ThinkPad X100e Light and Thin Notebook Rumored for January 2010 Release

Is the venerable ThinkPad name getting slapped on a large netbook/ultra-light notebook? All signs appear to be yes, although many of them are speculation and rumor. Most of these thoughts are coming from ThinkPadToday which states that Jan. 5, 2010 is the date we’ll see the ThinkPad X100e with these potential specs:

  • 1.6 GHz AMD (s amd) Athlon Neo or 1.4 GHz Intel (s intc) CULV
  • 12.1-inch display at 1280 x 800
  • 3 GB of RAM
  • Integrated mobile broadband options
  • Corresponding Ultrabase

With Lenovo’s current IdeaPad line, I’d expect such a device to cost north of $600, if it does indeed appear. I’d chalk this one up to complete rumor except, there have been a fair number of photos floating around. With the legendary ThinkPad keyboards, I’m sure many would like to see this rumor come true.

Hi Kevin, we are convinced this is not NOT rumor. Whilst we don’t really go with the veracity of some of the photo’s that are doing the rounds, (please don’t let it be white!) we can confirm that we have seen a lunch date for the 5th January.
