I had hoped that the Lenovo X1 was a fluke and not a precursor of things to come when it comes to screen resolution in the Lenovo product line. Unfortunately, it seems Lenovo is continuing to release high-end notebooks with commodity screen resolutions. Their flagship mobile Thinkpad x220 as well as the new Ideapad u300s both sport 1366×768 resolution displays. Their competition, the 13″ Mac Book Air and the Asus Zenbook UX31 both come with higher resolution displays and much trimmer designs. I have loved my Thinkpads over the years, but unless Lenovo offers better displays in the very near future, my next machine will likely come from another manufacturer.
