Lenovo announced its latest ultraportable, the ThinkPad X120e laptop, that raises the bar for affordable business-class performance. As the first commercial laptop to feature an AMD Fusion E-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), the ThinkPad X120e blends real-world needs for faster applications and graphics processing with enhanced battery life and digital display features starting at less than $400.
The ultraportable ThinkPad X120e is small in stature by design, but it now packs an even more powerful punch for business productivity. Integrating an AMD Fusion E-Series APU gives users 65 percent faster graphics performance, which speeds up Web searches, page loads and running business applications. At the same time, the ThinkPad X120e gives users longer battery life — up to 30 percent longer — for more than six hours and meets Energy Star 5.0 specifications. It also carries the EPEAT Gold rating for its environmental attributes. Additionally, the ThinkPad X120e comes with an HDMI port for projecting content on another monitor or a TV screen.
As compact as it is, the ThinkPad X120e is designed to fit just right for business users who need to balance portability and usability. An 11.6 inch screen and a full-size keyboard give users plenty of room to work comfortably, and the contemporary ThinkPad keyboard features a progressively clean look while retaining the same comfortable feel of the ThinkPad classic keyboard.
Starting under three pounds, the ThinkPad X120e includes WiFi and optional Bluetooth and mobile broadband.
