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 14-inch...

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e review: Lenovo ThinkPad X100e

 

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e

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

 

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

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad X100e is an ideal netbook for business, complete with speedy AMD parts, business software tools, and fantastic user experience.

Great keyboard. Dual pointing devices. Speedy AMD parts. Memory upgradeable to 4GB. Ships with Windows 7 Professional. Big screen and nice resolution

No HDMI or DisplayPort. Battery life isn't as impressive as Intel-based netbooks

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X100e

 

It takes a lot to build a thin and light notebook with such a low price tag. The only sacrifice the X100e makes is executive-level...

ThinkPad looks at Aspire prices. Outstanding keyboard for a machine this small. Red shell option provides 20 percent more bling for the buck

Lackluster screen, with washed-out colors. Difficult to open (and impossible with one hand). Some troubling bugginess: Machine occasionally wouldn’t reboot without removing and replacing the battery. Uninspired performance

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 ; The ThinkPad X100e with dual-core processor offers a great value for students and road warriors.

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 Review

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad range has a new baby brother, and while the company is now several generations through its IdeaPad netbooks, the ThinkPad X100e is the first CULV-style machine intended for mobile pros. It's an ambitious undertaking, certainly: can...

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...
