    Lenovo made its AMD Brazos platform-based ThinkPad X120e available to buyers. One of the first ThinkPad laptops using AMD processors, the X120e uses a 11.6-inch form-factor, and is driven by either an AMD E-240 Fusion single-core, or E-350 dual-core accelerated processing unit, AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics, 2, 3, or 4 GB of DDR3 memory, WiFi a/b/g/n, and optional 3G HSDPA, Bluetooth 3.0. Storage options include 5400 or 7200 RPM hard drives, while battery options include 3-cell standard, or 6-cell. Windows 7 Home Premium is standard, but Windows 7 Professional can be opted for. Available in a variety of configurations, the ThinkPad X120e base models start at US $399 and $449.

    I can't wait for the x120e to come to S.A., already sold my old x100e in order to make this upgrade.

    I do wish IBM would ditch the "nipple" and the extra set of buttons associated with it. The nipple is so 1990's, completely out of date and out of place on a modern netbook. They could really clean up it's look and get rid of the HUGE thinkpad logo on the side too. NOBODY and I mean NOBODY is going to think more highly of it, and be more likely to buy it, because of that logo.

    Technically, IBM have a great design team. But the product engineers who design the final look? Throw them to the lions.

    all Thinkpads since early 90s to date look the same, is part of the tradition.

    Love it or hate it... but in my opinion I love it. I think the ideapads looks way more modern.

    Nice sense of justice. You're comparing a consumer (HP dm1z) to a business model (ThinkPad x120e).

    Uhm, they have the same parts, so getting the HP would be a bigger bargain than getting the X120e, unless you need the HSDPA modem. :p

    Is that true? Now that lenovo has taken over IBM laptops business (actually quite a long time ago, seemed like yesterday but was more like 5 yrs ago), have they let quality standards slip? Thanks for the tip-off.

    I have been using Toshiba for a few years. Never had a problem other than some of our software requires the use of serial ports, so PCMCIA cards it is.
