It seems that Lenovo has accidentally unveiled the full specs for its new X220 laptop, sporting an unusual 12.5″ screen and an extended battery option serving up an astonishing 23 hours of battery life.
Windows 7 powered
The new ThinkPad X220 model comes with a new “buttonless” touchpad backed by the familiar TrackPoint navigator and supporting mouse keys, while the screen comes in the shape of a rather nice 1366 x 768 pixels IPS display.
Processor options rock up to a 2.7GHz Core i7-2620M CPU, supported by up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM with a choice of speedy Intel SSDs offering storage space up to 160GB, or HDDs up to 320GB.
The standard 9-cell battery promises an already generous 15 hours of performance but the additional external battery pack ramps things up to a huge 23 hours.
There’s also a Express Card slot, VGA port, 3 USB 2.0 ports (one ‘always on’) and an optional USB 3.0 port onboard, plus WLAN, WWAN, dual digital mics and 720p high def camera.
Extra security comes in the shape of a built in fingerprint reader and Lenovo’s well regarded anti-spill and hard drive protection features.
None more black
The ThinkPad X220 comes in the line’s traditional love-it-or-hate-it matt black finish (personally we love the austerity-class looks), weighs in at under 3lbs and measures up at 305.0mm x 206.5mm x 19-34.6m.
There’s no pricing or release date announced for this Windows 32/64 bit powered bad boy yet.
