To touch on gaming performance
These numbers may lead you to believe that the ThinkPad X100e can't game at all; that's untrue. Even at 1280x800, we found the ~20FPS gameplay experience to be just good enough, and we easily hit 30-40FPS when cranking the resolution down to 800x600. If you play older games that are less demanding on the hardware, the X100e will probably handle them just fine, like WoW for example. We wouldn't recommend this to hardcore gamers obviously, but for a ~$500 machine, having the ability to game at all is a real plus.
