Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Review

28 February 2012
  • 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

  • Summary: The AMD Fusion-powered ThinkPad X120e is an 11-inch ultraportable that's better and more affordable than last year's model, making it an even better choice for small-business buyers.
  • Cons: Throwback rubberized trackpoint eats up valuable space; battery bulge; heavy chassis; more expensive than some other AMD Fusion systems.

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

Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Laptop Review

29 June 2011
  • Summary: Ultraportable budget ThinkPad. The 2011 ThinkPad X120e is the upgrade to last year’s ultra-mobile X100e and is marketed as one of the cheapest ThinkPads around. It is also the first Lenovo notebook to feature an AMD Fusion E-350 APU with integrated Radeon 6310 graphics. In this review, we will find out how much of an improvement the new Fusion processor can bring to this 11.6-inch ThinkPad.
  • Pros: Small and durable, Faster computing and graphics power, Improved matte screen, Extensive communication and connection features, Satisfactory battery life, Low temperatures even under load, Addition of the HDMI port and the better overall netbook performance due in large part by the inclusion of the AMD Fusion E-350 APU with integrated Radeon 6310 graphics
  • Cons: Protruding 6-cell battery, Slightly reduced screen brightness, Arrow keys tightly packed, Scratch-sensitive surfaces

Lenovo ThinkPad X120e review

3 March 2011
  • 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

Lenovo ThinkPad X120e

LAPTOP Magazine
4 February 2011
  • Summary: If you're looking for a lightweight business notebook at an affordable price, the ThinkPad X120e is a strong option that provides much better performance than dual-core business netbooks such as the HP Mini 5103 ($542) for hundreds less than a high-end business ultraportable like the ThinkPad X201 (starting at $900). Thanks to AMD's Fusion processor, this $579 notebook also lasts more than 6 hours on a charge.
  • Pros: Long battery Life, Well-designed keyboard, Wide viewing angles, Accurate low-light webcam, Loud speakers
  • Cons: Warm temperatures, Medicore video playback, Short palm rest
