This's the Intel i3-2367M version with 7x series chipset and USB 3.0 support. Strangely, Lenovo chose to stick with a Sandy Bridge chip. A Russian review site already reviewed an x131e with i5 Ivy Bridge some time back.
Intel's site says the processor can address up to 16GB DDR3-1333 RAM. I took a chance and purchased a 8GB SODIMM. Kingston KVR16S11/8, 8GB PC3-12800 CL11. The little tubby booted right up and reported 12GB (4 + total.
Have already torn off the stickers. Think there was too much friction involved. There's a small bright spot on the palmrest.
BTW, I'm using a cheap US$9 ebay sleeve. The width is perfect for the X131e. Should fit the Edge E130/135 as well.

Took out the bundled harddrive and backed up all 3 partitions using Acronis True Image Home 2011.
Cloned the MBR and Windows7_OS partition onto a Samsung 830 128gb. Works great.
Downgrade. If it shipped with 7, it'll have a 7 sticker.Cola wrote:Hmm, is the X131e the newest model? Seems weird to me that it has got a windows 8 logo on the windows button, but a Windows 7 sticker on the machine itself.
