I would wait. New Haswell CPU is releasing in about 3/4 months and from the specs, would double battery life and performance.
Yes the Haswell CPU is spec are very impressive running at 10watts. I heard that it will be out Q2 2013 with limited volume and full volume Q3-Q4 2013. This chip will change the demand and design of ultrabooks.

If price is your deciding point then you might have to wait a 1 year. But 3rd gen intel chips might drop in price as the new 4th gen chips come out...

That 256GB SSD is an optional component in many other enterprise/business Thinkpad models, so it's not like they don't have it as an optional component in their factory.
US Lenovo has the same TP twist but the 256 SSD option is never there.

Maybe the guy in charge is on vacation and this will slip by.

Never know till we get it. Even if it ships out there is no guarantee that it won't get intercepted back to their facility in GTA.

Looking at the x220 price error debacle thread, people who ordered it on the April 27th got the cancellation email on the 29th, if this was a normal time of the year I expect to get the cancellation email today or tommorow. This is quite a thrill, the mystery of what will happen makes the deal so much more appealing.

Just great. Pass up on other deals and then have this a few days later. What the hell?
