SINGAPORE – August 19, 2008 – Lenovo today announced the ThinkPad X301
notebook PC, taking the thinnest and lightest full-function notebook in its
class1, to new heights in performance. Like its predecessor, the
industry-acclaimed ThinkPad X300 notebook, the ThinkPad X301 notebook offers
cutting-edge features and technologies in a thin and light form starting at
about 1.3kg and one-inch thin. The notebook offers even greater storage capacity
with choices of either 64 GB or new 128 GB solid state drive storage available
in September. The ThinkPad X301 notebook provides on average nearly 20 percent
better performance over the ThinkPad X300 notebook due to the latest DDR3 memory
and the latest Intel® Core 2 Duo ultra low volt processor2.

“Lenovo continues to push the technology envelope by giving road warriors the
latest enhancements in solid state drive storage and digital display
technologies with the new ThinkPad X301 notebook PC,” said Ronnie Lee, Country
General Manager, Transactional Business, Lenovo Singapore. “This announcement
extends our commitment to blending ultraportability and functionality, and
equipping today’s business users with the most advanced, highest-performing
computing tools.”

New support for DisplayPort makes viewing high definition content easy and ideal
for models with the ultra-thin DVD burner. With support for both DisplayPort and
VGA, users can even watch high definition content on multiple displays. Designed
for maximum options for wireless connectivity, the ThinkPad X301 notebook offers
models with high-speed mobile broadband3 and WiFi3 to connect wirelessly to the
Internet, and also with Bluetooth and Ultra-Wideband technology to connect
wirelessly to other devices.

The notebook also includes Lenovo’s ThinkVantage Technologies, unique
hardware-software tools designed to maximize user productivity. With Lenovo’s
improved Access Connections tool, users can navigate a user-friendly interface
to easily find and access Internet and network connections. Also, Lenovo’s
improved Power Manager gives users more control over notebook functions to
enable longer battery life.

The ThinkPad X301 notebook also continues Lenovo’s focus on
environmentally-responsible design. Its 13.3-inch LED backlit display, solid
state drive storage and other energy-efficient technologies help make it rated
Gold by the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool. This designation
adds to Lenovo’s portfolio of Gold-rated ThinkPad notebook and ThinkCentre
desktop PCs.
