Lenovo’s ThinkPad X130e has been in the market for 3-4 months now and was launched keeping the needs of students (both school and college) in mind. Here are four reasons why it’s a great buy for students:
Reason # 1 – Tough Design

has been designed such that the damage caused to corners if dropped at an angle is reduced by 33%. A 1. 2mm thick plastic bezel acts as a damage protector for the LED panel. The recessed ports have also been fortified to withstand accidents. The design takes care of the skirmishes, hits and impacts that are generally associated with
a highly energetic but not too-careful student population.

Reason # 3 – Enhanced Learning Features
Lenovo ThinkPad X 130e has a hard disk space of 500GB and has to have more provision to the storage, taking care of a student’s necessity to store a lot of information on a variety of subjects. It is light at 1.78kgs making it easy to carry the laptop around. Facilities like Bluetooth, WWAN, WLAN and Ethernet take care of connectivity within and beyond school/college. Lenovo ThinkPad X 130e also has a low light sensitive web camera coupled with HDMI ports and VGA enabling remote learning.
