Yesterday I was participating in Network Solutions discussion about mobile computing (Jennifer Shaheen, Technology Therapist; Rieva Lesonsky, GrowBizMedia, Tim Gorin, MyEyeDr and Naveen Ganeshan, Network Solutions) and before we went live we were sitting around a conference table with all of our mobile gadgets – a wide spectrum. I had my Dell Vostro, Google Chromebook, BlackBerry PlayBook – to name a few – in use.
For those who travel a lot having a very thin, light, yet powerful device is still essential.
CRN writes that Lenovo continues its innovation in small and powerful computers with the XI series of notebooks.
The ultra-thin ThinkPad X1 has many of the familiar features and specifications of other ThinkPad models, yet the case measures approximately 16.5 mm at its thinnest point or about the height of a penny. “It’s the thinnest ThinkPad we’ve ever made,” Jason Parrish, ThinkPad product manager, said. “And it still has amazing performance. There’s no compromise on the CPU performance.”
The X1, like other larger ThinkPad models, offers Intel(NSDQ:INTC)’s new Core i3, i5, and i7 Sandy Bridge processors. The new ultra-thin notebook isn’t fragile, either; it comes with a 13-inch display with durable Corning (NYSE:GLW) Gorilla Glass and a light but protective magnesium chassis and roll cage that weighs just 3.7 pounds. The new X1 also comes with Lenovo’s new RapidCharge battery technology that can charge the notebook’s battery up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes, which is 2.5 faster than a typical ThinkPad battery.
No computer is perfect and the best way to find the one that’s best for you is to try it out, if you can. Ask your colleagues what they like best and hate the most in their computers.
While some computers have great keyboards, others have tiny screens. While some computers get too hot, others have great sound.
Know what YOUR needs are and then find a notebook that meets 80% of those needs.
