ThinkPad X131e Chromebook
The Chromebook is now officially 2 years old, with the original model CR-48 officially long-in-the-tooth and left behind. After the initially testing period of the CR-48, Samsung and Acer have made their best, and different efforts at selling the platform for outrageously low prices. Since the release of Samsung and Acer’s latest Chromebooks, the Samsung model we reported on late last year is now the best selling laptop on Amazon.com, the world’s largest online retailer.
So, with such success, why would Google needs to add any credibility to their already successful niche computing platform? Business, that’s why. And Lenovo is prepared to deliver savvy business folk what their hearts truly desire; a Thinkpad. The ThinkPad X131e by Lenovo will set sail on February 26th, just in time for these savvy business folk’s Valentine office romances to to expire. Details on the unit’s hardware is scarce, but you can expect the unit to be 4 lbs, carry something sub-i3, with an average 1366×768 desplay at 11″. It looks like the Lenovo is not here to change the game with superior circuitry, but it would be safe to bet on great build quality, and the same ThinkPad design that has excited wannabe stock brokers since 1995.
