Lenovo ThinkPad E520 Business Laptop Review
26 November 2011
Conclusion: If you’re on a budget, as many small business owners are, then the Edge E520 with its quality build and latest Intel processor technology is a great buy in the mid $500 range. The E520 is a practical laptop for those on a budget but who still want something that’s going to last and won’t be outdated technology wise in two years.
Excerpt: The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 is a 15” screen business laptop that offers the latest range of Intel Core i3 to Core i7 processors and starts at $549 on Lenovo.com. The E520 is targeted at budget buyers such as small businesses or students, the ThinkPad T520 we recently reviewed is much like the E520 but […]
Summary: The Golden Balance? The Chinese notebook manufacturer, Lenovo, aims its new Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 at "Small-and-Medium-sized-Businesses" (SMB) as well as areas like "Small Office and Home Office" (SOHO). The new model entices buyers with its well-known exterior, the latest hardware, a matt 15.6 inch screen, and a price tag of 650 Euros. An alternative to cheap mainstream plastic laptops?
Pros: Acceptable connectivity, Well-sized chiclet keyboard, Separate numeric pad, Matt 15.6 inch screen, Amazing Office performance, Quiet when idle, Good battery life and low power consumption, The well-sized keyboard with numeric pad and the offered connectivity, which is good, even despite the missing USB 3.0 port.
Cons: No USB 3.0 or Docking-Port, Battery sits loosly, Standard warranty lasts 12 months, Average display values, DVD drive is loud when in use, High temperature emissions under load, Average stereo speakers, A longer guarantee period, more accessories in the delivery packet, a quieter DVD drive and better emissions.
Excerpt: Business laptops don't usually fall into the budget end of the price spectrum, but the Lenovo ThinkPad E520 costs just over £500 and has a fairly decent set of components, including an Intel Core i3 processor, a 500GB hard disk and Windows 7 Professional. It's also the only laptop this month that has an ExpressCard slot, which is ideal for adding extra ports, storage or a card reader. Plus, its battery lasted almost eight hours.
Excerpt: Dedicated graphics cards are the exception, rather than the rule, for most business laptops. Tom Morgan goes hands on with Lenovo's latest ThinkPad Edge, to see if its AMD Radeon GPU is a perfect accompaniment, or more of a third wheel.
Excerpt: Lenovo’s ThinkPad Edge range of mid-range laptops might mainly target business customers, but that’s no reason to write them off – the good-value E520 combines the power of Intel’s Core i5 processor and a discrete 3D graphics chipset. Like other ThinkPads, the Edge E520 has very reserved looks.

Excerpt: DinSide Thinkpad, en gang navnet på kostbare, robuste PC-er fra IBM, lever videre i beste velgående under Lenovos ledelse - 19 år etter at det første medlemmet i familien så dagens lys. Nå omfatter den imidlertid maskiner i en rekke forskjellige segmenter, men de fleste er fortsatt myntet mer på produktivitet enn på underholdning. Derfor er Thinkpad spesielt populære i skole- og bedriftssammenheng.
Pros: God kvalitetsfølelse, bra utstyrsnivå, mye minne, fingeravtrykk vises ikke, skjerm uten refleksjoner, godt tastatur, lav støy
Cons: Moderat prosessor- og grafikkytelse, spinkel lyd av de innebygde høyttalerne, det røde lokket passer ikke alle.
