Lenovo ThinkPad X100e, Edge get hard specs

Lenovo's AMD-based ThinkPads in spec leaks

Two of Lenovo's first notebooks to use AMD processors have been given hard specs in a German leak. True to form, the ThinkPad X100e is now known to be Lenovo's first portable in between netbooks and notebooks and should use a 1.6GHz Athlon Neo, an 11.6-inch 1366x768 display and a multi-touch trackpad. Configurations will vary but should hold up to 4GB of RAM, a 3- or 6-cell battery, and between 160GB and 500GB of hard drive space.

The system will come with as little as Windows 7 Starter but scale up to Professional and is notable as one of Lenovo's first systems with a "chiclet" keyboard. Base pricing for the X100e is expected to start at below $500, though options like 3G and Bluetooth will push this upward.

Previously unseen, a new model known as the ThinkPad Edge will be an upsized relative of the X100e and carry a 13.3-inch display along with faster processors to match. AMD will remain an option with low-power, dual-core 1.5GHz Athlon Neo X2 and 1.6GHz Turion X2 chips, but the system should have an Intel option with 1.3GHz Pentium dual-core or Core 2 Duo parts. Many of the upgrade options will remain the same as on the X100e, though pricing isn't mentioned here.

Both ThinkPads are likely to be unveiled at CES in early January. [via Liliputing]
