The ThinkPad X131e 3372-2VU 11.6" Notebook Computer from Lenovo takes the no-nonsense, business-oriented side of Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks and adds a touch of personality for customer-facing roles in small- to medium-sized businesses. The result is a slimmed down 11.6" notebook computer that weighs just under 4 pounds. This Lenovo notebook is also wrapped in a refined, soft matte black finish.
The 11.6" HD widescreen display is backlit with LED lamps, which brighten faster, use less power and provide better picture quality than their CCFL counterparts. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is also the standard for HDTVs. The 1366 x 768 native resolution is supported by integrated AMD Radeon HD 7340 graphics. The anti-glare coating allows you to use this Lenovo notebook in bright rooms or outdoors in the sunlight.
The system is powered a dual-core 1.7GHz AMD E2-1800 accelerated processor. It also has 4GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, a 320GB 7200rpm hard drive, a 4-in-1 media card reader, 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers.
Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) is the installed operating system, but there is a free Windows 8 upgrade DVD that is included. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles that update in real-time, which provide faster access to news, weather forecasts, sports scores, social network updates and more. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience.
