Conclusion: Overall, I like what Lenovo has done with the Thinkpad X120e. Like other business laptops, it feels better built than the typical small laptops sold in stores and it values a simple but functional design over flashiness. While I personally don’t care for island-style keyboards that are slowly replacing the traditional layout, the curved keys on the X120e were comfortable to type on after quickly adjusting to them.
Pros: Comfortable keyboard, Trackpoint, Clean, simple design, Better performance than most netbooks
Cons: Somewhat heavy for a netbook, Slow hard drive option, Difficult to keep clean
Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad X120e is arguably the best netbook for business, but it comes at a premium.
Pros: Fast, battery-efficient AMD E-350 processor. Fast hard drive. Best-in-class keyboard. Phenomenal navigating experience with both pointing devices and pairs of mouse buttons. Over 6 hours of battery life. HDMI port. Mobile broadband available.
Cons: A substantial premium is tacked on for its business feature. Drab design.
Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Review: Affordable Ultraportable for Business
18 July 2011
Conclusion: The X120e is an impressive piece of hardware. We love having a ThinkPad keyboard on such a small and well-built machine, especially at $500. The AMD Fusion processor gives this mini notebook the power needed to tackle business tasks and entertainment at the end of the day. The corporate black look may turn off some users, but you’re buying a business tool, not a fashion accessory.
Pros: ThinkPad Keyboard, Good Performance in a Small Package, Strong Build Quality, Battery Life
Cons: Small TouchPad, Audio Stuttering and Low Max Volume
Summary: Lenovo's marketing preferences aside, the X120e is not an ultraportable: Its screen is too small and its performance is too slow. We're not even sure why the company would want to match it against full-fledged ultraportables. But the X120e is the best netbook going. Though it's a little pricey, one typing session will convince you that the starting price for this model is more than worth it.
Excerpt: With its comfortable keyboard and very low price, the ThinkPad X120e is suitable as a second PC to serve as a traveling adjunct to a more powerful primary computer. Just don’t call it a netbook.
Pros: Low price, Very portable, Full-size keyboard, Excellent ThinkPad utilities, Decent graphics horsepower for the price
Cons: Below-average productivity and multimedia performance, No on-board optical drive or ExpressCard slot, Bland styling
Conclusion: In our SiSoftware Sandra tests, the ThinkPad X120e performed well. It's performance level wasn't in-line with Atom and Neo CPUs, but rather somewhat more powerful CPUs; that could be found in mainstream notebooks and desktops just a few months ago. The performance that AMD has been able to squeeze out of this platform is notable, and the E-350 Zacate APU is a real workhorse of a mobile chip.
Pros: Outstanding build quality, AMD Fusion platform, Great performance, Great trackpad, Matte display
Cons: Fans Always Spinning, No USB 3.0, Battery bulge (with 6-cell), High-end is a touch pricey
Conclusion: O Lenovo ThinkPad X120e é indiscutivelmente o melhor netbook empresarial, mas vem com preço alto.
Pros: Rápido processador AMD E-350 economiza energia. Dico rígido veloz. Melhor teclado da categoria. Experiência de navegação fenomenal com dispositivos de indicação e botões dedicados do touchpad. Mais de seis horas de autonomia de bateria. Porta HDMI. Banda larga móvel disponível.
Cons: É colocado um preço alto no netbook devido sua característica empresarial. Design sem graça.
