Lenovo spoils own ThinkPad X1's May 17 launch with video

updated 10:55 am EDT, Wed May 11, 2011

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.
