Lenovo ThinkPad Edge Twist Review

Digitaltrends
6 December 2012
  • Conclusion: We weren’t surprised to find that Lenovo’s new convertible is a good laptop. The company’s experience in this area has paid off with Microsoft’s move towards touchscreen devices. No other convertible on the market can match the value proposition of the Twist. The Twist is a great laptop, even when the convertible hinge is taken out of the equation. Battery life is robust, the keyboard is excellent, and build quality is good.
  • Pros: Good build quality, Thin and light, Excellent keyboard, Great hardware value
  • Cons: Limited connectivity, Extremely dim display backlight, Runs hot when displaying 3D graphics, Confusing bloatware

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge (13-inch)

CNET
3 September 2010
  • Summary: With a relatively affordable starting price and a new design, the ThinkPad Edge loosens up the ThinkPad look--but losing an optical drive keeps it a yard short of being a top-choice compact business laptop.
  • Pros: Excellent keyboard and touch pad; compact body; bright display.
  • Cons: The chassis could easily have held an optical drive, but doesn't; better configurations drive up the price significantly.

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15-inch Notebook Review

ThinkComputers
12 May 2010
  • Summary: Final Thoughts The ThinkPad Edge is definitely another great offering from Lenovo, especially for people looking for a great mix of business and consumer features. As far as the business aspect goes you do get the ThinkVantage software suite that has a lot of very cool business features many people will like, especially the Active Protection System, which makes sure your hard drive does not get damaged if you happen to drop your laptop.
  • Pros: – Awesome red color on the lid, – ThinkVantage tools, – Comfortable new keyboard
  • Cons: – Poor battery life, – Looks a little boxy compared to the 13inch model, – Loud optical drive

  • Conclusion: In an effort to compete in the mid-level notebook market, Lenovo created a sleek and slim ThinkPad that’s affordable yet has a solid build. The ThinkPad Edge reaches a good balance between giving users enough power to run essential business and entertainment software while using ultra-low voltage CPUs that give the notebook long battery life by 13” notebook standards, especially with the Intel configuration.
  • Pros: ThinkPad build quality at a more affordable price, sleek and slim., Pro: ThinkPad build quality at a more affordable price, sleek and slim.
  • Cons: No built-in optical drive., Con: No built-in optical drive, not for serious gaming.

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge Review

Digitaltrends
2 February 2010
  • Excerpt: After over a decade of filling the same matte black boxes with fresh hardware, Lenovo has finally bowed to the design gods and attempted to put a little bit of an edge on the stiff reputation of the working-class ThinkPad. Like the SL series before it, the Edge blends familiar ThinkPad design elements with a more 21st century chassis.
  • Pros: Large, responsive touchpad, Our favorite Chiclet-style keyboard, Strong Wi-Fi reception, Reasonably bright LED-backlit display, Light weight, Handles basic computing tasks well, Clean initial software load
  • Cons: Expensive relative to specs, Insufficient for gaming and HD video, Krylon-looking paint job on lid, No discrete graphics cards available, No optical drive, Cumbersome ThinkVantage suite

Обзор субноутбука Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13 (K685)

Notebookcheck.ru
31 July 2011
  • Conclusion: ThinkPad Edge 13 (665D817) - это недорогой (около 400 Евро) 13.3-дюймовый ноутбук с рядом отличительных особенностей, нехарактерных для данного ценового диапазона. Аппарат оснащен первоклассными устройствами ввода (тачпад, трэкпойнт, клавиатура), его корпус отличается высокой прочностью и надежностью , а массивные металлические петли отлично справляются с удержанием крышки в любых условиях. Также в плюсы можно записать жесткий диск на 500 Гб и наличие порта eSATA .

  • Conclusion: Laptopy ThinkPad Edge wyraźnie odchodzą od wizerunku kanciastego notebooka dla biznesmenów, który do tej pory była znakiem rozpoznawczym serii ThinkPad. Edge okazuje się stylistycznie bardziej przyjemny dla oka i chociaż nie jest tak widowiskowy jak np. cienki Dell Vostro V13, to w porównaniu do typowych modeli ThinkPad oferuje o wiele ciekawszą stylistykę.
  • Pros: Długi czas pracy na baterii, Poręczne rozmiary, Gniazdo HDMI
  • Cons: Braki napędu optycznego

PC Actual
30 June 2010
