Been holding out on picking up a Lenovo ThinkPad x100e thin and light laptop until you could get one with 3G and GPS capabilities? It looks like the wait is over. Lenovo is selling a version of the X100e with a Gobi 2000 card which supports 3G and GPS for $649. That’s about $100 more than the exact same computer without the Gobi card.
The basic specs remain unchanged. The 11.6 inch laptop has an AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 single core CPU, ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 250Gb hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and a 6 cell battery. A cheaper model with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB and no mobile broadband sells for $449.
Lenovo’s also expected to offer a dual core version of this laptop in the coming months. But there’s no word on the pricing for that model yet.
