Lenovo ThinkPad SL300, the new T20?
The ThinkPad SL300 was quietly released by Lenovo this week as an addition to the new ThinkPad SL Series. With its 13.3-inch screen, optional Blu-Ray drive and base price of just $769, it has to be the Ultraportable bargain of the year.
At 4.6-pound the ThinkPad SL300 is no X301 killer, but at this price, its going to tempt a lot of small business owners and soloprenuers who need to small form factor notebook for travel and Business Presentations.

With the ThinkPad SL300 you get a choice of the Intel GMA X4500 integrated graphics chipset or the NVIDIA GeForce 9300M 128MB dedicated GPU, up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, and a choice of Hard Drives to 320GB.
You can also choose the optional Intel Turbo Memory 2GB module for faster system responsiveness.
In the optical drive department choose between a Combo optical drive, DVD burner or Blu-Ray burner. With the 13.3-inch LED backlit display and a resolution of 1280-by-800 pixels this is going to be a great little Laptop for multi media presentations.
As with the other models on the SL Series the SL400 and SL500 the new ThinkPad SL300 comes with a whole range of ThinkPlus Complete IT options for the Small Business Owner.
Its a little on the heavy side to be called a true ultraportable but it packs plenty of power and features and at the price, its almost unbeatable.
