Lenovo ThinkPad X130e Laptop

Lenovo announced a ruggedized laptop for students and schools. The 11.6-inch lightweight ultraportable ThinkPad X130e comes with choices of AMD Fusion E-300 and E-450 or Intel second generation Core i3-2367M ULV processors and AMD Radeon or Intel HD-powered integrated graphics, as well as wireless connectivity and multimedia tools.

Designed to be handled by kids, the ThinkPad X130e has a reinforced and extra durable top cover, keyboard and hinges. Schools will also like its performance, reliability and customizable options including asset tags, BIOS modifications, custom imaging and a broad selection of custom colors.

The ThinkPad X130e laptop has a low-light webcam enabling communication with other schools. Built-in WiFi keeps their connection while moving from class to class using Lenovo's Instant Resume function. With HDMI and VGA out, students can present their reports to the class with a projector or big screen TV.

The X130e laptop starts in less than 20 seconds using Lenovo's RapidBoot technology. Built-in self-help tools like Rescue and Recovery and Access Connections help decrease calls to school IT support, allowing students to recover damaged files and to store and connect easily to different WiFi networks.

At under four pounds, students can easily carry the laptop between classes without the need to recharge since the battery lasts the whole school day, and even long enough to start homework after school — up to 8.5 hours. Throughout the course of a typical school day, students' laptops are often subject to extreme wear and tear. To help school-proof them, the X130e has several heavy-duty features including:

  • A top cover rubber bumper to absorb impacts to the side of the laptop
  • 33 percent stronger corner to reduce the chance of damage when dropped at an angle
  • Stronger hinges to outlast even the most frequent PC user at up to 30,000 cycles
  • Reinforced and recessed ports to decrease the effects of student “wear and tear”
  • Stronger Bezel with 1.2mm thick plastic to protect the LED panel

Additionally, Lenovo offers a broad range of optional services for the ThinkPad X130e laptop, starting with custom colors. Lenovo's image services help keep IT teams focused on enhancing learning, not chasing device drivers and tediously loading images onto each PC manually. Asset tagging services help keep track of PCs left on the school bus or classroom, and Accidental Damage Protection services can help keep a check on repair budgets. And if the PC needs to be fixed, Lenovo's Hard Drive Retention service protects students' digital information.

Pricing and Availability
The ThinkPad X130e laptop will be available starting December 20, 2011 starting at $469.
