Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11-inch review

The laptop also features a 3G module, allowing you to wirelessly browse the web whenever in range of a mobile phone mast.Although not suited for those after a high-powered system for the family, the ThinkPad Edge 11-inch comes highly recommended as a portable partner and, ultimately, we're big fans.

Overall, once you get used to Lenovo’s placement of the Fun, Home, End, and other keys, the laptop is a pleasure to use — until the battery dies. I was very disappointed with the roughly 4 hours of run time I got from this computer, and if battery life is a consideration, you might want to look elsewhere — or at least pick up a spare battery. On the other hand, if you’re looking for one of the most powerful 11.6 inch laptops around and you happen to live in a country where the ThinkPad Edge 11 is available, it’s certainly a laptop worth putting on your short list.

Packaged with a small sized charger and some literature, I received the glossy red back version which certainly looks nice and reminded me of my old Acer Ferrari notebook. If red is not your color, then you can also get a matte or a glossy black finish. Overall, the notebook looks really smooth provided you ignore the battery sticking out of it back.

The 11in ThinkPad Edge isn't perfect. We wish the screen was brighter and many will be put off by the lack of security features. However, the Edge does have long battery life, a comfortable keyboard and is very reasonably priced at £410 ex VAT. If you want an ultra-portable laptop without spending a fortune, it's a good value choice.

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.
