Lenovo's X300 in Pictures

Lenovo's much-anticipated ThinkPad X300 notebook computer has hit the streets, bringing to market the company's thinnest, lightest notebook to date and giving Apple's MacBook Air an ultra-thin competitor.

The ThinkPad X300 is about three-quarters of an inch thick at its thinnest point and features a 13.3-inch LED backlit display.

Unlike the MacBook Air, the X300 also has WiMax, WLAN and GB Ethernet connectivity as well as GPS capabilities.

Lenovo's X300 also wins points for fitting incorporating a removable battery into its ultra-thin machine, as well as a DVD-burner. Apple's MacBook achieves its slim form factor at the expense of features like these that many business users find essential.

While its thinnest point matches the MacBook Air's thickest, the Lenovo ThinkPad X300 still comes in at a remarkable 2.9 pounds.

The ThinkPad X300 is Lenovo's first EPEAT Gold rated notebook computer, meeting the environmental regulator's highest standards for energy efficiency, recycling and environmentally-friendly packaging.
