Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Netbook

PCWorld: Review – Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Netbook

About the only thing PC World didn’t like about the Lenovo ThinkPad X120e is that the company calls it an ultraportable, suggesting it’s a full laptop, when in fact the reviewer says it’s just a very good netbook.

“Lenovo calls its ThinkPad X120e an ultraportable–and its new AMD Fusion CPU certainly endows the laptop with much better performance than netbooks have achieved in the past. But it’s nowhere near as fast as the average Intel Core processor-based ultraportable. Lenovo has done a magnificent job giving the keyboard a full-size feel, but the 1366 by 768, 11.6-inch display suffers in comparison to the 12- and 13-inch displays of other ultraportable laptops. Given the choice between characterizing the X120e as an underpowered ultraportable or as a wonderful netbook, I’m going with the latter.

Lenovo is king of the keyboard, and the X120e has the best netbook keyboard ever–nothing else comes close. The feel is magnificent, with none of the finger scrunching common to the breed. The touchpad is comfortable and perfectly responsive, and old-school Lenovo fans will be happy to learn that the company includes a TrackPoint eraserhead cursor control.”
