With the market demand for netbooks, Lenovo introduces the ThinkPad X100e to accommodate the small-and-medium business sector looking for ultraportable laptops.
Netbooks are known to be inadequate for your typical business productivity so it’s a bit of a challenge for the business-centric brand ThinkPad to penetrate the ultraportable market. According to country general manager of Lenovo Philippines, Vicky Agorrilla, “œCustomers asked us for low cost and extreme portability without sacrificing usability or the manageability needed to run a business.”
The ThinkPad X100e did not go to the typical Intel Atom route but opted for a single-core AMD Athlon Neo instead for more power that can even support Windows 7 Professional. Couple with an 11.6″ display and ISO full-sized keyboard with enlarged, concave keys, this ThinkPad is quite comfortable to use.
It also comes with the stuff that makes the ThinkPad the laptop of choice for corporate customers, Lenovo’s ThinkVantage Technologies which are hardware-software tools that help customers deploy, manage and maintain their PCs. It is also worth mentioning that with the ThinkPad X100e, it is not exempted from Lenovo’s business-class service and support.
Aside from the typical black ThinkPad, the X100e also comes in red or white.
The most-basic configuration of the ThinkPad X100e is priced at P28,990 and only comes with DOS. Corporate clients can choose to configure the ThinkPad X100e with a variety of options like dual-core AMD processors, and different Windows 7 flavors, hard disk, etc.
