Lenovo ThinkPad X1 shows up early in official clip
Lenovo effectively pre-announced the ThinkPad X1 on Wednesday with a video (below). The minute-long ad was short on details but confirmed the backlit, spill-resistant keyboard and Gorilla Glass screen. The PC builder also pledged a May 17 release date.
The X1 is already known to be Lenovo's answer to the current MacBook Air and would be an SSD-only, extra-thin 13.3-inch notebook that would still manage to carry a full-power 2.5GHz Core i5 at its heart.
Its pricing isn't known but is expected to have a high price.
