£249 Lenovo X121e ThinkPad laptop

The Lenovo ThinkPad X121e laptop costs only £249 at Lenovo’s UK outlet, a great price given that the price includes free shipping and the device fetches a whopping £390 at Kikatek.

This ultra-portable laptop is located midway between a netbook and an Ultraportable. It runs on an AMD Fusion E-450 APU, one clocked at 1.65GHz with two cores and 1MB L2 cache.

There’s also an AMD Radeon HD 6320M GPU, far faster than other integrated non-AMD video solutions,4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard disk drive spinning at 7200RPM, a trackpoint and a touchpad (a combination that Lenovo calls UltraNav), Windows 7 Home Premium, one year warranty, Bluetooth, a 6-cell Li-Ion battery with an 8-hours run time, Wi-Fi, a webcam and an 11.6in 1,366 x 768 pixel LED display.

The X121e doesn’t really come with any competitors at this price point given that it packs the hardware usually found in a normal size laptop into a pint-sized form factor and even shaves off the price (albeit slightly).

Competitors to the ThinkPad X121e include the Packard Bell Dot netbook, Asus X101CH netbook and the Asus X401A.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
