What's this? Another 11.6" ThinkPad powered by AMD's low-power Brazos platform? Believe it or not, that looks to be just what the folks at Pocket-lint came across at Computex.
Dubbed the ThinkPad Edge E125, the machine reportedly features a glossy 11.6" display, AMD Brazos guts (which, as Pocket-lint speculates, could mean an E-450 processor), and the usual array of features you'd expect from an ultraportable. There are a few nice touches, too, like a "yellow" USB port that lets you charge devices even with the laptop off, a respectably sized chiclet keyboard that's "pretty decent to type on," and a choice of TrackPoint and ClickPad for mousing.
The big question, of course, is where this machine will fit in relation to the existing ThinkPad X120e. The 120e already serves up Brazos innards in an 11.6" package, and with a starting price of $399, it doesn't exactly leave a lot of room for the upcoming ThinkPad Edge E125 to woo cheapskates. Perhaps the E125 will be a slightly more upscale design, then. (Thanks to Liliputing for the link.)
