Lenovo clearly wants to bet the field of ultrabooks powered by Intel, and has now shown two new models of its ThinkPad range to enter fully into this ultra-portables category.
ThinkPad X1 Hybrid Ultrabook
This is the ThinkPad X1 Hybrid, which inherits many of the virtues of its predecessor (the ThinkPad X1). It also offers the choice of selection of Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors with Gorilla Glass screen of 13.1 inches and upto 16 GB to run an operating system. It also allows instant start based on Android. This ultrabook also features Rapid Charge technology which allows it to charge in only 30 minutes to 80% of the battery.
ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook
ThinkPad T430u ultrabook is an “economic” laptop with an attractive design (only 2 cm thick) and a 14-inch screen that also lets you select between multiple processors and up to an optional NVIDIA GPU, plus it also qualifies for the integration of an SSD in place of the standard hard drive. The ThinkPad X1 Hybrid will appear in the Q2 2012 for a price of $1,599, while the T430u costs $ 849 and will appear in the Q3 2012.
