To compete against the likes of the MacBook Air and the Samsung Series 9 laptops, Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 forthcoming ultraportable needs to do something a little different. According to a leaked PDF, that difference appears to be a new battery tech called RapidCharge.Compared to previous ThinkPad batteries, Lenovo claims that the X1’s RapidCharge version will last three times as long. In addition, the battery will charge to 80 percent capacity in a mere 30 minutes (working out to charging 2.5 times as quickly as older ThinkPad batteries). The bad news is that the X1’s battery will be sealed, meaning you won’t be able to replace the battery yourself.In terms of specs, the 0.84-inch-thick notebook will come with an Intel Core i5-2520M processor, 8GB of RAM, 160GB SSD, and a 13.3-inch display made of Gorilla Glass and with a 1,366×768 resolution. The only price and release date info thus far is courtesy of a Swiss retailer, and it looks like the X1 will cost the equivalent of a whopping ,900 when it drops on May 20.Lenovo’s new ThinkPad X1 weights 1.36 – 1.72 kg and is designed with ultra-thin products; 21.5mm thick, the thinnest ThinkPad ever built, running Intel Core i5 built in 32nm technology, 2.5GHz Core i5-2520M CPU, 13.3-inch Gorilla Glass screen, 160 GB – SSD, 8 GB of RAM.Equipped with 13.3 inch LED-backlight display with 1366 x 768 resolution, 4-in-1 reader (SD, SDHC, SDXC, MMC), superior Multimedia capabilities, with Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0, eSata, Digital Display Port, LED backlight illuminated Keyboard, Waterproof, TrackPoint, UltraNav (Touch Pad), Fingerprint Reader, HD Camera with Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Edition OS.Finally, Lenovo’s new ThinkPad X1 is price tagged at 2,585 CHF (,920) with an expected delivery date of May 20th according to the sources.

If that price holds in the U.S., the X1 will be more than twice as expensive as the base 13.3-inch MacBook Air and more than 1.5x the cost of a 13.3-inch Series 9 model. That’s a pretty premium for a new battery tech and some extra RAM. Would it be worth it to you?
