ThinkPad slims down and no-computer-required photo printing
A Light Touch
IBM's ThinkPad X40 isn't on the Atkins diet, but at 2.1 pounds, this notebook PC is a mere shadow of its former self. In fact, the X40 is the lightest, thinnest ThinkPad ever. If you opt for its 4-cell lithium-ion battery, it weighs in at 2.7 pounds and runs for 3.5 hours. Add an 8-cell battery that runs for 7.5 hours, and it bulks up to 3.2 pounds. Powered by your choice of a 1.0GHz ULV or 1.2GHz Pentium M Processor, the X40 has a 40GB hard drive, 512MB DDR SDRAM and a 12.1-inch display. It also has Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports (one is powered), optional Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and emergency data recovery.
