The ThinkPad X300 notebook is a breakthrough, full-featured business ultraportable that’s vastly moreenergy-efficient than previous models and forces none of the compromises typical of other ultraportable systems. You often have to sacrifice features, durability or style for portability. But not with the X300. It’s solidas a rock, thanks to the patent-pending, carbon-fiber/glass-fiber ThinkPad “roll cage” technology and other advances such as Flash-based Solid State Drives with no moving parts. In terms of style, it’s closer to the size of an actual paper notebook than a ThinkPad notebook has ever been, measuring less than ¾th of an inch at its thinnest and starting at just 2.93 lb. Even with the ultra-thin DVD burner it’s still an amazing 3.13 lb.
And the X300 offers numerous design flourishes including a glossy bottom bezel, select illuminated buttons and — for the first time in the X Series — an integrated camera option and stereo speakers.
