Lenovo ThinkPad X300 Series Notebook - The Look and Feel

Lenovo seems to be making a bit of a splash in the notebook market. We find out if the X300 sports any surprises.

Aesthetics

 

Aesthetics are not normally something one considers when buying a business notebook, since functionality is primarily the main concern. Despite this, Lenovo has taken care on the product itself, incorporating what I would consider a certain polished upper-class look and feel. The surface of the X300 is plastic, but it has a distinct rubberized feel to it. In addition, the beveled contours make the keyboard stand out. These may not be noticeable at first glance, but once in a while you may be sitting reflecting on your product, and this is where you will notice all the extra love and care that has gone into manufacturing this remarkable device.

 

In the below picture I have tried to capture some of that essence, but truly I just don't do it justice. You will have to have hands on to appreciate what I am writing here.

 

 

Security

 

This is an aspect of modern life that people take for granted. Security of data is expected to one degree or another. In the event of theft or loss of that data, it can leave a person reeling at the implications should that data fall into the wrong hands.

 

It's nice to know that Lenovo has taken that kind of consideration into account, ensuring that you have a fingerprint scanner conveniently set up right next to the track-pad. You will also notice the standard Track-point (a legacy device unique to Lenovo and in the past IBM notebooks) with associated buttons included above the track-pad.
