Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E425

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E425 Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English
The AMD Fusion powered ThinkPad E425 is priced right at under $500 for a decent configuration. The build quality is very good for such a priced laptop and it is overall a very practical purchase. The performance is good enough for most tasks a student would need it for. If you’re an engineering student in need of a workstation for 3D design then the graphics card on board the E425 will not be powerful enough. As far as the decision between the Intel powered ThinkPad E420 and AMD powered E425, it’s a tough call, but overall the Intel Core i3 gives slightly better performance over the comparable AMD Fusion processors, but you do get a slightly better graphics boost thanks to the integrated AMD 6470m. The E425 with the AMD Fusion APU also has better battery life compared to the E420. If you can afford to configure the ThinkPad Edge E420 with a Core i5-2410m processor you’re going to get much better performance than the E425 AMD A4-3300M Fusion equipped, so if you don’t mind paying for an upgrade to the Core i5 that’s my overall recommendation. If you cannot afford the upgrade and want to stay under $500, the Edge E425 could be a better bet, especially if battery life and graphics performance are important to you.

AMD Radeon HD 6470M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename featuring the UVD3 video processor.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
