Lenovo hasn’t officially introduced a 10 inch ThinkPad netbook in the US, and the company may never do so. But they are being rolled out in other parts of the globe. The NSW public schools in Australia are deploying about 60,000 ThinkPad Mini 10 netbooks to students. The laptops will be outfitted an Intel Atom processor, Windows 7, a high resolution screen, and a spill-resistant keyboard.

Netbook News spotted a news report which clearly shows something we’d already suspected: While the Lenovo ThinkPad Mini 10 has an Atom processor and 10 inch display, the chassis is the same as the one used for the ThinkPad X100e thin and light laptop. The X100e has a more powerful AMD processor and a larger 11.6 inch display.
