As well as 12.5-inch Intel Core-based ThinkPad Edge E220s announced by Lenovo today, they have also announced another ultraportable, this one falling into the netbook category with an 11.6-inch display. It’s the Lenovo ThinkPad X120e, the successor to the X100e. The netbook-sized ThinkPad is based on AMD’s Fusion line that was announced last fall.
While Lenovo does not refer to it as a netbook, with a price that starts at less than $400, the comparisons will be made.
Lenovo is also claiming that it’s the first commercial laptop that features the E-Series APU (Accelerated Processing Unit). The Fusion E-Series APU will definitely increase the performance available at this size and price point.
Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Specifications
– 11.6-inch display
– HDMI port
– Full-size keyboard
– More than 6 hours battery life
– Meets Energy Star 5.0 specifications
– 1″ Thick
– Weighs under three pounds
It will be available starting in February for under $400. Whether these will be single-core or dual-core models remains to be seen. It will also feature the Lenovo Enhanced Experience 2.0 for Windows 7, similar to the larger 12.5-inch Edge ThinkPads.
