Lenovo isn't kidding around with its latest promotion. Right now, the ThinkPad X301 is available at an eye-popping $1,100 discount over its regular asking price—that's $1,249 instead of $2,349. Taking advantage of the promotion involves clicking through to Lenovo's online store, adding the X301 to your cart, and entering the coupon code "USPSAVEX301" on the checkout page.
The ThinkPad X301 isn't the newest laptop out there, but its specs can still put much newer offerings to shame: a 13.3" 1440x900 display, a 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of RAM, a 64GB solid-state drive as standard, an ultra-slim DVD burner, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a six-cell battery... all in a 0.73" package weighing in at just under three pounds.
In a market where many struggle to balance portability with functionality, this is almost like having your cake and eating it, too. The X301 offers all the trappings of a high-end ThinkPad, including a magnesium-alloy bottom cover, a spill-resistant keyboard, and a carbon-and-glass-fiber roll cage.
