ThinkPad X300 Preorders

Lenovo's heavily rumored ThinkPad X300 is now both confirmed and tentatively available for order, a number of sites have revealed. Though not yet acknowledged by Lenovo itself, pre-order pages from Best Buy and other retailers largely validate leaks. The 13.3-inch system will be one of Lenovo's thinnest and lightest complete units with an LED-backlit display and a 64GB solid-state drive; initial hints pointed to a system weighing just 2.5 pounds. The postings contradict some rumors, however, and suggest Lenovo won't use the MacBook Air CPU, instead opting for a similar but slower 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo using the new small chip package.

The currently published X300 listings also show a system with 2GB of expandable memory and an integrated DVD-RW burner. Leaks in the past have also suggested that Lenovo's custom-order systems will include options such as GPS, WiMAX for Sprint's Xohm service, and Wireless USB for short-range peripherals. The solid-state disk helps bring the price of the system to $2,744, though no sites currently have information as to when the ThinkPad will begin shipping.
