$1392.95 Discount! 13.3" High-Res LED backlit ThinkPad X301 UltraPortable Laptop with Core 2 Duo Processor and 64GB SSD Drive for $1073.05 after Coupon!
this under the "I think I'm in love" category. I just received my ThinkPad
X301 and it's absolutely amazing. 13.3" LED based 1440 x 900 resolution TFT,
spill resistant keyboard (water goes straight through it), solid state drive, available
media bay for DVD, fingerprint reader, available multi-touch trackpad, incredible
build quality, all tucked into a tiny 2.9 lb carbon fiber chassis (and it barely
goes up to just 3.3 lbs with 6-cell battery and DVD burner)! The base configuration
comes with a 1.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo SU9400 processor (Intel's ultra low voltage
unit), 1GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM, 64GB Solid State SSD, fingerprint reader, 1.3MP
webcam, 802.11a/b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth, 3-Cell LiPolymer battery, Windows Vista
Home Basic, and a 1 year warranty.

This takes the originally $2466 laptop clear down to $1073.05, an absolutely
massive $1392.95 savings!
- Update: If you want the DVD burner and
6-Cell Battery, you may as well start with the "Elite ThinkPad X301" since it's
only a few bucks more and comes with 2GB memory and Windows Vista Business (32-bit
or 64-bit). BTW, I'd suggest adding the Multi-Touch Touchpad for $6, it's
a nice improvement. Also, switch the memory to 2GB in 1 SODIMM for $8,
so you can add another stick in later.
- Update 2: Sorry for the link above
going down. It's working now. Also, it appears the deal will end
6/12/09, so don't miss it.
