Remember that AMD Zacate-powered ThinkPad we wrote about during CES? Well, according to the folks at Liliputing, Lenovo has pushed back its release from February 15 to March 8. The PC maker confirmed the delay via Twitter yesterday afternoon.
Delay or not, this is still a rather unique-looking little notebook. Built much like Lenovo's more expensive ultraportable ThinkPads, the ThinkPad X120e will start at a surprisingly affordable $400 with AMD's E-350 processor, an 11.6" 1366x768 display, Windows 7 Professional, a weight of less than three pounds, and battery life of over six hours. (At least, that's the figure Lenovo gave us at the show; Liliputing quotes a longer 7.5 hours.)
The ThinkPad X120e looks set to compete with systems like HP's Pavilion dm1, which also has an E-350 processor and an 11.6" display. Believe it or not, though, the dm1 is actually more expensive at $449.99. Apparently, Lenovo won't shrink from aggressive pricing with this upcoming ThinkPad. If the build quality remains as nice as what we saw at CES, the X120e should be a bargain for sure.
