There’s been a rumor going around for a while that Lenovo plans to release a 10 inch, business oriented netbook. Right now, the closest thing Lenovo ThinkPad X100e. But that model has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. Now a member of the Whirlpool forums in Australia says he spotted a set of netbooks marked “ThinkPad Mini 10” at his school.

It’s possible tat the machine has basically the same hardware as the X100e, but a smaller, cheaper display. In that case, the Mini 10 would likely have the same sized chassis and a thick bezel around the display, which is how the laptops are described in the forum posting. No word on the processor or other specs, but the laptop has an isolation style keyboard and uses Lenovo’s TrackPoint pointing stick in the middle of the keyboard as well as a touchpad below the keyboard.

We first heard mention of a ThinkPad Mini 10 late last year.

  1. As we know Lenovo ThinkPad X100 Inch netbook is a business oriented netbook but the major failure point of Lenovo ThinkPad X100 Inch netbook is battery life, ruing on 3 to 4 hours. otherwise everything is perfect.

  2. Atom on x100e? Wow. Maybe you can get anythign you want when you buy 50,000 systems like Australia education department for 1:1 computing in schools

  3. Sigh…makes me long for my beloved old Thinkpad 510Cs subnote that I had some 15 years ago…
