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.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

 

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


69%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
