There’s been a rumor going around for a while that Lenovo plans to release a 10 inch, business oriented netbook. Right now, the closest thing Lenovo ThinkPad X100e. But that model has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. Now a member of the Whirlpool forums in Australia says he spotted a set of netbooks marked “ThinkPad Mini 10” at his school.
It’s possible tat the machine has basically the same hardware as the X100e, but a smaller, cheaper display. In that case, the Mini 10 would likely have the same sized chassis and a thick bezel around the display, which is how the laptops are described in the forum posting. No word on the processor or other specs, but the laptop has an isolation style keyboard and uses Lenovo’s TrackPoint pointing stick in the middle of the keyboard as well as a touchpad below the keyboard.
We first heard mention of a ThinkPad Mini 10 late last year.
