Lenovo is starting to show off its new ThinkPad X100e thin and light laptop. This business-oriented machine features an 11.6 inch HD display, an AMD processor, and a full sized istland-style keyboard. That keyboard layout makes it stand apart from most of the laptops in the ThinkPad, but like a typical business notebook from Lenovo, the X100e features a TrackPoint nub in the middle of the keyboard as well as a decent sized touchpad.

Lenovo ThinkPad designer David Hill posted a short video on the Lenovo design blog to talk about the ThinkPad X100e. You can check it out after the break.

Engadget’s Joanna Stern also got a chance to check one out recently, and she’s posted some of the first real-world pictures I’ve seen.

We’ll have to wait until review units are available before we can talk about performance. But the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e is certainly a nice looking machine, even if the 3 cell version does only get an estimate 2 hours of battery life.

  1. Why? Why would anyone want this computer? Why can’t Lenovo get this market segment right? 2 hour battery? Please….

  2. Looks great. But when a x200s can be had for just over $900 with a 9 cell battery, I think the x100e should only be considered by those on a strict budget.

    1. I really want to know where you can get an X200s with the 9-cell battery for only $900.

      Everywhere I’ve seen it it’s well over a grand…

      X100e is for the ~$500 market.
