There is something a little unusual about Lenovo’s new X100e laptop; inside you will find a single core Athlon Neo MV40 CPU, not an Intel Atom.  Even though it retains the smaller size of the X series, it still has a 11.6″ 1366 x 768 display, along with 4GB of RAM, a Realtek 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, and a 5200RPM HDD of 160GB to 320GB.  The 6 cell battery does interfere with the style of the notebook so you will have to decide between keeping the sleek lines or longer battery life.  According to the Hardware Zone it should now be available so check out their preview if the specs interest you.

“Lenovo has sneaked in a tiny manifestation under its X-series belt. Here’s a preview of the Athlon Neo-based X100e notebook, branded by Lenovo as an ultraportable for executives. Hopefully, it’ll retain most of the charms of the brand’s venerable ThinkPad.”
