Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530, Sandy Bridge

83% Review Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 (NZQBQGE) Notebook | Notebookcheck
Consumer laptop for business. Lenovo's ThinkPad Edge E530 is trying really hard to make an attempt at being a representative of the “ThinkPad” brand for the masses. This review will evaluate whether the offering will cut it in a market looking for leaner and meaner machines.
Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 Review
Source: Notebooks.com English
The ThinkPad Edge E530 isn’t the sexiest or slimmest notebook available, but it does deliver the tools small business users and owners need to keep business flowing while out of the office. The matte display, great keyboard and good battery life make the ThinkPad Edge E530 a good companion for small businesses. The notebook is too thick and heavy for frequent travelers, but for users that need an affordable notebook that stands up to work outside the office the ThinkPad Edge E530 is an option worth checking out.

We're open-minded about our laptops here at Computer Shopper. That said, when we're offered a Lenovo ThinkPad for review, our mind can't help but shift to a specific preconception: "relatively expensive business laptop.This under-$700 laptop is a classic get-what-you-pay-for proposition. It performs well, but many business users will prefer the better-looking screens and richer-sounding speakers of higher-end ThinkPad models.

Performance is the only issue, but it’s an important one. Consumers can find much quicker laptops for a similar price.

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.
