Lenovo ThinkPad X100e

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X100e suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. Lenovo calls the notebook an entry-level “ultraportable,” but the X100e's diminutive 11.6-inch display and 3.3-pound weight scream netbook. Depending on how you configure it, the...

Lenovo's ThinkPad X100e is both stylish and sturdy

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e Ultra-portable Laptop

 

Currently, this is one of the most rugged and affordable ultra-portable business laptops.

Review Lenovo Thinkpad X100e Subnotebook

 

Low-cost mini Thinkpad. Flat, ultra-mobile and a constant compani

Small, lightweight, mobile; Pointing devices; Matte Screen; Extensive communication features; Good computing power for a 11 inch model

Interface arrangement not suitable for left-handers; Scratch-sensitive surfaces; Only moderate battery life; Temperature development; No docking port

11.6 inch model with similar hardware equipment can be found for example as the Fujitsu LifeBook P3010 with lower resolution, or the Acer Ferrari One 200 with a stronger processor, but glossy screen.

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e 2876 (Turion Neo X2 L625 1.6GHz, 11.6)

 

At the beginning of 2010, we were introduced to the ThinkPad x100e, an 11.6-inch Netbook-size ultraportable that offered a ThinkPad-like computing experience packed into a tiny shell. As far as making good on the promise of a truly portable ThinkPad,...

Phenomenal keyboard; sturdy build; matte screen; dual-core CPU

Battery life isn't as good as for many Netbooks; limited ports

The dual-core version of the ThinkPad x100e is a much better bet than the original single-core version. Battery life is still an issue, but it's a nice-to-the-touch 11.6-inch business Netbook.

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e Dual Core Review

 

The ThinkPad X100e is an 11-inch netbook based on AMD processors and ATI graphics that promises to outperform cheaper Intel Atom-based netbooks and provide the durability and features business users demand. We weren't too impressed with the single-core...

Solid performance ; Good battery life ; Great build quality

Still runs a little hot ; No backlit keyboard ; No HDMI or DisplayPort

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e (Dual Core AMD)

 

This ultraportable has an excellent keyboard, a dual-core AMD processor, and strong graphics, but its battery life is wanting.

We're definitely fans of the dual-core ThinkPad X100e's svelte form factor, responsive keyboard, great navigation options, and strong multimedia playback. Our tests make it clear that the dual-core AMD Turion X2 CPU offers better performance and longer...

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e Review

 

Business owners rejoice! The first affordable ThinkPad ultraportable laptop has arrived. The ThinkPad X100e is an 11-inch notebook packed with a low-voltage AMD processor, powerful ATI integrated graphics, and one of the best keyboards we've tested on...

Great keyboard ; Good integrated graphics performance ; Solid build quality at a low price

Weak processor ; Average battery life ; Keyboard not backlit

The ThinkPad X100e is an extremely well-designed business ultraportable that will no doubt meet the needs of most business travelers who are looking for a small, ThinkPad-quality laptop at a low price. That said, this configuration of the X100e falls...

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e

 

High-resolution display ; Good performance

Relatively expensive ; Short battery life for a netbook

AMD's Neo processor makes this a speedy netbook, but forget about working all day on one charge.

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e

 

Despite having an iPad on our desk, a colleague recently paid a visit to expressly check out the Lenovo ThinkPad x100e. That might seem hard to swallow, but believe us when we say that this compact, very Netbook-like ThinkPad-to-go is like a fantasy to...

Phenomenal keyboard; sturdy build; matte screen.

Underpowered for the price; battery life isn't as good as many Netbooks.

The ThinkPad x100e is essentially the ThinkPad Netbook users have been dreaming of, with one of the best keyboards we've ever tested. Unfortunately, its performance, though better than that of Atom Netbooks, comes at the cost of longer battery life.

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e review

 

Ever since we first met Lenovo's ThinkPad X100e at CES we've had it on a virtual pedestal as the perfect solution between a netbook and a larger 13- or

Compact, sturdy build ; Stellar chiclet keyboard ; Impressive graphics performance for its class

Awkward, protruding six-cell battery ; Sub-par battery life ; Gets warm after only a few minutes of use
