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.

Comment

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. 

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
