Well if you can wrap yourself around the kind of deal that cuts your price in half, this is what you seem to be looking at. See, the Lenovo ThinkPad X201 12.1-in tablet usually retails for about $2,064. At least, the Core i7 (yes, that’d be the quad-core model) does. But for some reason, there’s a $765 rebate on it as we speak. But to sweeten things up, there’s another 20% coupon on top of this. After everything is said and done, you’re looking at the X201 for $1,079. That’s just a little under 50% off. So, what’s the X201 you say?
The new ThinkPad X201 Tablet, weighing in at less than 3 pounds is equipped with a configurable display, including options for outdoor viewing, capacitive multi-touch and stylus pen dictation. Powered by new Core i5 or Core i7 processor and Intel HD graphics with up to 8GB RAM. Standard is Bluetooth, Intel Centrino Advanced-N Wireless, Mobile Broadband and 5-in-1 media reader. Key options include webcam, 128GB SSD, and 8-cell battery.
