If you saw the video review of the Lenovo ultra portable ThinkPad X200 we featured two weeks ago then you might be interested in a few closer shots of the mini laptop itself in this gallery. The X200 has now been officially introduced in Korea (where the below pictures have been taken) for 1,700,000 (KRW) which is equivalent to about £750. That’s not bad, considering that it adopts Intel P8600(2.4GHz) processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory, 160GB HDD and has a 12-inch 16:9 widescreen with a resolution of 1,280×800.
If you used to use IBM ThinkPads and its been a while since you laid your hands on one, now could be a time when you consider the latest ultra portable Lenovo ThinkPad X200. It’s been voted as CNET Editors’ Choice and could be a perfect candidate for those who need something lightweight and convenient to carry around anywhere you go.
Here are the typical specs of the X200…
- Width: 11.61 inches
- Depth: 9.2 inches

Just before the video, let’s first take a look at the main good and bad points…
The good: Record-breaking battery life; strong performance for an ultraportable; comfortable full-size keyboard; wide-screen display with a sharp resolution; WWAN and GPS options.
The bad: Nine-cell battery adds significant weight; lacks an optical drive; includes pointing stick but no touch pad.
The bottom line: It lacks some basic features you may require–touch pad, optical drive–but the 12.1-inch ThinkPad X200 offers strong performance and the longest battery life we’ve seen. With a variety of connectivity options and a roomy keyboard, the X200 makes a great ultraportable for road warriors.
