If you've been feeling that Lenovo's ThinkPad line is a bit crowded, you're not alone. The company has decided to dismiss the X301, one of its most critically acclaimed products, to focus on the T410s, a super-thin version of the already thin-and-light T series.
According to marketing director Wang Lipin
, having both products no longer makes sense. The T410s is able to provide similar features and better hardware, all while costing less than the X301. A quick look at the website makes the logic easy to follow.
The price gap between the two systems is nearly $1,000 despite the fact that the T series
has a Core i5 processor. The X301 is forced to get by with an Intel Core 2 Duo clocked at 1.4GHz. Still, it will be sad to see one of today's most portable notebook offerings sail into the sunset.
