Well, isn't this a pleasant surprise! Lenovo's expanding its ThinkPad Edge
family once again, and this time it's adding the 11.6-inch Edge 11. Just like the X100e
, the "notbook" -- our word for an ultraportable that looks like a netbook but isn't as slow and weak -- is available with AMD's single and dual-core Nile platform, and also Intel Core i3
processor options. Certainly you're thinking it sounds and looks like a nice laptop, but Lenovo's not planning to release it stateside anytime soon. Apparently, the X100e will continue to be the 11-inch option in the US, while the Edge 11 will be spreading its wings overseas -- the AMD version will start at $450 and the Intel version at around $550. Of course, we could
keep telling you about what the machine is available with and without, or we could just point you in the direction of our piping hot review
. Although, before you jump over to a new tab you may also want to check out the full press release after the break or peruse some of the glossy press shots below. How's that for options?
