MacBook Air Killer !

21 Jan 2008  No Comments

Lenovo’s new X300 series Thinkpad was leaked on the internet by Gizmodo with the beefy features shown in the picture.

image

In terms of features it single handedly beats MacBook Air (it has a dvd buner!) but the Air just looks better.

I wonder what more can the market bring in respond to Macbook  Air ?!

UPDATE: Toshiba’s R500 (claims to be the thinnest 25.5mm thick & weights 1.7 lbs) just added 3G connectivity, Also Fujitsu’s LifeBook P1620 Tablet PC (8.9" WXGA touch screen display) can fall into the criteria. lets hope for the $3000-$4000 price tag to drop in parallel with Macbook Air $1800-$3000.

Does this mean Windows Vista didn’t live up to Microsoft Expectations !

image

No, It has nothing to do with Vista because it will be used for different purposes.

TGDaily heard from several industry sources the new OS will have a stripped and optimized Kernel called MinWin. The OS will have a Command-line Interface and windows touch features as reported by Hilton Locke in wikipedia. It looks like its aimed for servers that require more stability.

UPDATE 29-01-08: "Windows 7 not coming until 2011?" Tech Report folks posted quoting from WinVistaClub.
