Lenovo has been putting out netbooks for a while, but the company’s low cost mini-laptops are all part of Lenovo’s consumer oriented IdeaPad series. But Lenovo’s been talking about the possibility of putting out a business-class netbook as part of its ThinkPad line since April. And now Chinese web site zol.com.cn has posted some pictures of what it says is the upcoming ThinkPad netbook.
It’s possible these photos are of something else altogether, but if they’re accurate you’re looking at the Lenovo ThinkPad X200e. There’s not much information about the specs, but the laptop appears to be running Windows XP and it has both a touchpad and a pointing stick in the middle of the keyboard.
Update: ThinkPadToday reports that the laptop will be called the ThinkPad X100e and that it will be available January 5th, just in time for CES.
