Summary: I recently bought the Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E420 through Amazon. The seller (Circuitcity) was very responsive and delivered the item 2 days prior to the estimated delivery date based on my request :-) I've been using the laptop for the past few days and here's my objective assessment of its features.
Summary: Compared to my 3 year old Acer 5515 this is a rocketship. As configured the WEI is 5.9, the HDD and memory are the bottlenecks. Keyboard is amazing, the touchpad is also great. The trackpoint, thaat is new to me and I am still working on it.
Summary: Bought one last year for working at home, watching movies on the internet, and traveling overseas (I do heavy work even when traveling so a tablet is not an option). So far I did not have any regret. The laptop is well designed and build. I brought it twice overseas without any issue.
Summary: Was able to find this particular configuration at a brick and mortar store with a much cheaper price than offered here. The laptop has a clean look. It's not the keyboard I know and love from my work T400, but the nubbin is right where it should be and I love it!
Summary: Für meine Frau ein sehr handliches, extrem schnelles Notebook mit prima Handling und guter Akkulaufzeit. Hervorragendes Display. Laufwerk und eingebaute Kamera super...alles harmoniert gut zusammen. Das ThinkPad ist eine Bereicherung!
