[IBM] Scorching Hot: 50% Off Thinkpad 12" X61s & X61 Tablet @ Lenovo (Update: Sold out!)

More offers from IBM
2:40 PM EST Saturday Update: Sold out!

2:00 PM EST Saturday Update: We're informed that due to an overwhelming response this offer will end much earlier than expected -- probably sometime within the next few hours.


Lenovo Canada has given us what we consider a genuinely great offer: 50% off on the Lenovo X61s and Lenovo X61 Tablet when you use RedFlagDeals.com exclusive code CAPRFD50X at the checkout. This offer is good until December 15 or while supplies last.

Here's the base X61s configuration for $564.50
  • Intel Core 2 Duo Processor L7500 LV (1.60GHz 800MHz 4MBL2)
  • Vista Home Basic
  • 12.1" XGA (1024x768 TFT)
  • Intel GMA X3100 Graphics
  • 1GB PC2-5300 DDR2 RAM (1 DIMM)
  • Trackpoint
  • 80GB 5400 RPM Hard Drive
  • X60s 4 cell Enhanced Battery
  • 1 Year Depot/Express Warranty
  • ~2.7lbs
And here's the base X61 Tablet configuration for $694.50
  • Intel Core 2 Duo Processor L7500 LV (1.60GHz 800MHz 4MBL2)
  • Vista Home Premium
  • 12.1" WVA XGA TFT
  • Intel GMA X3100 Graphics
  • 1GB PC2-5300 DDR2 RAM (1 DIMM)
  • Trackpoint
  • 80GB 5400 RPM Hard Drive
  • X60s 4 cell Enhanced Battery
  • 1 Year Depot/Express Warranty
These prices are far and away the lowest we seen, lower than EPP, lower than last Boxing Day... anything so far. For a Core 2 Duo (low voltage versions) 12" notebook with [rfdlink=106]Lenovo's[/rfdlink] build quality behind it, we think $564.50 is a steal. Ditto for the Tablet... Core 2 Duo and sub $700? That's awesome in our opinion.

A couple of things to note -- the screen resolution is 1024x768 (4:3 screens, not widescreen), and these don't have trackpads. These are slightly older notebooks designs and its part of the territory. Nevertheless, we think it's an awesome offer and there are at least a few RFD staff buying these. They're both very lightweight,\ and would knock the socks off any $400-$499 netbook/notebook right now in terms of overall value. Shipping is free.

I just finished my order!

I broke my other laptop so this is a welcome affordable alternative! Thought I'd have to settle with a laptop, but this is absolutely great! Can't find anything comparable even close in price!

Good price, but no widescreen kills it for me.

If "humans" are capable of the level of advancement that we have made in the last 5000 years, why is it considered normal that the other 395,000 years of human habitation has almost no technological advancement? **************USA: The land of the armed, Home of the scared******************

Price is really good - I just can't justify getting another laptop.
