ThinkPad X220: You Sexy Beast


Our X rated ThinkPad struts its stuff

I've been reading some of the press comments over the last few days about our newly introduced ThinkPad X220, and I must say I am a bit overwhelmed. It's not often that you see comments this dramatic in support of the work my team does. I thought I would share a few of my favorites here: Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Proving that Sexy, Small & Smart Does Exist in an Ultraportable "It's not everyday we say "Oh My GOD, that is one sexy beast!" but that is exactly what the ThinkPad X220 is."

Don’t worry — my reasoning is entirely shallow: I like Lenovo’s machines because of their styling, not their substance. When closed, the brutal, square-edged black cases look amazing, and I always think that you’d have to be an idiot to try and steal one: the owner could batter you about the head and upper body with it and the ThinkPad wouldn’t even show a scratch."

ThinkPad X220 review: awesome keyboard and 20 hour battery

"I have a lot of laptops come through Mobile News Manor, my home office, and rarely does one hit on all cylinders like the newly announced ThinkPad X220 from Lenovo. The X220 couples a sterling ThinkPad keyboard with a buttonless trackpad that works well, and adds a slice battery option that provides up to 20 hours of operation on a single charge.... I usually find one or two things about laptops I review that fall short of expectations, but there is nothing about the X220 I do not like." ZD Net
