Default Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Review (Updated) [TCMS]

In today's market, manufacturers have to find an aggressive way to reach out to potential future clients and offer the best possible product. You want something that's portable, yet powerful enough when you are at home plugged in. Something that's got a little punch, yet doesn't drain battery life. Something small enough to fit in your bag, yet you don't want to scroll down the page every time to check a new page. AMD might have an answer for you : APU. APU (advanced processing unit) is a CPU (central processing unit) and a GPU (graphics processing unit) merged into the same die (chip).


Lenovo has introduced this new technology recently in their new Lenovo ThinkPad X120e notebook. Let's see if it fits the bill...

And at 450$ for a pretty topped up config, it's pretty good! I'm choosing between this, or the X220

Thanks! Let me know if you have other questions, perhaps I forgot something that I could add!

But in the end ... to be honest I'd love to keep it over my ASUS UL80VT-A1 ... but my ASUS can play StarCraft 2 better ... but it's heavier and bigger .

Well due to unforeseen events, I was able to keep it for an extra day and was able to run more tests.

Review has been updated with more Performance, some 3dMark06 numbers and I now know what the yellow USB port does!

Only 4 pounds for the UL80. Don't be lazy now

Nice review, what sort of battery life did you find you got with it?

It's written in the review

Almost 6 hours of battery life with music, office work, and browsing with brightness at 1/3.

Almost 4 hours watching 720p movies at near 1/2 brightness.
