Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X301

We review the Lenovo ThinkPad X301 laptop.

Lenovo ThinkPad X300

About a month ago, Lenovo refreshed the 13.3-inch ThinkPad X300 (a CNET Editors' Choice winner) by incorporating one of Intel's new ultra-low-voltage Core 2 Duo CPUs, adding a DisplayPort connection, and rechristening it the ThinkPad X301.

As the product name indicates, it's an evolutionary step. The ThinkPad X301's Centrino 2 components helped it post better performance scores than its predecessor without taking a huge toll on battery life.

Despite its high price ($2,920 for our review unit, which included a few upgrades) the ThinkPad X301 remains one of our favorite laptops for travelers, thanks to its stellar assortment of top-of-the-line features and excellent balance of portability and usability.
