The ThinkPad X131e Chromebook simplifies software and security management for school administrators and provides students and teachers with quick access to thousands of apps, education resources and storage." Lenovo is the third OEM to jump into ChromeOS. Chromebooks have been doing well on Amazon, apparently, too. Android tablets, iPads, the Mac, and now Chromebooks - it must be rainy in Redmond.

As a fan of the TrackPoint (and third button), I will need to take a look at this. I'm not part of the intended audience, but, if the price it reasonable, I would consider getting one.

Yup, cost is important here. With samsung's chromebook at 250USD and the acer c7 with celery 847 at 200USD the price could make some difference here. I doubt they're chasing business users with this chromeos x131e.

Ahh, I see 429USD for a unit, but with no indication of which CPU, how much RAM, what kind of storage to be included.
