ThinkPad X100e
Starting at RM1,669
Price Updated 22 Jan 2010


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.

Additionally, the ThinkPad X100e closes the gap between IdeaPad S10e and the current light and mobile range, which is ThinkPad X200.

"Previously, 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 warranty options.

And Lenovo is also offering business-class service and support for the ThinkPad X100e. ThinkPad Protection cover repairs resulting from accidents, drops and spills, while ThinkPlus Priority Support provides 24 x 7 business-class technical support for IT professionals responsible for maintaining these PCs.  On the other hand, Lenovo Hard Disk Drive Retention lets customers keep their hard drive in case of damage or failure, ensuring that their data remains safely in their hands. 

The ThinkPad X100e is now available with models starting at RM1,669.

At the same time, Lenovo also launched the new 13 inch ThinkPad Edge notebook computer that is also designed specifically for the small to medium sized business (SMB).

"Although more 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," said Lim.

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.

It also comes with Lenovo´s spill-resistant keyboards with redesigned function keys, a multitouch touchpad and ThinkVantage Technologies

The new notebook is also available in red or black with a silver band that frames the exterior of the laptop.

The ThinkPad Edge 13 inch version is available now with models starting at approximately RM1,999. The 14 and 15 inch versions will be available starting in Q2 2010.
