Hello, World

Well, this isn’t my first blog post but it certainly is my first “hello” from my office laptop.  Yeap.  After 2.5 years of lobbying by my boss, I finally got a laptop thanks to Loudhailer (helps when the co-CEO of the Singapore office is also the product head for trade credit and PRI.  Heh).  It’s a great laptop on almost all counts (with the exception of having no on board optical drive but I can live with that).  The batt life is amazing… I’m at 84% after slightly over 1 hour of use and that’s a remaining 7 hours of usage left.  Good huh?

Anyway, here’s the specs of the X200:

  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 2.40 GHz (3MB L2 cache, 1066MHz FSB) (Montevina)

  • Screen: 12.1" widescreen 1280×800 LCD, 200 nits of brightness

  • Inputs: 95 Key Keyboard with Three Button Touchpoint
  • Buttons: Power, ThinkVantage, Volume Up and Down, Mute, and WiFi/Bluetooth On/Off Switch.
  • Slots:ExpressCard/54mm, SD card reader (5-in-1 media card reader optional, not installed)
  • Battery: Nine Cell Cylindrical (4-cell, 6-cell and 9-cell options)
  • Dimensions (with large 9-cell battery in):
    • Width: 11.61 inches
    • Depth: 9.2 inches
    • Thickness: 0.8-in – 1.4 inches
  • Dimensions (with small 4-cell battery in):
    • Width: 11.6 inches

    • 6-cell battery starting at 1.47 kg / 3.24 lbs
    • 9-cell battery starting at 1.63 kg / 3.58 lbs


    Forgot to add – another good thing about the laptop – it doesn’t heat up (which is a big problem I have with my Toshiba protege).  I’m loving this!
