					The Lenovo ThinkPad X100e is bigger and more powerful than a netbook;
it's a viable solution for anyone who has been thinking about purchasing
a netbook but been put off by the size and slow CPU.The Lenovo ThinkPad
X100e's keyboard has full-sized keys - including two big shift keys - and
also the screen includes a native resolution of 1366x768. You can type
for long periods without having getting tired, and also the screen's
resolution lets you line up two windows alongside to improve your
productivity.The bottom panel can be removed easily to expose the spare
RAM slot, hard drive and wireless module. There is also provision for a
3G module. The screws stay attached towards the bottom panel, so there's
no chance of losing them. In our WorldBench 6 benchmark, the Lenovo
ThinkPad X100e scored 49, which can be approximately twice as quick as a
netbook with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom CPU. In comparison to slimline laptops
this kind of as Toshiba's Satellite T110, which runs an Intel Pentium
CPU, the ThinkPad X100e is actually a little slow.The Lenovo ThinkPad
X100e's keyboard is really a joy to kind on and the inclusion of the
TrackPoint unit is a large plus. It makes the notebook much easier to use
when it's on your lap. There are just a few essential ports about the
edges from the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e. You get three USB 2. ports, a
Gigabit Ethernet port, a VGA port, a mixture headphone/microphone port
and an SD card slot. You don't an ExpressCard/34 slot or a built-in 3G
module. You do get Bluetooth and 802.11n wireless networking, and the
notebook also has a webcam and a microphone.Basically, the Lenovo
ThinkPad X100e is fast sufficient for running everyday office
applications, creating presentations, watching videos and undertaking
some light multitasking. You won't wish to accomplish too many taxing
tasks on it, such as edit large photos and chop up videos, but in case
you are patient enough then you can perform those tasks, too. We've
established that the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e is miles ahead of a netbook
when it comes to power and comfort, but its style is also a notch above,
in particular the spill-proof keyboard and also the solid construction
from the lid and the chassis.While the keyboard itself is really
comfortable to make use of, its layout isn't perfect. Delete is three
keys in from the corner (we're utilized to it getting exactly within the
corner), and the Fn button is precisely within the bottom-left corner,
rather than being one crucial in from the corner. (We often found
ourselves hitting the Fn button considering it was the Ctrl crucial).A
hard plastic lid surrounds the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e's display; you are
able to put pressure about the lid and twist it with reasonable force
without having puddles showing up on the screen. The hinges that hold the
screen in place are tough and perhaps provide a little as well much
resistance.The lower Lenovo ThinkPad X100e warms slightly after a couple
of hours of use, which may be annoying. There exists a fan that extracts
warm air via the left side from the chassis, and also the bottom panel
has vents.For our battery test we left the display brightness on higher,
enabled the wireless radio, disabled power management, and looped an
Xvid-encoded video. The Lenovo ThinkPad X100e's 6-cell battery lasted 2hr
37min in this check, which can be an underwhelming result for an
ultraportable with a 6-cell battery. Nevertheless, with a dimmer screen
along with a conservative energy management plan, it is possible to
obtain as much as three several hours out of it.It's the crucial
interface elements of display, keyboard and pointing devices that make
recommending this mini laptop simple. It really is a treat to make use of
when set against screen-cramped netbooks with undersized wobbling
keyboards and ill-placed click buttons.
