Netbook or Ultraportable?

Here is a quick peek at my new Lenovo Thinkpad x120e. It has an 11.6″ screen, full sized keyboard dual core AMD e350 1.6 GHZ APU with a Radeon HD 6310 on the chip. The thing is a beautifully simple matte black all around which helps me to avoid annoying finger prints.

Some other features are that it has a full sized keyboard at it’s ultra small size and boats 1366 x 768 resolution. It’s performance completely blows Netbooks out of the water and is comparable to other larger laptops. For the size/performance and simple beauty of the machine I feel like I got a good deal.

On the software side I have it running Ubuntu 11.04 for when I am working on personal stuff but I also can boot into Windows 7 where I have a meager install just for work to keep that end more secure.
