Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E540 20C60041

78% Review Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E540 20C60041 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Fade to gray. Lenovo's series E540 is designed for business users who are looking for an inexpensive and individually configurable 15.6-inch notebook. While certain mobility features take a back seat, the quality of the tried-and-true ThinkPad input devices is still a priority for Lenovo. The E540 is a pretty impressive notebook overall and its one obvious shortcoming seems almost unavoidable in this price class.

L’exemplaire que nous avons reçu pour cet essai a rencontré plusieurs problèmes avec notre le programme de test PCMark 8 Home. Malgré plusieurs réinstallations du système et l’utilisation de points de restauration, nous n’avons pu le faire fonctionner sans plantage. Les autres tests comme 3DMark Cloud Gate ont bien fonctionné pour atteindre un score de 5 597 points, l’un des plus élevés pour cette gamme de prix. L’autonomie de la batterie se veut très correcte pour un PC de cette puissance, avec 4 heures et 17 minutes.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.46 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.
