Lenovo Thinkpad X201i

The Lenovo Thinkpad X201i finally finds its way to the Philippine consumer market. A bit of a rant. My only complaint with the local Lenovo distro, is that when it comes to Thinkpad's, it looks like they are only offered to the regular consumer six months to one year after they are available abroad. 

The Lenovo Thinkpad X201i is Lenovo's high end business grade 12.1-inc (WXGA TFT 1280x800) ultraportable, competing with the like of the Apple MacBook Air. While its 1.4-inch thickness is not MacBook Air like, it's 3.4 pound weight puts it in the same category. In March 2010, when it was released, its  Intel Core i5 460M 2.53GHz processor, 4GB DDR3 Memory,  Intel HD Graphics would have made it a truly wonderful high end ultraportable. 

Today, we get this for Php62,900, while the rest of the world is getting the new for 2011 Thinkpad X220 with Sandy Bridge and a higher resolution screen. The X220 is also cheaper at launch than the X201 was last year. Nice laptop, one year too late and higher than the newer X220 is abroad. Pass for me.
