Lenovo will lift the wraps off its new ThinkPad X100e in time for the New Year. From what we gather, the super portable Lenovo ThinkPad X100e is looking at a launch date of January 5, 2010. As if endorsing the upcoming launch, photos of the ThinkPad X100e have started appearing on the Web.

Believed to be the first tiny ThinkPad, the pictures reveal that the device could be one worth waiting for. Though not many details have been let out, we hear that Lenovo will bring the ThinkPad X100e powered by AMD’s Athlon 1.6GHz Neo processor with ATI Radeon HD3410 graphics or Intel’s Centrino 2 ULV 1.4GHz processor paired with GMA 4500MHD graphics. We guess a confirmation on this might come soon from Lenovo.

The ThinkPad X100e might boast of a 12.1-inch WXGA 1280 x 800 panel. Storage is likely to bank on with 3GB of RAM, and it would house various HDD and SSD options and optional Gobi 3G, say the leaked info. The 6-9 cell Lithium-ion battery, the Matt Kohut design and the presence of Windows 7 would make the ThinkPad X100e more luring.  And, if you are a user who would like to carry the ultra portable device wherever you travel, Lenovo might throw in an UltraBase docking station with integrated optical drive.

However, we guess we will have to wait for Lenovo to tell the world what it is really packing for the consumer. From the pictures we see, the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e is most likely to be a cute handy ThinkPad that forms part of its IdeaPad line up.  The lovely matte-black exterior makes us wait for it.
