Looking for a compact laptop that’s a little more affordable than the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon? The new ThinkPad X260 might not have a carbon fiber case, but this 12.5 inch notebook has a starting price of $929, which makes it almost $300 cheaper than the X1 Carbon.

Measuring 0.8 inches thick and weighing 2.9 pounds, the Lenovo ThinkPad X260 is a little thicker and heavier than the 14 inch X1 Carbon, but it does have a few things going for it, including an optional PowerBridge battery which Lenovo says could provide up to 21 hours of total battery life.

Lenovo will offer models with up to a Core i7 Skylake processor, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 512Gb of RAM, and with optional WiGig and 4G capabilities. The notebook has three USb 3.0 ports, a mini DisplayPort, HDMI, an Ethernet jack, and SD card reader.
