Lenovo X300 versus MacBook Air Comparison

Yep folks, Lenovo has decided to try and compete against the MacBook Air with their new x300 ultra-light and ultra-thin laptop. Here is a quick comparison chart between the two ultra-portables:

Lenovo Thinkpad X300 Apple MacBook Air
Processor: Core 2 Duo
Weight: 2.9 to 3.1 pounds
Thickness: 0.92 in.
Screen: 13.3 LED
Resolution: 1440X900
Removable Battery
Connectivity: Ethernet, Wi-Fi
3 USB ports
DVD drive: YES
Price: $2700 to $3000 USD

Processor: Core 2 Duo
Weight: 3 pounds
Thickness: 0.76 inches
Screen: 13.3 LED
Resolution: 1280X800
Non-Removable Battery
Connectivity: Wi-Fi Only
1 USB ports
DVD drive: NO
Price: $1800 to $3100 USD

Ok, the X300 may be a little thicker, but it has a lot more features, including 3 USB ports, an Ethernet port, and a DVD drive. I think this makes the X300 a much better option for people on the move when compared to the MacBook Air, even if it’s running XP. Business users looking for portability won’t even have to look twice before purchasing this one.
