Summary: I purchased one of these little guys a month or so ago. Mine came with 4gbs ram and windows 7 64bit. It is really a well built and sturdy little laptop. I like it that the keyboard has a tray so spilled coffee won't hurt it and the hard drive is protected. It plays netflix and youtube on SD very well but stutters on HD. I can live with that. It surfs the web great with Firefox. I can do my word processing, emails, and Facebook just fine.
Decent laptop for browsing the internet. Can run a little hot.

Summary: This is a solid little laptop. Great for browsing, word processing, low demand tasks. Built to last case and frame. The CPU does get maxed out occasionally, causing it to run hot. It is also definitely worth adding another 2GB stick of RAM to polish off this machine.
Summary: I purchased this used primarily for my wife so she could work on emails and writing. I've ended up commandeering it for a bit for work myself. It's a great little laptop for what we need. Light weight, powerful and tons of memory. It doesn't have a great battery life and lacks a CD-ROM, but if you just need something to give you mobility at an affordable price, this is it.
Its an older Think-Pad that's been repaired by a noob

Summary: I got this for my trucker father-in-law to do his log books on. It arrived even before the 4th day of the 4-14 day shipping period I received. Thanks for the speedy shipping! So, upon arriving, I took everything apart and tested the RAM and HDD, everything checked out good, except the WAY in which the HDD was installed!
Summary: I paid $220 for this, refurbished. Was in all original Lenovo packaging and certainly seemed brand new. The keyboard is excellent and great for typing. I like it better than previous full size laptop keyboards that I have owned. I have never been a trackpoint user, and this thing is definitely designed towards using the trackpoint. Though it does have a touchpad, it is small and the touchpad pointers are very small.
Summary: I had the Thinkpad 100e for over a year now. There are a couple of things one should do to make it a great little machine. 1. Add memory. It will make a big difference in application performance. 2. Update Thinkpad software, particularly the BIOS, to the latest version. Use ThinkVantage software to do this. The laptop used to get pretty hot at the bottom, but after the update it becomes a lot cooler.
