Thanks for your pictures/time/benchmarks
Do you play any kind of games? Like something super basic like Portal maybe?
Lenovo is not taking orders on them at the moment. When they did have them last week, there was a possible 14 day waiting period before they would even ship it. There is a big demand for them, it seems. If you can't wait, try some third party retailers online. I resorted to ebay to get mine this weekend.
The MBA is going to be lighter and thinner. Battery life may be better (not sure). Big whup... the x120e is built to last, has a matte screen, and great keyboard. Only thing anyone ever complains about is the screen quality/viewing angles/native resolution. That's it! Oh... and the "function" key on the keyboard, but don't worry. You can change function and Ctrl in the bios, and just pop them off the keyboard and switch them if it bothers you... I'll be doing that, BTW.
Yes, it can game, too.
TF2, Portal 1 & 2 (I think), and probably any other source game. I've even seen RE5 and MW2 running on it. Do a YT search to see more.
