Cadder, I have no idea what you're smokin' but AMD CPU's are perfectly fine for windows.....Not sure what CPU's are going in, but in terms of performance they are likely to be as good as the average Atom, with a GPU that is probably significantly better than the usual GMA950....just not sure on the battery life
I'm using an x200 right now and this laptop kicks butt. Personally I don't know why are they making an x100e as a corporate line laptop. It doesn't seem to have a docking station. The keyboard is square instead of the more comfortable keyboards in the other thinkpads. Yes a touchpad is nice, but I think they should design this laptop for a corporate world.
If you didn't notice, half the video was talking about "professional grade" technology. It isn't meant to appeal to half of everyone here, hence the lack of media centric features and colorful design.
As far as ThinkPads go, this is a pretty good product that earns the ThinkPad name. Ultranav (dual pointers), with pro-level Wan and the famous ThinkPad keyboard come together nicely in the X100e. The design is nice too, I prefer a no frills enclosure; does it HAVE to have flashing lights everywhere and "psychedelic" colors or should it just.. work? The case (to some) may be uninspired, but the Lenovo engineers take pride in their case designs- case in point, dual pointing controls and only 2 leds on the case make for a striking minimalist design.
So before you bash the X100e, remember that it isn't meant for everyone, especially the typical consumer.
