Price Check: X100E

#1 Post by ATXChris » Fri Feb 15, 2013 10:13 pm

So the wondrous steal of a X60T I found may not be so wondrous as a noticeable spot on the display now produces grey. Since it is my only computer, I have been poking around the local Craigslist for a replacement in case I do return it. I came across an X100E for $100. Does this sound like a reasonable price? The fella seems kinda brain-dead, calling it a 10" display and not giving any real specs other than "it has an HDMI port". Does this sound, even at the lowest end, reasonably priced? I seem them for double that on eBay but that doesn't mean anything really haha.. and how would it compare (assuming it's the lowest spec'd version possible) to the X60T in my signature?

Thanks guys...

In my opinion very reasonable for a working X100e. As for the model and type from the bottom label.

The X100e will use the same memory and the one that I have has a AMD processor which I am not sure how it would compare to the Core Duo.

One thing I am fairly certain about is the X60 has a faster and probably larger SSD compared to the HDD that is very likely to be included with the X100e.

Well if I had to return the X60, I'd remove the SSD as I bought it separately.

Personally I'd take the X60 over the X100e. From all the reviews I've read on the X100e, is slightly more powerful than a netbook. The AMD CPU is terrible for battery life and runs hot. The biggest issue for me is the chiclet keyboard vs the classic Thinkpad keyboard on the X60.

well right now I get 3.5 hours of battery on the X60T and I actually like chiclets. But performance wise, which is better? Still don't know if I'm returning it yet.
