X100e and Edge


In a
somewhat surprising decision Lenovo has added an AMD-based model to its ultraportable lineup.

The 11.6-inch Thinkpad X100e ships is based on AMD's Athlon Neo processor. It features AMD's M780G chipset with integrated Radeon HD 3200 graphics, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth and optional 3G.

In addition to the X100e the outfit will offer AMD parts in its edge Edge series Thinkpads. The Edge, randing in size from 13 to 15 inches, is aimed at small businesses and it packs a bit more punch than the X100e, as it ships with Athlon X2 and Turion X2 processors or Intel's dual-core CULV processors.

Starting at $549, Edge pricing is quite attractive for a dual-core ultraportable.
