Lenovo ThinkPad X120e wins 2011 CES Best in Show - Ultraportable

[ Edited ]

Wow!  Our first CES award so far this year.... It's the ThinkPad X120e !    Xavier from gives the award to Lenovo's new CMO, David Roman.   Did he say a starting price of $399?   That was IdeaPad netbook price territory last year - what a deal!    Any takers?

Congratulations. That is quite a different and super positive start compared to the X100e launch.


TO: Agotthelf (moderator) who is in the show.

Have you actually tested the X120e?


I would like to know how hot does the bottom get when runnig apps and/or videos.


The X100e (double core) has a severe overheat problem (reported in many different forums and reviews). For example, can you comfortable work on your lap with it for 20 minutes or it gets too hot? The X120e has solved the overheating issue?


thanks in advance for any report back.

Hello larango,

Lenovo did also something against the heat, the new system will run 10% cooler.

So if the X100e, for example reaches 60 degrees celsius, then the new model will run at 54 degrees. Which is much less I think.

warm regards
