No Lenovo ThinkPad slate tablets after negative market research

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e gets reviewed: decent on outside, sluggish on inside

Lenovo prompted a few raised eyebrows when they introduced what's basically a CULV ultraportable into their ThinkPad range with the new X100e, leading to all manner of questions as to whether an AMD Athlon Neo processor could satisfy the business segment.  Over at Netbooked they've been reviewing the single-core 1.6GHz ThinkPad X100e, and while the physical design shouldn't cause too many sleepless nights for long-time Lenovo lovers, performance leaves plenty to be desired.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad T410s, T510 and W510 notebooks may not have had the eye-catching appeal of the company’s Skylight smartbook or IdeaPad U1 Hybrid at CES 2010 last week, but we’d wager sales for them would be far higher than the more unusual models.  Unfortunately Lenovo have seemingly yanked the T410s, T510 and W510 from their US site, where they’d previously been on sale since CES 2010.
