Matte lightweight. With the ThinkPad Edge S430 Lenovo brings another offspring of the Edge family on the market. The specially marketed as a cheap business notebook should win both the personal user and the SMEs with a high-resolution matte display - does the undertaking succeed?

I used a range of items on this and viewed a movie or three during my test and everything worked as you would like. There are a number of trials including the normal Norton offerings as well as some games so is this a work tool or a leisure one from the content I am not sure I suppose they would like it to be all things to all.

If you are in the market for a lightweight, well built machine for general office and browsing duties then the ThinkPad Edge S430 is an excellent choice. Lenovo have very high engineering standards and at a starting price of £635 in the United Kingdom it is highly recommended.

Lenovo reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M:

Based on either the older 40nm GF108 chip or the newer 28nm GF117 Fermi die shrink. In either case, the 620M is most similar to a GT 525M and comes without dedicated display ports. Consequently, the GPU can only be used in conjunction with Optimus. 

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3210M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.5 - 3.1 GHz

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3520M: Fastest Ivy-Bridge-based Dual-Core, 2,9 - 3,6 GHz core clock


» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.85 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.9 kg:


80.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
