Lenovo ThinkPad X121e


$499.00 Released June, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Available Intel® CoreT i3-2357M Processor (3M Cache, 1.40 GHz) with 17W TDP. Cheap version with Core i3 + Windows 7 pro + 4Gb ddr3 + HSDPA/3G and a-GPS + 6cells battery. VGA d-sub and HDMI outputs.

The Cons:Heavy software suite (can be disabled through Windows startup/services). Large display bezel. Quite small touchpad (like on netbooks), granular texture not always reactive.

Designed for business people on the go or students looking for a lightweight computer to bring to classes. The notebook features mid-range specs which should be enough for most applications on the go, including the occasional casual game or two but not heavy graphic rendering or hardcore gaming.
