When Lenovo launched the 11.6-inch AMD-powered Thinkpad X100e, I thought that would be as close as we get to a Thinkpad netbook. Well according to the official site, Lenovo may be planning to launch a 10.1-inch version at some point soon.
Lenovo’s support page for the Thinkpad X100e clearly lists both the Intel N450 Atom processor in addition to the AMD Athlon MV-40 that is used in current models. Also, under the display heading, a 10.1-inch LED backlit display with 1280 x 720 resolution is listed alongside the current 11.6” (1366 x 768) specs.
A 10-inch Thinkpad complete with Trackpad has been on our wish list for a long time now. This could purely be a mistake on Lenovo’s part, but we’d be very excited if it turns out to be true.
