IBM ThinkPad X40

IBM ThinkPad X40

IBM launched the lightest and thinnest ThinkPad in its range, the X40. Twenty per cent smaller and 25 per cent lighter than its predecessor, the X40 features the Intel Pentium-M processor. Select models include Intel’s Centrino mobile technology. The X40 offers wireless technology via Intel 802.11b, IBM 802.11b/g and IBM 802.11a/b/g providing user flexibility. All X40 models come standard with a modem, Gigabit Ethernet and Infrared. The ThinkPad X40 also includes new features such as a powered USB 2.0 port, which supports external optical drives without a separate AC adapter, and a new Secure Digital port. The ThinkPad X40 can work with the new optional X4 UltraBase Dock, providing additional expansion options at a combined weight of less than 1.82kg. The X40 offers a battery life of up to 7.5 hours on select models with an optional 8-cell battery. With the X40, IBM is also launching Rescue and Recovery with Rapid Restore, a completely new set of tools that provide one-button relief from a broad range of common PC problems, including viruses, missing system files and corrupted software drivers. The ThinkPad X40 is available now through Tech Pacific, Ingram Micro, Cellnet and Synnex. RRP: From $2699 to $3399.
