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.
