Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13-658D842

Lenovo ThinkPad EDGE 13: Bleeding Edge
Source: Inside HW English
It took us a while to decide whether Lenovo EDGE 13 deserves an award. Although it’s close to Best Buy, the fact remains that you can find models with stronger CPUs on the market at a similar or lower price. The keyboard really is phenomenal, but not enough to get the award for outstanding design. However, since this model has definitely hinted at a much brighter future for ThinkPad, awarded or not, this notebook deserves a wholehearted recommendation.

Comment

ATI Radeon HD 4225: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) that is able to decode HD videos (thanks to the UVD2). Technically a slower clocked HD 4250.

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

K625: Dual Core Entry level CPU for small subnotebooks on a performance level with the SU7300 Intel Core 2 Duo.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.7 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
