Lenovo has once again succeeded in reducing the physical footprint of its already minuscule ThinkPad ultrabooks, as underlined by the Chinese firm’s announcement of the new ThinkPad X1 Nano which happened early in the afternoon. Behind that simple name is an impressively compact device weighing a record-low 1.99 pounds, which comes down to some 907g.

Despite the unmatched portability, the ThinkPad X1 Nano still manages to pack quite a punch processing-wise, as Lenovo turned to Intel’s Evo platform and its 11th-generation Intel Core notebook processors. Coupled with a familiar 13-inch display format (with 2K, i.e. 1440p resolution support in a 16:10 aspect ratio), 3D sound support, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, and up to 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano promises over 17 hours of standalone operation on a single battery charge, which is an amazing figure currently only rivaled by Dell’s 2020 refresh of its iconic XPS 17 notebook.

Lenovo is accepting pre-orders for the ThinkPad X1 Nano in the United States starting from today, with prices starting at $1,399. The company will begin shipping first units to early adopters early into the final quarter of the year, which could very likely mean by the end of the following week.
