At least the notebooks look decent aesthetically speaking. I have seen people with lenovo notebooks in my university and they look like weird block things.

I don't care how my "block thing" looks. Each ThinkPad I used lasted more then 5 years each. This time I'm a bit worried. They are changing the keyboard and the ThinkPads have one of the best keyboard around. Lets hope that new keyboard is good also. I will try it at CES.

I have to agree the old think pads do look like bricks. I use my think pad as a high-tech door stop. At 9 years old it still works though!

I hope AMD release these Athlon Neo X2(22 watts) to retail/end use market. Go AMD/ATI and I hope Intel lose another 20-40 share market. For what they have done to AMD/ATI and consumer.

Ohhh... Looks good, but the performance?, maybe is a good option for people like me that don't need the power of Intel on his laptop.

Intel doesn't always have best performance. (atom anyone?)

Hey, Jane, might want to check your first spelling of Athlon.

Great article, shame there's not more info available. I might actually pick up one of those X100e models, will wait till they've been used by others first, though.

Nice! I've been eying the V13 from Dell, but this seems just as nice (and includes HDMI- something the Dell lacked). Not sure about the performance or size though, are these going to be pretty slim?

The prices are pretty good, and I like that there is a good upgrade path to the Intel CULV chips.

What are you people talking about? Lenovo usually always ranks at the bottom of reliability tests. I would buy most any brand of computer before Lenovo. The only people that I really see that purchase Lenovo do it because they feel they are supporting China by buying one.

A 9 year-old Thinkpad would have been sold before the Lenovo merger. The IBM Thinkpads were indeed built to last, even if they were a bit clunky. I had a 770ED in college (purchased in Summer 1998, first laptop with a DVD drive) and it was incredibly durable. Unfortunately, my needs eclipsed the capabilities of a Pentium II in 2002, but my dad used my old Thinkpad after me for several years after that.

FWIW, right now I think that the ASUS makes the most durable laptops.
