Product Information : ThinkPad X20

Manufacturer's product description

These small, light and full-featured systems exemplify IBM's legendary ThinkPad heritage and expertise - including innovative design and industry-leading technology, combined with enhanced ease-of-use and connectivity solutions - in a single product. Optimized for today's mobile users, the ThinkPad X20 is packed with powerful performance capabilities for personalized e-business computing. With ThinkPad X20 IBM has completed a major transition of its award-winning ThinkPad line under new designations that more clearly define the mobile solutions that satisfy specific customer needs. The X Series indicates an extra-light, extra-small ultraportable notebook computer for users who are extremely mobile. Consistent with IBM's Edge-of-the-Network (EoN) strategy, an initiative which helps customers take advantage of e-business solutions by delivering products that are end-user optimized and easy to use, ThinkPad X Series models provide a pack of powerful features. Titanium composite construction protects the X Series from the wear and tear of travel. A one-button link to Access ThinkPad and the ThinkPad Assistant provides convenient access to information users need to set up, learn about and enhance their notebook. All models feature the legendary ThinkPad keyboard with the patented TrackPoint pointing device and a ThinkLight keyboard light on top edge of display that allows for work in low-light conditions. An easy open cover enables users to open and close the ThinkPad X Series with one hand, and the innovative UltraPort connector on top of the display edge provides attaching options such as a digital camera and future products including an array microphone and wireless solution. In addition, a new, lightweight UltraBase X2 media slice allows mobile workers to take advantage of media and storage devices on the road.
