Lenovo ThinkPad X100e may reach CES

Lenovo's rumored ThinkPad netbook will launch at the start of the next year, a leak today says. It's now purportedly named the ThinkPad X100e and may ship on January 5th, just ahead of CES. System specs are only guessed at but may not necessarily cling to the Atoms found in the IdeaPads; instead, it's speculated that Lenovo may use either Intel's CULV processors or an AMD Athlon Neo.

The system is very likely to use Windows 7 and consequently won't be limited to certain criteria that Microsoft has set for what a netbook should use. The decision would allow the ThinkPad to carry a larger screen, more than 1GB of RAM and more than a 160GB hard drive, all of which are more probable for the more professional ThinkPad label than on an IdeaPad.

Previously, Lenovo has acknowledged that it's considering a netbook ThinkPad but that any project would likely include increased specifications most likely screen size.
