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.
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.
Summary: The X100e is a great little machine. A small version of the Lenovo I have at work. I really like the full size keyboard. This is now my travel PC. Took it to Israel. Perfect. I easily used it on the plane and it was used on our bus tour. The external CD/DVD drive will come in handy to make this a portable dvd player.
Summary: This has been very helpful and very convenient. Lenovo has a better built PC. After 3yrs. using a Samsung netbook and having to replace it with this X100e I am finding the support software for the Windows 7 has really been very smooth and very helpful in overcoming simple problems like trying to connect to the internet in strange areas, overcoming others.
Summary: This is a very nice little machine. Is just the perfect size for work on the road. Is fast, web surfing is a breeze, and has everything I need to stay in touch with friends and do work at the same time. Definitely recommend it.!!!
Holy grail of netbook sized Notebooks. I LOVE this machine.

Summary: I didn't get it halfway out of the box and I was already intrigued. I cut my teeth on Toshiba's 20 years ago and have always had a laptop with a pointing stick. I can use a touchpad, but I feel crippled by them. My first Netbook was an ASUS EEEPC 8.9" screen. I tried for a long time to get used to the keyboard, not happening. I sold it and bought a Toshiba Satellite T115D which is not considered a "netbook" by the industry, but by me it is.
Summary: In the world of 11.6 inchers, those that are not quite laptops & not quite netbooks, the Lenovo Thinkpad X100e stands head & shoulders above the competition. I ordered the bare bones, matte black model, running 2 GB mem/ 160 HD. It came standard with Windows 7 Home premium, Window's best operating system to date, which is also leagues beyond Windows 7 starter (which is featured on just about all netbooks). The screen is a non-glossy matte, yet it's absolutely gorgeous!
Summary: If you are looking for the ultra small form factor of a Netbook but would prefer not to have the ultra slow performance then the x100e is a choice you should consider. This is a true ThinkPad, complete with a fullsize keyboard and 1 yr return to depot warranty, not 90days like most consumer laptops.
Summary: At only 3.3 lbs this notebook is very light. It was also inexpensive. But the dual core performance is outstanding. Windows 7 Pro is icing on the cake. This was purchased to replace a net book used while traveling but I've ended up using it almost as much as my larger 15" notebook.
