Looks like the wait for Lenovo's MacBook Air competitor is finally over. A new, sort of tawdry, promo video on the company's YouTube channel shows off the features of Lenovo's upcoming ThinkPad X1—Gorilla Glass screen, waterproof keyboard, backlit keyboard—and confirms a release date: May 17.  

Here are some specs for those not familiar with the X1: 

  • Intel Core i5 (2.5 GHz3.2 GHz)
  • 8 GB Ram 
  • 3lbs 
  • 0.65–.085-inches thick 
  • 160 GB SSD
  • 13.3-inch Corning Gorilla Glass screen
  • LED backlit, Spill-proof keyboard
  • Estimated price: $2,900

Yeah, that's why we're excited.
