Summary: This is just an excellent laptop. Nice balance between performance and power-saving. The keyboard is wonderful, the screen isn't too glossy, system feels responsive, doesn't get very hot. Some say the Edge isn't a true Thinkpad, but I've got no complaints so far. It's also a great choice for running Linux: the hardware is all well-supported (go for the Intel wireless). An ideal machine for just about any task short of intense gaming/video editing.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display
Summary: I owned a T43 prior to the Edge, and when the T43 died, I scrambled to replace it. Luckily the Edge had just arrived on the scene. Six months later I'm still in love with this lightweight, versatile and surprisingly fast notebook. The obvious +'s are its slim form factor, PHENOMENAL keyboard (how do they do it time and again?), crisp display, large touchpad, trackpad, powered USB and integrated webcam.
Summary: I researched comparable models for months with the SU7300 processor. I was not convinced that it would be fast enough, but it handles all of my needs very well. I have had Chrome, Evernote, I-Tunes, Quicken, Picasa, and Pandora Desktop open at the same time without a hitch. I've tested 1080 video, and it is as smooth as butter. I've also watched a full Amazon VOD movie w/ the HDMI cable connected to my TV without a hitch.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display
Summary: It's light, pretty and powerful enough if you are not running 3D games all day long. Most importantly, 8-hour battery life gives me chance to carry this cute laptop anywhere - park/Starbucks/library and never need to carry power cord. Will recommend to all my friends!
Summary: This laptop is great for small business use. Its built well, lightweight and quick. Its not as rugged as its more expensive siblings, but seems to be built well, not flimsy like most laptops in the 13.3in range. Its very lightweight, and I don't find myself running for an electrical outlet as often. The screen is amazing and bright. Its very quick for a 1.3 GHz processor I was impressed by how well it runs.
Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 13" 0217: The first laptop I bought, no regrets.
4 August 2011
Summary: A Lenovo Edge was my first laptop purchase as a 3rd year university student earlier this year (previous laptops were hand-me-downs). My existing IBM T60 died 6 weeks before my final exams and I needed a new laptop on a budget. I chose the Edge because I was looking for portability & battery life over performance or graphics.
Summary: I have owned this laptop for a couple of months. I bought it as a second machine that is to be portable. I currently use it for a little bit of light development work. It performs all the tasks that I require. I would recommend this laptop for a second machine, especially if you were previously considering a netbook purely for the great keyboard.
Pros: Simple, Cheap, Great Keyboard
Cons: 6 Cell Battery Sticks out a bit and is thus a bit uncomfortable
Excerpt: Quando devo comprare qualcosa di tecnologico mi piace avere a che fare con la qualità. Ho trovato questo lenovo think Pad e mi è piaciuto per le sue linee moderne,ho scelto un colore non diffuso ho rinunciato al nero per un rosso rubino che è opzionale,invece il nero lucido era il colore base. Meno male che mi è caduto una volta per terra e non è successo niente,nè si è rotto il funzionamento del portatile nè si è graffiata la superficie.
Summary: Oerhört nöjd med denna dator, batteritiden håller vad den lovar, vid lätt användning 7-8 timmar, tyngre användning (datorspel och uppspelning av hd-film) 3,5-5 timmar. Tanken med datorn var att använda den som surf-/kontors- och programmeringsdator (samt ha med den när jag reser utomlands). Blev därför glatt överraskad när jag kunde spela upp HD film och spela enklare spel så som half-life 2, CS Soruce osv.
