Lenovo Gets Official with X200t, X200s Notebooks

From DailyTech: Lenovo has made official two new lightweight business notebooks. The systems are the ThinkPad X200s and the X200t. The two notebooks offer some nice feature upgrades compared to the models they are replacing.

Lenovo has set its systems apart from the competition's thin notebooks with several storage options for the machines including up to a 160GB 7200 RPM drive. Specifications for the X200s notebook include a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo processors including -- the SL9400, SL9300, and SU9300. The machine will run Windows Vista Home Basic, Business, Ultimate, or Home Premium.

Hard drive options on the X200s include 80 to 320GB 5400 RPM units, 100 and 160GB 7200 RPM units, a full encryption 200GB 7200 RPM unit and 64 or 128GB SSDs. You can bet the quoted battery run times require the miserly SSD option. The notebook supports up to 4GB of RAM and connectivity options include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Lenovo says that WiMAX will be an option later in 2008.

Weight for the X200s with the stock 4-cell battery is 2.43 pounds, the 6-cell is 2.71 pounds, and the 8-cell is 3.05 pounds. Display options are a 12.1-inch WXGA CCFL with a 1280 x 800 resolution and a 12.1-inch WXGA+ LED backlit display at 1440 x 900. No optical drive is built-in on the system.
