    Lenovo's highly-anticipated ThinkPad X300 notebook PC, designed to compete with Apple's MacBook Air is now shipping. The ultra-thin, ultraportable ThinkPad X300 notebook measures less than three-fourths of an inch at its thinnest point, or approximately the height of a U.S. quarter coin, and has a starting weight as low as 2.9 pounds. The ThinkPad X300 notebook combines a number of leading technologies such as 1.8-inch 64 GB SSD, a 13.3-inch LED backlight WXGA+ high resolution display, up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, built-in DVD burner, ultralong battery life and enhanced wireless connectivity. The ThinkPad X300 notebook starts at approximately $2,799. It is available immediately through Lenovo business partners and online at Lenovo.com.

    I like the fact that it has a built in optical drive, it does have that over the Macbook Air, it also have a user replaceable battery, and the ability to replace the optical drive with a second battery. However, it has a much slower processor, which kills it kind of, but for mobile/business apps it shouldn't be a problem.

    I like it, the comparisons are the same as newtekie's, and I do like the idea of a second battery as well.

    Very light and i hope durable, ideal for students, business people, guys on the move all the time.
