Reviews for the Lenovo X121e-204562U

84% Lenovo X121e-204562U Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Budget notebook made better. The ThinkPad X120e with its AMD Fusion core marked a significant improvement over the 2010 X100e, but does the Sandy Bridge-equipped X121e bring enough to the table to supplant the award-winning X120e?

The Lenovo ThinkPad X121e 3045 is a practical, portable laptop that has a lot to offer business users – especially those that travel and work in cramped conditions like aircraft and trains. The keyboard and touchpad took some getting used to, and the lack of an internal optical drive could be a deal breaker for some. It does come at an attractive price for the build quality and essential features available.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X121e is a lovely little laptop. It's great for general all round computing, and with a suggested battery life of up to 9.3 hours it looks to us like a winner.

The Lenovo X121e is an 11.6-inch ultra-portable with a Core i3 processor and a matte screen. Perfect for professionals on business trips, this laptop is also a good companion for anyone else who moves around a lot and does a lot of document work and Internet browsing. While it won't satisfy those looking for absolute performance, the X121e is a good netbook alternative.

Comment

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.55 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
