Lenovo has been offering ultraportable ThinkPad laptops with 11.6 inch displays for a couple of years. But while the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e and ThinkPad X120e both featured low-power AMD processors, the company’s latest model will be available with a choice of AMD or Intel chips.
- 1 GHz AMD C-50 dual core processor with Radeon HD 6250 graphics
- 1.6 GHz AMD E-350 dual core processor with Radeon HD 6310 graphics
- 1.3 GHz Intel Core i3-2357M dual core processor with Intel HD Graphics 3000
The laptop will measure 11.4″ x 8.2″ x 1.1″ with a six cell battery. A 3 cell battery option will also be available for some models. The laptop has a 1366 x 768 pixel display and will be available with Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional, a 320GB hard drive, and 2GFB to 8GB of storage.
Like other Lenovo business notebooks the ThinkPad X121e will feature the TrackPoint system with a pointing stick in the center of the keyboard as well as a touchpad and mouse buttons below the keyboard. The laptop has a no-nonsense black case design, and the keyboard features flat keys with rounded edges.
