An anonymous reader writes: The ThinkPad has long been a favorite of IT departments everywhere and is the preferred notebook for legions of no-nonsense users. As times have progressed the ThinkPad has improved but the X300 marks the most significant change in its design since the butterfly keyboard. In addition to big changes like LED-backlighting (the first on a ThinkPad) and a widescreen display there are a number of smaller design tweaks that indicate that the X300 is the first step in a series of larger changes to the ThinkPad. The notebook has already received a number of favorable reviews, but the other changes-the ones that will ultimately trickle down to the rest of the ThinkPad line- are perhaps more interesting than this $2500+ notebook.
