First seen yesterday after their specifications showed up on Lenovo's website, the X220 ThinkPad and X220 Tablet are now official.
Lenovo has made yesterday’s leaked machines official, revealing that the ultra-portable X220 and its tablet counterpart will hit stores next month. With options for Core i3, i5 and i7 configurations, the X220 ThinkPad packs a 12.5-inch, 1366x768, LED backlit, IPS display; up to 320GB in HDD storage (5400rpm), or 160GB of SSD storage; up to 8GB of DDR3; a 720p webcam; Display Port, VGA, 3xUSB 2.0 (1 Always On port; 1 optional USB 3.0 if you go for the i7-2620M CPU); and up to 15 hours from a 9-cell battery (24 if you plan on using the ThinkPad external battery pack).
As for the X220T, it's got the same options for second-gen Core i-Series CPUs; integrated Intel graphics; a 12.5-inch HD, 300 NIT WV (IPS), two-finger touch/five-finger gesture, Gorilla Glass display; 3xUSB 2.0, Display Port; up to 8GB of RAM; up to 320GB HDD storage (5400rpm), or 160GB SSD; and up to 16 hours with a 6-cell battery and the ThinkPad external battery pack. Be warned though, the X220T comes with a 4-cell as standard and while yesterday's spec sheet listed a 9-hour battery life from a 6-cell, Lenovo hasn't mentioned what kind of time users will get out of the 4-cell.
Both the X220 and X220T will be available in April, starting at $899 and $1,199, respectively.
