An Ultrabook? A netbook? Something in-between. Maybe this one's just a standard notebook, and that's perfectly okay. Lenovo's ThinkPad X130e is now shipping to consumers, a few weeks after being adopted by select schools. The machine packs an 11.6" display, 4GB of memory, and your choice of an AMD Fusion API or Intel's Core i CPU. It's also priced very attractively, with a starting point at $429. It's rigid and rugged, like you'd expect a ThinkPad to be, including a rubber bumper around the top corner, reinforced corners, bezels and hinges, and an Active Protection System that protects data in case of drops. The battery also lasts for up to 8 hours, and there's a 500GB HDD option. Not bad at all for $429, huh?

Seems decent, though I'm not a fan of the bloatware that Lenovo puts on their laptops. The power manager software which modifies the taskbar and notification area really seems to slow them down.

Cheaper than an iPad and infinitely more powerful.

Funny how Lenovo still clings to the "nipple" :)

It's helpful, though.
