Today, Lenovo is announcing updates to their line of laptops that are built to handle all the work that you can throw at them. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a leader in the business category of Ultrabooks and the ThinkPad Classic L, X, T, and W Series laptops have all had refreshes that build upon the performance, great battery life, and productivity that Lenovo’s laptops are known for.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon weighs less than three pounds and beats Ultrabook specifications. Lenovo understands that it can be a hassle to wait for your laptop battery to charge, so they armed this Ultrabook with Lenovo RapidCharge which charges up to 80% battery in just 30 minutes. With built in 3G you have the ability to access the web from practically anywhere without being tethered to your Wi-Fi network. This laptop is a great choice for business pros who are out and about or travel frequently because it won’t break your back when being toted around in your bag and you have 24/7 access to the internet, email, and corporate networks.
The ThinkPad Classic L, X, T, and W have all been privy to some solid upgrades that are representative of the quality and care that are trademark Lenovo. Purchase one of these laptops and you will reap the benefits of your choice of the latest 3rd Generation Intel Core Processor and Lenovo Enhanced Experience 3.0 with RapidBoot technology on selected models. This innovative work from Lenovo will boot your laptop up to 40 percent faster than a typical Windows 7 computer. If web conferencing is a large component of your 9-5, then make sure you check out the advanced video and calling features.

If you are looking to take one of these laptops to the next level make sure you investigate adding a Solid State Drive (SSD). All of these ThinkPad models have the option to include a 250GB self-encrypting SSD. This is a great storage solution if you want extra protection for sensitive files and increased performance and reliability than the alternative Hard Disk Drive.
Lenovo will start to roll out these laptops for purchase in June. Lenovo was gracious enough to send me the gorgeous light and small ThinkPad X230 to take for a test drive, so stay tuned because I will be sharing my impressions in a future blog post. This will be my first hands on experience with a Lenovo (many of my coworkers have them), so I am anxious to be able to join club of Lenovo enthusiasts.
You have no idea how bad I want one. Either the X230 or the X1. I'll pick whichever one offers me an IPS display. If both offer IPS, X1 will be my goal. I got a summer job so hopefully I can earn enough before the next college semester! :)
You have good taste in PCs, James! I hope that you are able to get one for school!
I just wish these new Lenovo were all touch screen enabled...
Why are these devices coming out with 3G radios? Also there is someplace I was reading that discussed the x230 has an addon battery boosting it to 24hrs of battery life.
@saad: Two words: LENOVO YOGA!
Won't the fast charging time affect the Li-ion battery life in a negative way? =/
I want to wipe it and put Linux on it. Just imagine how fast it would be then!
Like to get one but they are too expensive. Almost out of reach of a normal customer. Even they put there existing lines on sales but still they are expensive then Sony.
As good as these newer X, L, T, and W models look, I'm going to hold out until the actual release of Windows 8, so that I can choose either a sparkly new device made for the new OS, or one of these at a (hopefully) reduced price. Lookin' good Lenovo
