Yesterday we shared a bit of news about some updated specs on the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e. Today, Lenovo has let loose with some high performance mobile PCs all carrying the signature ThinkPad trappings.

Announced today are four new mobile products:
  • ThinkPad X201 – a 12.1″ Intel Core i7-620M notebook
  • ThinkPad W701 – 17″ Intel Core i7 notebook with NVIDIA Quadro GPUs
  • ThinkPad X201 Tablet – a 12″ tablet with an Intel Core CPU
The ThinkPad X201 is a portable business notebook aimed squarely at professionals desiring long battery life and raw processing power. Usually those two features don’t mix, and certainly not on a 12″ notebook which smaller batteries, but Lenovo is touting up to 11 hours on a 9-cell battery. Pricing: $1199 for X201, and $1599 for X201s.

Finally, the X201 Tablet is a 12″ tablet PC running with Intel Core i7 CPUs. The screen is touch and pen based, and the 12.1″ can be rotated to be tablet form or as a traditional latop (ye’olde swivel screens). With an i7 CPU, this is likely the fastest performing tablet PC you will find for you major computation and multi-threading needs. Pricing $1549.

The above products isn’t just about the power and the specs, there’s also all the ThinkPad touches fans love like the magnesium body, biometric security, and crash-sensing HDDs.
