The Chinese PC manufacturer Lenovo has revealed two new ThinkPad Edge models that will soon be made available to customers for purchase. The E320 and E325 will reportedly offer their future owners an appealing design, innovative technological features and much computing power. The ultra-portable PCs are targeted towards mobile professionals but can also be utilized by home users.

Both systems will supposedly be built around the latest AMD or Intel processors. According to the manufacturer the E320 will be powered by up to a second generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core i5 CPU, whereas the E325 model should sport up to a speedy Dual-Core AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit). The ultra-portable notebooks are equipped with 13.3-inch Anti-Glare/Glossy widescreen displays that deliver an HD native resolution.

An AMD Radeon HD video controller (1GB of dedicated VRAM) or an Intel HD 3000 card with dynamically allocated shared memory will take care of graphics.

In terms of networking, the E320 and E325 will house built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Gigabit Ethernet modules. Furthermore, users can take advantage of three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and VGA interface, an SD card reader slot and an integrated web camera for video conferencing.

Reportedly, the latest 1.2-inch thin Edge laptops will ship with a pre-installed copy of Microsoft’s Windows 7 Professional operating system. The manufacturer claims that they will have a starting weight of 3.6lbs (with a three-cell battery) and will be available in Heatwave Red and Midnight Black matte finish.

According to Notebook Italia, the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E320 and E325 will be priced at 638 and 600, respectively.
