Green According to EcoGeek, the “ThinkPad X301 is one of the greenest laptops on the market.” It is also rated EPEAT Gold. Just so you know the X301 has a 13.3″ TFT LCD but is unique in that it sports a lot more pixels than other 13.3″ displays: 1440 x 900. That means more pixel real estate, a good thing in my book. You might need to squint your eyes to see really small fonts. It also touts a LED backlight for thinness, being green (no Mercury) and lasting longer on batteries. Quite green indeed.
Lenovo is having an Earth Day special for the X301. Originally priced at $2696, the X301 can be had for just $1691. Make sure to plug in this eCoupon: USPX301ED. Quite the bargain. Start customizing your X301! (The link takes you to Lenovo’s X301 Customization page.) And do it quick since the coupon expires on April 27, 2009.
But whatever you do, don’t get the faster 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo because that’ll cost you $8,402.00 extra!
