Lenovo ThinkPad X100e
by Mark R
Have you ever noticed that some of the latest technology just slowly leaks and leaks, and so by the time it is finally announced, it really isn’t that big of a surprise? For example, that elusive Mac Tablet we’ve been hearing so much about, and now the latest ThinkPad from Lenovo.
The X100e has an 11.6 inch display, and it has an AMD Neo processor as well as wireless connectivity options like WWAN, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth. The whole thing weighs about 3 pounds and includes a webcam and many other lovable pictures. As for the battery life, it’s pretty good at 5.1 hours.
So how much is it? It will be about $500, and available in white, black, and red. I believe that the release date is planned for January.
The X100e is “positioned to be a viable mix of the portability of a netbook with the performance of a laptop, at an affordable price”.
Too bad that they didn’t have the X100E done by Christmas. They probably could have really made a killing for the holiday. Oh well, who am I do critique Lenovo’s selling and marketing strategies?
I suppose that I’ll have to stop by Lenovo’s booth at CES in January and try it out for myself. Until then, I’ll just keep clicking away on my own laptop.
