x120e was for USA only i think, x121e is for Asia and Europe i believe :)

Would love to get myself one, but need to shift my tablet first in order to get it, but a new phone is needed first :D

Besides, i think ill sit out and wait till next year as this tablet does everything i need fine. They will have quad-core netbooks probably next year with the new nvidia chipsets out and the Fusion/Zacate platforms already in the market, i'd be surprised if quad-cores werent integrated into sub 13" market.

Later this month apparently, from the Lenovo website.

Oooo, thats nice :D

Any idea of the pricing for it? I'd suspect it to be around £350 or something, as the x120e was about that when converted (i think, don't hold me to it)

..........................

August 12 will be available from major retailers in the country

Taken from their website, translated from Japanese.

Looks promising from the dates :) Cannot see a price yet though :(

Update: Lenovo has been back in touch with us and confirmed that the ThinkPad x121e will go on sale for £262 excluding VAT and will go on sale here in this month.

Very tempted by this, as it's almost exactly what I've been looking for. Is there likely to be a similar model with a larger screen size?

/edit, although strangely enough just found this:

This X121e is marketed beginning in Japan with prices ranging from ¥ 69,300 (~ USD $ 855) to 100,000 yen (~ $ 1,233 USD).

Quite a huge price difference there!!!

Mhmmm, for some reason i cannot grasp how far apart the figures are, i guess if it was £267, it would be the cheapest Zacate/Fusion Notebook available on the market....new.

And if it would say say £600, thats quite steep, considering the x120e isn't that high in price...is it :eek:?

Anyways, seems too good to be true, obviously on their part not yours.

Thanks for the info' though :)

£262 excluding VAT

Which is £315

€379 is about £330.

So I'd expect we're talking £300-350.

I've no idea why the other link I found suggests that the pricing in Japan will be so much higher. It could just be wrong, or it could be that Japan just pay much more for the same stuff, but I'd think that's unlikely.

Oops, misread it for £267 instead of £262.

Also didn't read the Excluding part so, it does seem around the standard price for a Zacate/Fusion netbook, as already said, only time can tell.

Good news, was angling for a trip to NY with work ha :) Wanted an x120e since I heard about them. Hopefully the successor to Zacate doesn't pop up and make my decision harder again

All I want from a netbook is reasonable speed, reasonable video and perhaps most importantly, no ******* shiny plastic

Now listed on the Lenovo UK website to buy, but only the Intel i3.
I after the AMD version hope that's listed soon, money's burning a hole.

JUst pricing up the i3 version on Lenovo website and with larger 6 cell battery it comes in at £379!! Not a bad price, would the Intel HD3000 graphics be better than the ATI graphics on the AMD version though?

The 6310 with the E350 is very underpowered graphics and only a nudge above the old GMA HD solution, certainly falling a long way behind the Ati 4330 which is a couple of years old in itself. http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-6310.40952.0.html

It is fine for productivity but not for gaming. The HD 3000 is much better although still not brilliant with an i3, it is more capable and further up the performance charts so it will at least play 2-3 year old games at an ok res on low detail.
