Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad X100e - 2876-27G
Low-cost mini Thinkpad. Flat, ultra-mobile and a constant companion for an active lifestyle - that's what ThinkPad X models have been designed for. Next to the more expensive and larger X-Series models, Lenovo provides us, according to their statement, with the cheapest ThinkPad that was ever made. However one shouldn’t have too great demands on the 11-inch model. Uncover details in our in-depth review.

If you don't mind the lack of digital video out and if you don't require battery life longer than around four hours, Lenovo's ThinkPad X100e is an excellent choice, thanks to its advanced OS, superb build quality, decent specifications and class-leading usability – all while remaining easy on the wallet. However, even at under £330 that might just be one if too many, especially with some compelling alternatives available for only a little more.

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.
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.

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
MV-40: Slow single core processor for small and thin laptops. A bit faster than Atom based systems but the power consumption is also higher.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

76.5%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
