An interesting listing popped up on several Euro price search engines overnight courtesy of Lenovo. The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge is getting a Jaguar overhaul.
The ThinkPad Edge E145 is based on AMD’s new cheap and cheerful Kabini APU. The E1-2500 is a dual-core clocked at 1.4GHz. It is a 15W part manufactured in 28nm. In addition to a pair of aguar CPU cores, it features HD 8240 graphics, with 128 shaders clocked at up to 400MHz.
The APU supports single channel DDR3-1333 and DDR3L-1333.
This particular ThinkPad SKU ships with 4GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive. Other highlights include Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11n wireless and a matte 11.6-inch 1366x768 display.
There is no word on battery life yet and the list price stands ranges from €460 to just north of €500 in Austria and Germany - not what we’d call cheap.
Although it's listed, it's not available yet, but retailers expect it in stock by the end of the month.
