Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E325-12972FG
Lost values. For a mere 420 Euros Lenovo is offering the ThinkPad Edge E325; a 13.3 inch subnotebook. The display is non-reflective, the battery life lasts for up to nine hours, and AMD Fusion provides for a smooth presentation of HD movies. Yet older qualities of the ThinkPad genre, such as the known robustness, received less attention.

There’s no optical drive, which will make installing software locally rather challenging, but if you’ve moved to software deployment over a network this won’t be an issue. Our strongest criticism, then, is that the ThinkPad took nearly two minutes to start up – an eternity for the youngest students.
