The Best Alternative to the MacBook Air

29 04 2008

For the past three to four months, the MacBook Air has ruled all of the super-thin laptops. The Lenovo ThinkPad X300 may just take that lead. The base price is higher than the MacBook Air, but when you get a high end X300 and a high end Air, you end up saving about $200. The X300 has a 64 GB SSD (which takes up most of the almost $3000 price tag), 2 GB of RAM, and the same Intel Core 2 Duo CPU that’s in the MacBook Air. It also has a 1.3 MP integrated webcam, and something that’s not in the MacBook Air: a built in DVD burner. The X300 is even thinner than the MacBook Air by 3/100 of an inch. That may not be much, but for people who want an extreme portability laptop, every 100th of an inch counts! The Lenovo ThinkPad X300 even has a replaceable battery, something that may have stopped a few people from buying the MacBook Air.

I am very impressed with this laptop Lenovo put together. Despite it’s somewhat-expensive price tag, it is well worth the money!
