First, get your install media here:
http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unoff ... -firmware/
This version includes non-free repositories, which makes things a lot easier for you.
With Stretch, everything works out of the box, except video, which installs a generic driver set at a poor default resolution. The old fglrx driver is nowhere to be found either.
To fix video, open synaptic (or use apt), and install the amd-firmware-graphics package. I know, it should have been obvious, but it wasn't. A few other dependencies will be marked for installation as well.
One more thing: when choosing a desktop, I went with LXDE (Desktop environment was selected, I selected LXDE, and left all of the others unchecked). It's so light that the X120e feels like it did when it was new. It's snappy. The browser is even tolerable, which is saying something for this laptop.
