http://www.netbooknews.com Its true, this isn't a netbook, but if you come to the site enough you'll know that we cover mobile computing devices and since I've picked up my new working horse, the Lenovo X220 I thought I'd unbox it for you! Why did I settle on this model, well how does 23-hour battery life sound to you? The Lenovo Thinkpad X220 promises that by combining a 9-cel battery (good for 15 hours) and an external battery pack (another 8 hours). It also has 1366 x 768 IPS display, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and up to 2.7GHz Core i7-2620M CPU.
I opted for the Core i5 2540M CPU, since this is the highest end of the i5 series. I still get hyperthreading and the battery benifits are greater then the i7. Since I'm all about being mobile, I don't think the power consumption difference is out weighed by the extra battery life of the i5 series and then there is heat increase when you head into the i7 range.
Here is my unboxing video for you to enjoy, I'll get a full review to you once I spend a bit of time with my new love!
