Lenovo apparently sprung a leak this weekend. A leaked product roadmap has provided some details about a new ThinkPad X1 Hybrid which will run both Windows and Android, while the company’s next Android tablet will reportedly feature an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and Android 4.0 operating system.

The folks at The Verge and Engadget have also uncovered a few details about an upcoming low cost ultraportable business laptop called the Lenovo ThinkPad X130e.

The laptop will apparently be the successor to this year’s ThinkPad X120e and last year’s ThinkPad X100e.

While we know the laptop has an 11.6 inch display, weighs less than 4 pounds, and has a sturdier case design than its predecessors, there’s no information about the processor, memory, storage, other vital stats for the laptop yet.

The new model will likely be unveiled in December.

  1. i know for a fact that because they are being used by the public schools in nsw Australia it will feature a metal base plate, has been tested by having someone punching the screen and that they will be designed to be as close to indestructible as it is economical to do so and will have to be a very high quality laptop

  2.  is it just going to be a E-450 revamp of the current E-350 model, or might it be a little more exciting via the use of a 25W dual-core Llano APU?

    1. Very doubtful it’ll be the 25W dual-core, it’s claiming up to 8 hours run time, and under 4 pounds. While the performance is suppose to be only 132% better than a netbook.

  3. I have a dual-core X100e, and as flawed as it is (mostly because the processor runs hot, something they fixed in the X120e), it’s a very nice little machine for the price. Not quite as fast as a laptop, but much better than a netbook. I originally bought it as a second machine for taking with me on trips, but since my old Thinkpad’s screen conked out, I’ve been using it every day. Sure, I use it mostly for writing, surfing, and watching (non-HD) video content, but unless you need something with a bit more muscle behind it, then the compact form-factor, excellent keyboard and screen make this range of Thinkpads worth investigating.
