Lenovo ThinkPad X100e leaked

Here are its specs:

  • 12.1-inch screen (1280×800)
  • 1.6GHz Noe Processor
  • 3GB RAM or SSD
  • 6-9 cell Lethium-ion battery
  • Matt Kohut design
  • Windows 7

‘AMD has targeted this sector with its new Athlon Neo chipset which has more cache, an integrated memory controller and the 1.6GHz Neo is partnered with either ATI Radeon X1250 graphics, or ATI Radeon HD3410 graphics.

The higher-end option runs the Windows Vista Aero interface very well, handles some basic 3D gaming, and most importantly can play back full 1080p video. I think that it’s a master stroke by AMD from the price performance view point.’

According to thinkpadtoday, it will have Athlon 1.6GHz Neo processor with ATI Radeon HD3410 graphics or a CULV processor with the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD. I just hope Lenovo does NOT screw up the specs by putting in an Atom processor like what SONY did to the, otherwise wonderful machine, VAIO X.

We are also dearly hoping that they don’t screw thnigs up with an Atom processor. And please, please Lenovo, DON’T release it in white!

And if you do decide to release it in white, make sure its an optional color. We want all our ThinkPad’s in black.
