Review Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E130 NZUAXMB Notebook
12 May 2013
Summary: Yet another bullseye. The compact, portable ThinkPad Edge E130 sports a Core i3 processor and a matte 11.6-inch screen, that is combined with a high-capacity battery. All the ingredients needed for a mobile work laptop are available. Our test reveals whether the device is thoroughly convincing.
Pros: Quiet operation, Good application performance., Swift hard drive, Good battery life, Decent keyboard, Empty mSATA slot, The good battery runtimes, decent keyboard and swift hard drive.
Cons: Inferior screen, 12 month warranty only, A better screen.
Summary: Bullseye. Lenovo makes a good throw with its Edge 130: stable, very good inputs, long battery runtime, upgradeable and good performance. The bundle is available for 375 Euros (~$488) without Windows. Will we discover any disadvantages whatsoever?
Pros: Very rigid lid, Matte, non-slip surfaces, Dual-Pointing like in the big ThinkPads, Keyboard's feedback, Long battery life, USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 4.0, Easy to upgrade, Low system noise / waste heat, Admin and security software, Fast hard disk, Keys and Dual Pointing are easy to use right away. Such a good keyboard is not found anywhere in this price range - not even in bigger laptops. Long key drop, clear pressure point, conic recess - typing can't be more comfortable.
Cons: TFT could be brighter for daylight use, Weak contrasts, Webcam cannot cope with a lot of light, A brighter screen so that we can browse on the Internet again next summer. More performance with a SSD? It would almost be presumptuous to ask for this in view of the price.
