Lenovo has unveiled a minor update to its smallest and cheapest Thinkpad notebook. The company is calling it the successor of the ThinkPad X130e that was released earlier this year that featured AMD Brazos 1.0 processors (AMD E450, E350). The X131e changes things a bit by offering AMD Brazos 2.0 processors (AMD E1 1200 and E2 1800) that offer decent performance gains over E3xx processors.
It also appears that Lenovo will continue to offer this 11.6 incher with Intel Sandy Bridge processor, including choice of Celeron 867 and Core i3 2367U CPU. Check out AMD E1 1800 benchmark. Lenovo has also kept the prices below the ultrabook range – 550 dollars. Other the change in processor, we see no other difference between X131e and X130e. Here is a review of the X130e to see how it looks in person:
Other specs include – 11.6 inch display, 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, 500GB hard disk (optional 128GB SSD), up to 8GB RAM, 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB 2.0 port, VGA, HDMI and LAN port.
