    [​IMG]
    The latest leaked Lenovo notebook is the ThinkPad X100e. The entry-level ultraportable features an 11.6-inch display (1366x768 resolution), AMD RS780 chipset and Athlon MV40 processor, up to 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. It comes standard with Windows 7 Home Premium and has WWAN wireless options. It will have a Trackpoint and a multi-gesture touchpad. Though the keyboard is a 'chiclet' style model, it is claimed to have the "legendary ThinkPad keyboard feel." The X100e will be available with 3- and 6-cell batteries, with the latter providing up to 5.1 hours of battery life. It weighs 3 lbs with the 3-cell battery and 3.3 lbs with the 6-cell.

    The starting price according to the leaked data is $449. The X100e will be available in black, white, or red colors. There is no information on availability.

    There is another Congo based 11.6" laptop that I would like to buy but isn't out yet. Please release it! For $449, it's got my name written all over it.

    EDIT: Oh no! They put the headphone jack in the front of it. I had a Sager m400a with the headphone jack in the front of it and that is pretty much the most inconvenient place you could possibly put it.

    Useless. Should've went with intel CULV than AMD... it's not even 45 nm process yet.

    I can't decide if I like it or hate it. Looks nice yet so different. Its nice to think that with this would get Lenovo business support on a small, low cost machine.

    Maybe we get lucky and Lenovo updates this ThinkPad once AMD releases its 45nm AMD Turion Dual-core Neo K625 with DDR3 800 support.

    I think it should preform almost like the Intels current CULVs, just with a better gpu included in the deal.

    Depends on what you consider "useless". I consider the CULV "useless" when it comes equipped with a 4500mhd. My interest is because this is a reasonably priced ultra-thin with decent graphics.

    We don't all use our computers for the same things, that's why there are different specs to choose from. More choice is good.

    I didn't know Sailor Moon was in here! :eek:

    Seriously though, I think it looks okay - I would prefer more battery life from a machine that size and price range, however.

    Chicklet style keyboard on a thinkpad though ... who would have thought? :)

    I like this machine among the less-than-laptop segment. I love thinkpad keyboard and the trackpoint (Actually I would love NOT to have a touchpad).

    My only concern is the processor. I don't know much about MV40, but it doesn't seem like competing against CULV processors in like 11Z or DM1. I hope they will offer an option to upgrade the processor, although we will not be able to have it with a better CPU under 500. I don't care much about graphics.

    I have been watching this market for a long long time... I have been waiting for DM1, but it seems that I got another waiting period until this one comes out.
