Lenovo ThinkPad X1

One of the biggest enemy to mobility is battery. Laptops makers have been innovating to make better batteries. But we don’t see much difference because whenever there’s a better battery, you can be sure there is a better processor that utilize it. In the end, we still get a couple of hours battery life.

Lenovo recently announced the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 which comes with “slice” battery. The Battery is non-user replaceable. But you give up this benefit for better battery life. Lenovo claims that the ThinkPad X1 battery life is 3 times as long as a normal battery. The battery also have this RapidCharge technology which lets it recharge 2.5 times than normal ThinkPad battery.

It’s able to recharge from 0 to 80% battery within 30 minutes. Power!

The ThinkPad X1 is running on Intel Core i5-2520M processor, 8GB RAM, 160GB SSD and 13.3 inch Gorilla Glass screen capable of 1,366 × 768 resolution.

All that just 0.84 inch thick. Sweet.

No news on the release date or pricing yet.
