Will the X301 laptop be phased out of the X series line-up?

2010-08-17, 18:55 PM


The closest design that has come to the original IBM design is really going to phase out?


The build quality is the best out of all the thinkpads made by lenovo so far IMHO.

The rubberized feel inside and out is totally different to the other thinkpads and very iconic of the IBM days.


I would love to see this get a refresh with faster internal components I3 or I5 low voltage...


So can any of the Lenovo staff answer the original question whether the x301 will disappear and be replaced by the T410s? 


If the internals in the T410s were in the chassis of a x301 then that would be the perfect laptop.  :smileywink:

this is a peer to peer support site, and it is unlikely Lenovo will ever release a public statement regarding the future of the x301 line or whether they are officially phased out.


yes it is a great machine, and it will be missed. Even if there is an update it would use the ULV processor from the i5 or i7 range.
