Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 14

70% Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 14

The ThinkPad Edge series was introduced at the beginning of 2010, and was pitched as a sexier, more affordable midrange alternative to a venerable but staid ThinkPad line. The budget-minded Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 14 does its job as a solid small-business laptop, and Lenovo finally throws in a DVD drive, but it's too chunky compared with svelte competitors.

Like its fellow Edge notebooks, the Edge 14 is a good buy for Small Business users. In an ideal world the battery life would be better, but for small business employees and owners who want a durable machine with many of the ThinkPad features the Edge 14 offers significant value at $649. If portability and battery life is an issue then you should check out the Lenovo Edge 13 review and if you want a bigger screen then the Lenovo Edge 15 might be a better fit; even though it has similarly poor battery life.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 14 is a solid choice for people who want a consumer or small business-oriented notebook. It offers an extremely comfortable island-style keyboard that is a step above many other models. Compared to its smaller sibling, the Edge 13, the Edge 14 has nearly twice the system performance moving from the CULV-based Intel SU7300 CPU and chipset to the higher-performing Core i3 and GMA HD.

For $699, the Edge 14 is the most compelling 14-inch small business notebook on the market today. When you combine Core i3 processing power with the industry’s best keyboard, a stylish chassis, and solid battery life, you have a laptop that’s great not only for companies, but also for consumers and home users who are focused on work rather than play. If portability and battery life are more important to you than performance, you may want to consider a 13-inch system like the ThinkPad Edge 13 or HP ProBook 5310m.

It’s no secret that the ThinkPad T410 is one of our current favorite business laptops. But for those without a corporate IT budget, Lenovo had little to offer price-conscious small and medium businesses (SMBs) except the decidedly consumer-oriented IdeaPad line—until now. Good performance, pleasing ergonomics, and a low price make the ThinkPad Edge 14 a safe bet for business users on a budget.

Comment

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
