Just in time to fight Samsung's X360


Just two
days ago we talked about Samsung's X360 ultra-light 13.3-inch notebook, here. Lenovo wasn't going to stand idly by while Samsung unleashed its Air-killer, so it rolled out its X301.

The X301 was announced in mid-August. It retains most design features of the X300, but raises the bar a tad higher by using Intel's Centrino 2 platform. It's powered by the new Core 2 Duo SU9400 clocked at 1.40GHz, whereas Samsung packs a 1.2GHz version of the same CPU.

This is not the only difference, some SKUs of the X301 ship with a 6-cell Li-Ion battery and weighs some 100g (3.5oz) more than the X300. Others retain the 3-cell Li-Poly battery of the X300. Another novelty is the 128GB SSD which can be found it two SKUs, and Lenovo dropped the optical drive from two SKUs as well.

The only downside is the price tag. Starting at €2319 for the cheapest SKU, the X301 is a lot pricier than its predecessor, as well as Samsung's X360 and Apple's Air.

You can find the listings here.
