IBM announces the new ThinkPad X Series ultraportable computer

14 September 2000

IBM has announced the ThinkPad X Series, the ultraportable notebook computer designed to provide workers on the move with a better experience in extra-thin and extra-light mobile computing. ThinkPad X Series models feature titanium composite construction to protect the X Series from the wear and tear of travel, and are slimmer than a deck of cards (about one inch thin), lighter than a half-gallon of milk (travel weight starting at 3.1 pounds) and feature a 12.1-inch TFT thin film transistor (TFT) display. These small, light and full-featured systems exemplify IBM's legendary ThinkPad heritage and expertise - including innovative design and industry- leading technology, combined with enhanced ease-of-use and connectivity solutions - in a single product.
