The test model of the Lenovo ThinkPad X121e is not a device we would really recommend, despite the low price. The dark display with a low contrast is not up to date and limits its use cases. Such a mobile notebook with such an impractical display does...

The Lenovo ThinkPad X121e 3045 is a practical, portable laptop that has a lot to offer business users – especially those that travel and work in cramped conditions like aircraft and trains. The keyboard and touchpad took some getting used to, and...

Following Lenovo’s usual design philosophy, the X121e is boxy but good. It’s heavier than most in our 2011 ultraportable laptops roundup at 1.6kg, but it's still second-smallest in volume thanks to its 11.6-inch screen and overall...

Solid performance from an 11in laptop – the X121e is a more sensible choice than a netbook if you need portability...

The Lenovo ThinkPad X121e is a great all-round package, and should be at the top of the list for anyone looking for an ultraportable and affordable laptop. It's well-made, looks good and performs capably, and backs this up with great usability. ...

There's a lot to like about the Lenovo ThinkPad X121e from its low price and sturdy build to its lengthy battery life and built-in 3G. However, using it is a lackluster experience thanks to the dim screen, iffy pointing devices and compromised...

The 11.6in X121e preserves the ThinkPad brand’s reputation for rock-solid build quality and excellent ergonomics, and throws in a decent screen, well-placed connectivity and good battery life to boot. Frankly, it’s difficult to see how...

Perfect for professionals on business trips, this laptop is also a good companion for anyone else who moves around a lot and does a lot of document work and Internet browsing. While it won't satisfy those looking for absolute performance, the X121e...

The Lenovo ThinkPad X121e subnotebook aka netbook brings a lot to the table that the X120e missed, including a brighter screen, a design overhaul, keyboard enhancements and a smaller 6-cell battery with comparable battery life. The new chassis is also...

International Review By Betabuzz on 79

Viel Vielschreiber ist das Lenovo ThinkPad X121E besser als jedes Tablet und natürlich auch besser als ein leistungsschwaches Netbook. Der niedrige Preis geht allerdings auf Kosten der sonst perfekten...

International Review By 01Net on 40

Le Thinkpad X121e de Lenovo remplit quelques clauses de son contrat. Ce mini-portable est bien conçu, robuste et bien assemblé. Il offre un bon confort de frappe, et on aime son double dispositif de pointage, mais le micro a clairement...

International Review By Tweakers on 100

Sinds een kleine week ben ik in het bezit van de Lenovo X121e, te weten het model met i3-2357 processor (i5 aanduiding in de specs is onjuist is inmiddels aangepast). Omdat er bijna geen reviews van dit model te vinden zijn heb ik besloten even kort...

Parfait pour accompagner les professionnels dans leur déplacements, ce portable est aussi un bon compagnon pour les particuliers nomades qui pratiquent beaucoup de bureautique et d'Internet sans chercher la performance absolue. Le X121e est...
