Series:

The Thinkpad Edge series, introduced at the 2010 CES in Las Vegas, were marketed as cheap business notebooks in the lower price segment for small companies and freelancer professional alike.

The main advantage of the Edge series is the premium appearance and feature of the ThinkPad line on top of an affordable price. Reliable performance, good workmanship, matte screen and especially low weight are business-oriented features. Office users should also consider the Edge for its comfortable keyboard, popular trackpoint and high resolution screen.

However, as is is a budget business notebook, corners must be cut for the Edge series to maintain its low price. First of all, as it lacks VGA, HDMI, and DVI, the user must carry an extra adapter while traveling. Average brightness and weak contrast makes the Edge not suitable for multimedia or working under sunlight. Even with the latest generation hardware, the Thinkpad Edge gets with almost 50° Celsius very hot under load on the bottom side. The battery life is also shorter due to its smaller battery – which is noticeable compared to other business laptop. Thus for a long travel, users should always have an adapter ready. The lack of a docking station also somewhat limits the usability of the Thinkpad edge.

Despite all the weakness, the Thinkpad Edge still remains an affordable business and office notebook in the lower price segment. Users with a bigger budget or demanding other features such as a good display or longer battery life should definitely look at other high-end business laptop.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

U5400: Entry level dual core CPU of the Arrandale series. Does not support Turbo Boost (for the CPU), Hyperthreading, Virtualization and AES. Due to the slow clock speed, the performance is only sufficient for non demanding applications.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
