The comparisons between the Lenovo X300 and MacBook Air are inevitable. When
compared to the MacBook Air, the X300 does look bland (some may call it
understated). But it’s a ThinkPad, and with that lineage comes the no-nonsense
practicality that innumerable business users have been swearing by over the
years. Probably the most exciting part about the X300 is not how thin they made
it, but how they managed to make it so thin without excluding anything. The
connectivity features, ports and materials used in the X300 will put a notebook
twice as heavy to shame! It has an Intel Core 2 Duo SL7100 (1.2 GHz) and 2 GB
RAM. We didn’t expect it to be blazing fast, but it surprised us, thanks to the
fast 64 GB SSD. It also includes a DVD writer, webcam with mic, a full-sized
keyboard with ThinkLight, TrackPoint and trackpad, fingerprint scanner, 3 USB
ports, VGA out, audio out, line in, Ethernet, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It managed a
score of 3709 PC marks and 442 in 3D Mark; more than acceptable for the size and
intended usage. Battery life with the standard battery was about 3 hrs 15 min.
Probably the only thing that we really didn’t like on the X300 was the somewhat
dim screen (especially when compared to the Air). Overall, a great product, but
the price tag puts it out of reach of all but the elite.
