsung Series 9 and Apple MacBook Air. 

The X1 is said to be 21.5mm thick, so it doesn't quite match those crazy cats, but -- provided we're not looking at an extremely elaborate hoax here -- it'll still be the thinnest ThinkPad by far when it launches. One 8GB stick of RAM, an SDXC card reader, and a 1366 x 768 resolution, while a price of 2,585 CHF ($2,920) sits alongside a promised delivery date of May 20th on Tell IT's website.

What we need are more powerful mini-laptops. The atom processor needs to be upgraded. Enough with making big laptops thinner!

small laptops are always so fragile, i wouldn't waste my money on something that will spend most of it's time on the way to the warranty office.

I like how they still include the nub in there.

I prefer thicker laptops because they don't seem so fragiles. Anyway, I'd prefer one of these instead of a netbook
