Slimmer than Kate Moss after a month on the Slender diet is Lenovo’s gorgeous ThinkPad X1 laptop, details of which have just shimmied on to the InterWebs.

Not quite as anorexic as a Samsung Series 9 or Apple MacBook Air, the X1 is still a mere slip of a thing at 21.5mm thick, and will take the crown as the thinnest ThinkPad by miles.

The specs continue to impress with 8GB of onboard RAM and an SDXC card reader, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, with a price tag of 2,585 CHF ($2,920) set to challenge wallets.

Although this release hasn’t been officially confirmed by Lenovo, the photos look convincing enough, and the laptop should emerge blinking into the light on May 20th.

  1. How is this not a complete joke of a product if it costs $3000? Even with “rock-solid” reliability, what kinda sucker is going to buy this?

    Oh yea? Crushes it huh. I’d say it’s better than the air, sure, but crush sounds extreme. Like making the air completely obsolete due to the sheer computing power of the x1?

    I’m also assuming it’s $2,920 usd and I am probably mistaken because that seems too high for a laptop in this day and age. After the conversion, what is the price in usd?
