It looks like consumer electronic manufacturers are slashing prices in time for the Holidays (surprise surprise), and Lenovo’s no exception. The ThinkPad X201 is billed as “the ideal laptop for mobile computing, weighing in at less than 3 pounds, equipped with 12-inch LED display, and powered by Core i5 or Core i7 processor with Intel HD graphics”, and already the price is dropping by at least $400. With today’s deal, you can add another 10% off on that already discounted price to give you a Core i5 configuration for as little as $899 and a Core i7 for as little as $1079.
Battery life promises to run up to 12 hours with its optional 9-cell battery. Optional upgrades to consider: finger print reader and/or touchpad, mobile broadband, up to 8GB ram, SSD and more. In LaptopMag’s review, they honored its Editor’s Choice award to the ThinkPad X201.
