Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15-NVN2PUK

50% Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 review
Source: Techradar English
In short, the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge makes too many sacrifices for no real benefit. It's thoroughly trounced by the Acer and HP in every respect, from raw power for getting more done to size, weight and build quality. With so many great machines on offer in the sub-£450 space, it's impossible to recommend the ThinkPad Edge for any user.

Series:

For those seeking the most value out of a laptop, the ThinkPad Edge 15 by Lenovo is definitely worth checking out. It is affordable and user friendly, suitable as a small business laptop. Right out the box, the ThinkPad Edge 15 gives of the impression of a rather conservative build. It is very thick and boxy. However, its black matte surface is pretty fingerprint resistant. With 5.5 pounds (2.49 kg), the Edge 15 is not the heaviest laptop in the market, but it is probably more suitable for use at the office desk than on the go.

As the name suggest, the Edge 15 comes with a 15.6 inch screen, which is great for those who like to work with multiple applications at the same time. The large size of the laptop also means sufficient space for a full length keyboard. The ThinkPad Edge 15 comes with one of Intel's latest i3 processors, a measly 2 GB RAM and an integrated graphics card. As a result it is only apt for casual browsing and word processing, and slows down on intensive operations such as video encoding or gaming. The battery life of just above 4 hours also is mediocre. Overall it is a good laptop in terms of user interface, but the hardware conforms to the price.

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.

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