Lenovo is launching a new version of its 11.6 inch ThinkPad laptop. At first glance, the new ThinkPad X120e looks an awful lot like the Thinkpad X100e which has been available for much of the past year. But the new model has a few new features under the hood:
- AMD Fusion chipset
- HDMI output
- 65% faster graphics
- 30% better battery life
The ThinkPad X120e will be available starting in February, for about $400 and up. It features an AMD Fusion E-240 or E350 chip, an 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 pixel anti-glare LED display, AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics stereo 2W speakers, WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional 3G.
The X120E will be available with up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 5400RPM or 7200RPm hard drive or a 128GB SSD, and 3 or 6 cell batteries for up to 6.5 hours of battery life. The laptop measures 11.1″ x 7.4″ x 1.2″ with a 3-cell battery. It’s a bit bulkier if you add the 6-cell option.
