has launched its first Fusion powered ThinkPad, the X121e based on the E-350 APU.
The business oriented 11.6-incher features a traditionally understated design and it is the only Fusion notebook in its class with a matte WXGA screen. Lenovo included 4GB of memory and 320GB of storage in the mix, along with three USB ports, WLAN/Bluetooth, HDMI and a card reader.
In addition to the multi-touch trackpad, it features ThinkPad’s trademark TrackPoint and a chiclet keyboard. It weighs 1.5kg with a 6-cell power pack and the asking price is €379, which sounds rather reasonable.
It seems like a very nice successor to the AMD Neo-based X100e, but it also has two minor downsides. No operating system is included in the price and it is still not available in retail.
