Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Recently I got my hands on a Lenovo ThinkPad X200s. A ultra-compact and portable 12.1″ notebook for the mobile road warriors. It is similar to Lenovo ThinkPad X200 except that it’s lighter and less powerful.

The notebook comes in the familiar clean and professional matte-black look (some argued it’s boring). But still, the design was sturdy and solid to the feel.

Right side of the notebook comes with 1 USB, 1 earphone, 1 microphone and 1 modem.

This model comes with Intel® Celeron® M processor 723 (1.2GHz, 1MB L2, 800MHz FSB) processor. I will be using this notebook for emails, word processing, chatting, etc. Nothing that uses a lot of processing power.

Keyboard is nice to the touch and no irritating rattling to disturb other surrounding folks.

The X200s comes with standard red-colored TrackPoint only (no touchpad – believe to save space).

My old IBM ThinkPad T42 comes with 15 inch screen, which I will miss dearly. Ha ha!

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200s screen was bright, clean and crisp although I was still not getting used to a the 12.1 inch yet.

I always have the feeling that my IBM ThinkPad T42 screen (left) is somewhat yellowish. This is further confirmed when I place it side-by-side with my new Lenovo ThinkPad X200s. Both notebooks are showing a blank page in Firefox.

Running PC Marks on both notebooks. IBM ThinkPad T42 did not manage to complete successfully and I didn’t bother to re-try.
