This is a pleasant surprise. Last I’d heard Lenovo had delayed the US launch of the ThinkPad X120e business-class ultraportable laptop until March. But guess what showed up on the Lenovo web site today?
The Lenovo ThinkPad X120e is now available for purchase for $399 and up. The base price gets you a laptop with an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.5 GHz AMD E-240 single core processor, AMD Radeon 6310 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 memory, a 250GB hard drive and a 3 cell, 40 W/h battery. The laptop comes standard with 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
If you want a dual core AMD E-350 dual core processor, Bluetooth, additional memory or hard drive space or a 6 cell, 56 W/h battery, you’ll have to pay extra. But I was able to configure the laptop with a high capacity battery and dual core processor for just $489, which still isn’t bad at all.
The base price also includes Windows 7 Home Premium. The ThinkPad X120e is also available with Windows 7 Professional for $50 more.
