Seems the x120e is being "unlaunched" in Germany (and by extension, the rest of Europe): (From a facebook post last Thursday):
Liebe Lenovo-Fans, die falsche Kommunikation eines möglichen Launch des ThinkPad X120e ist ein Fehler unsererseits und für die entstandene Verwirrung bitten wir Euch um Entschuldigung. Als global agierendes Unternehmen analysieren wir einzelne Märkte mit Bedacht und haben die Entscheidung getroffen, dass X120e nicht in Deutschland anzubieten. Wir bitten um Euer Verständnis. Euer Lenovo-Team
Lenovo fans love the false communication of a possible launch of the ThinkPad X120e is an error on our part, and for the resulting confusion, we ask you to apologize. As a global company, we analyze individual markets carefully and have made the decision that not X120e offer in Germany. We ask for your understanding. Your IBM Team

really sad to hear that..
Does Lenovo realize that it gonna create a gray/black market of X120e in Europe? Plenty of them are available on Ebay, often sold by individuals in US / Canada...
It is even more unfair to us Europeans, since the X120e is available for some people, like students in germany (link above) or Officials (In France)!

When in Europe will be available on sale x120e or mystical x121e?
I'm waiting news from the announcement in February to buy x120 and nothing ... Nobody knows nothing. This is not fine:, lenovo announcements x120e will be available in Europe and not kept the word. After 5 months of waiting, I have enough, I start looking for hardware competitors. Why acer, asus, dell, hp sell their laptops everywhere? Lenowo does not want to sell in Europe? What is the reason? Looking over a network can find many people in such a situation such as myself or who finally ordered x120e from USA without an invoice and guarantee from small companies. Whether it is the only solution? Lenovo should give push f work people who brought about this situation, they operate against the interests of the company!
The second problem is the price of Lenovo in Europe. In the USA x220i costs $889 without the rebates, which are very common, in Europe x220i costs $1399...
Why the difference, other companies do not have with such differences in prices ...

x120e has been temporarily unavailable in the US for a week or longer.
