Lenovo intros ThinkPad X201 series

Standard, skinny and tablet models

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Lenovo has introduced what it claims is not only the thinnest and lightest ThinkPad yet, but also the fastest ultraportable around.

The X201 is a 12.1in model and packs in a "normal Volt" Core i7 processor, the 2.66GHz i7-620M, Lenovo said. You can also opt for a Core i5 CPU, if you want a cheaper option.

The company also claimed the machine delivers a 11-hour plus battery life, though that's with an optional nine-cell battery - the standard model comes with a four-cell power pack.

A slightly thinner and lighter variant, the X201s, weighs in at 1.14kg and gets an extra hour out of that optional nine-cell battery - and presumably more from the standard one too. It's also built out of carbon fibre.

Lenovo is also preparing a tablet version, the X201t, which sports a capacitive multitouch display
