Semi-skimmed, Celeron 723 SKU coming
Lenovo's X200s ultraportable has been around for a while now, and it's
been a popular choice for business users thanks to its low weight
compared to the regular X200. Compared to the X200, the "s" version is
some 300g lighter, it has no optical drive and it's quite pricey.
However, Lenovo is apparently planning a recession friendly version
powered by Intel's Celeron M723 CPU, with 2GB of memory and a 160GB
hard drive. So far, all X200s SKUs were powered by Intel's SL9x00
series Core 2 Duo processors, and most featured bigger hard drives or
even SSDs. Obviously, they weren't cheap, with prices starting at about
Hopefully the new Celeron-based version will have a much more reasonable price tag, we're guessing under €1000.
