Barely a month after
announcing the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e notebook at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the product was officially launched in Malaysia and Lenovo kept its promise to price the product below RM2,000.
The ThinkPad X100e
has an 11.6 inch high definition display and runs on Windows 7 Professional.
There´s also a full-size keyboard with a multitouch touchpad and Trackpoint.
The keyboard also features enlarged keys and an embedded number pad, while
rarely used keys like System Request have been removed.
However, Lenovo were
quick to point out that the ThinkPad X100e is neither a replacement for the
X200, nor is it a netbook. Rather, it is an entry-level ultraportable X series,
said Fen Lim, ASEAN ThinkPad product manager.
The ThinkPad usually targets business and commercial use, while
netbooks are usually used for Facebook, surfing the Internet and checking
e-mails, she explained.
"The best part
is that it also supports the business operating system, like the SAP system. So
it should not be mistaken as a netbook particularly as the screen size is
different and netbooks don´t support business operating systems. So it is for
business use and at the same time fashionable because it comes in red, white
and black," she added.
ThinkPad X100e closes the gap between IdeaPad S10e and the current light and
mobile range, which is ThinkPad X200.
Lenovo only has S10e. When it comes to ultraportable, the next in line is
ThinkPad X200 which is quite high-end and at a higher price point. So we have a
gap in between with nothing to fill. So the X100e fits in right in the centre
to meet the offerings of Lenovo. So if you want something affordable,
busniess functions but cannot afford the X200, this X100e is good for you."
The X100e also comes
with Lenovo´s ThinkVantage Technologies, which are hardware & software
tools that help customers deploy, manage and maintain their PCs. The laptop
features global availability and technical support along with a variety of

now available with models starting at RM1,669.

Lenovo also launched the new 13 inch ThinkPad Edge notebook computer that is
also designed specifically for the small to medium sized business (SMB).
for ultraportable mobility in SMB market, we still keep a lot of the classic
ThinkPad features, particularly the keyboard. It still has the legendary
keyboard feel, the touchpad as well as multi-touch functionality and track point,"
The 13 inch model
represents the first ThinkPad laptop to offer AMD dual core processor technology and AMD´s VISION Pro Technology. Additionally, users also have a choice of
Intel Core 2 Duo ultra low voltage and standard dual core processors.
