The matte screen is great, and we have to say that readability and screen clarity for text and icons seems to improve as a result. Viewing angles aren't able to match how far the screen can tilt, however, so sharing views on a document or video might be a challenge. Stereo speakers embedded on the underside of the front of this ThinkPad offer better-than-average volume but a strangely hollow audio quality.
The Webcam had good resolution and light sensitivity in our casual use, matching what we've seen in many ThinkPad products. Ports are pared down on the xe; not a tremendous surprise considering it's basically a Netbook at heart. Our version came with bit Windows 7 Professional. RAM is expandable to 4GB. Also, it's worth noting that Lenovo's ThinkVantage suite of professional security features, common to ThinkPad users, are included on the xe.
In our benchmark tests, the Neo offered notable improvement over the Intel Atom in single-task tests on Photoshop and iTunes, but being a single-core processor, it suffers the same multitasking hindrances as an Atom. AMD Neo dual-core processors such as we've seen in the Acer Ferrari One offer more processing punch, and yet the upscale Ferrari One costs nearly the same as our configured ThinkPad xe.
Also, the xe emits considerable heat from its side vents and bottom, even under normal usage. Theoretically, the ATI graphics should enhance video and light games, but our attempts to watch Hulu full-screen were just as stuttered as on any other Netbook. For basic office use and even some light media functions, the ThinkPad xe should be more than adequate: just don't expect a superportable powerhouse.
We wish a dual-core processor option had been available, but we just may have to wait for the next generation. It's a shame, especially we're already having a hard time justifying the elevated price of the ThinkPad xe to potential Netbook customers. The ThinkPad xe's six-cell battery ran for 3 hours and 42 minutes using our video playback battery drain test. That's a lot less than any current Atom Netbook, and this is with a heavy 6-cell battery, too.
That's the big drawback to this Neo processor: too little juice for too little performance, and from what we experienced, a lot of venting heat. That's not to say, with some management, this battery won't make it through a day--but under four hours for a Netbook-level product is a disappointment. After all, isn't improved battery performance supposed to be the benefit we receive from accepting low-voltage processors that underperform?
Lenovo includes a standard one-year warranty with the ThinkPad xe. Lenovo's Web site is relatively easy to navigate for downloadable drivers and support, especially since there's only one page for the xe. Lenovo also offers a toll-free support number, available Lenovo Thinkpad Xe Windows 7 Professional; 1. HP Mini Windows 7 Starter; 1. Acer Aspire One h Windows 7 Starter; 1. Scott Stein.

The Good Phenomenal keyboard; sturdy build; matte screen. Underpowered for the price; battery life isn't as good as many Netbooks. The ThinkPad xe is essentially the ThinkPad Netbook users have been dreaming of, with one of the best keyboards we've ever tested. Unfortunately, its performance, though better than that of Atom Netbooks, comes at the cost of longer battery life. Annual power consumption cost.
