Improvement

how did I miss this post? i have this thread subscribed.....

so, I updated my lab mule desktop to Catalyst 12.6 and finally today got around to updating the humble Thinkpad x120e.
I have not touched the SATA driver.

take a look .. I brought up the driver pane and positioned beside the new WEI numbers so you could see the actual driver detail

D/L AS SSD Benchmark
You don't need to run the benchmark, just post or give a snip of the info in the upper left corner.
The information circled in red.

As Hopalong X mentioned, all the info on the AS SSD snips looks ok.

Try this first.

This will delete old scores and info. Sometimes WEI gets a "glitch". It is sort of like clearing the temp files out of your browser.
Sometimes WEI needs the old files cleaned out with hardware changes.

Then rerun the WEI.
Haven't seen any 11.6" laptops with two drive bays so I will assume that only the SSD is installed.

Check the Lenovo site for any updated drivers.
ThinkPad X120e Support
Is the SSD from Lenovo or did you install it?
They have a firmware update for the SSD on the site linked above.
If the SSD was installed by you then you'll need to get the firmware from Crucial.

On the link above there is a AMD AHCI Controller Device Driver 1.2.1.197 03 Sep 2010, listed.
That is an old driver, I would recommend to get the latest driver from AMD.
You must take precautions if you want to install the latest AHCI driver from AMD.
I would recommend a full image backup, in case of boot failure.
If you don't have an Image Backup program use Macrium Reflect free version.
To be safe run the latest Lenovo driver.

Don't see any new drivers for your laptop listed here: Lenovo Newly Released Drivers

The latest AMD Chipset drivers including the AMD AHCI Driver:
AMD Chipset Drivers
It does list the AMD E-Series APU for the RAID drivers, this would indicate the AHCI drivers should work also.

in other news....

So here is a burning question for you gurus to ponder.
For fun, because it is dirt cheap, I bought off newegg a little dell 11z ULV core i3 11.5 incher for a whopping $289. I don't expect much of it but I won't lose anything at that price when I pass it on after I hotrod it. But pondering the numbers I'm likely to see on that and realizing I'll stick with my Thinkpad x120e for the foreseeable future, here's the question:
Which i3 must one buy [in a laptop/notebook], with shared-memory standard INtel HD graphics, to achieve a matching or beating WEI graphics score[s] vs. the little E-350 I'm running? I believe the answer is: "at least a model 2130".
A notebook with that one or higher-powered is going to be $500-$900 ... right?

and I don't know that that will change with the intros of Ivy Bridge models.

Grunt on processing power is important to some users - the obvious usual suspects. For the rank/file it ain't. I contend that graphics is. I see too many people go buy a new notebook, and a week later are complaining about stuttering Netflix or staccato 1080P Youtube

WEI score for the SSD looks good, and the driver.

Not sure about the i3 graphics for a laptop/notebooks, search some of the notebook review sites.
The Ivy Bridge graphics are much better than previous ones.

Yes its a bit small but if you click on the bar you can read it. I can anyway. The base score is readable. Just upgraded to a Crucial 256 ssd.

I think they mean the picture does not display. In fact, the picture, even on your profile is an invalid link.
