Apple has the edge in design, but Lenovo looks to be leading on the feature set. The new model is the successor the previous MacBook Air competitor the ThinkPad X300.
The weight, screen size, and price side-by-side: The X300Weight: 3.1 lbs.Screen size: 13"Priced from: $2,268 The X301Weight: 3.0 lbs.Screen size: 13.3"Priced from: $2,599 Meanwhile, Levno is not alone in rolling out new product. HP unveiled the EliteBook line of laptops. Rather than the latest in an established model line (like the X301), the EliteBook announcement is a new product line of 3-poundish models aimed squarely at the mobile business market. The EliteBook 2530 introduces a formidable competitor to the ruggedized market that should have Panasonic's ToughBook team watching closely. There's also a tablet model (the 2730). But the real attention getter on these models is the pricing, starting at $1,499 for the 2530p.
