image008 Lenovo announces Edge series laptops and 1st professional grade ultraportable laptop

SINGAPORE – 4 January 2010: Lenovo today announced the ThinkPad X100e, the company’s first professional-grade ultraportable laptop. The introduction pioneers a new category of PCs for today’s business users that blends professional performance, usability and design with new color options at an extremely affordable price. The X100e also represents the first time Lenovo and AMD have collaborated to offer AMD processors on ThinkPad laptops and to leverage AMD’s VisionPro branding.

- Professional-Grade Features – Equipped with choices of AMD Athlon Neo single and dual core processors and Turion dual core processors, the X100e provides strong performance needed for multitasking and running typical office applications. The X100e comes with Lenovo’s ThinkVantage Technologies, hardware-software tools that help customers deploy, manage and maintain their PCs.

- Exceptional Usability and Design – Lenovo designed the small and compact X100e to be incredibly comfortable to use. An 11.6-inch high definition display provides ample screen real estate, and an ISO full-size keyboard with a multitouch touchpad and Trackpoint make navigation easy. The new contemporary keyboard design features enlarged keys, removal of rarely used keys like System Request and the embedded number pad. The X100e also brings color to ThinkPad with a new choice of heatwave red in addition to midnight black models.

- Outstanding Mobility – The X100e maximizes mobility with models starting under three pounds. For wireless connectivity on the go, the laptop comes with 802.11n WiFi and optional Bluetooth and 3G.
