Reviews for the Lenovo Edge 15-80H10004US
Yoga-like entertainer. Lenovo’s Edge 15 notebook is a Best Buy exclusive with a sleek and sturdy aluminum build and some transformative properties that almost resemble the Yoga line of machines. It’s an interesting combination of features, but is it a practical addition to the lineup?

If you're looking for a real 2-in-1 that transforms from laptop to tablet, the Edge 15 stops just short of delivering the full convertible experience. Instead, you get a reasonably priced mainstream laptop with a useful stand mode, solid Core i5 power and a sharp (but not very colorful or bright) full HD display.

All in all, the Lenovo Edge 15 should suit the needs of the majority of PC buyers—from home computer shoppers to students and even small business users—very well. It looks more expensive than it actually is, while delivering adequate performance and excellent creature comforts.

Once the smoke has cleared, I can’t say that the Lenovo Edge 15 comes out on top against traditional notebooks handily. In fact, I’d say it’s pretty much a draw. The Stand Mode doesn’t add a lot, though its touch screen display is a clear winner. If you’re sure you want a touch display in your next laptop than the Lenovo Edge 15 is a great fit — provided you’re not looking for anything that’s ultra-portable. If you are looking for an ultra-portable or something that is great for entertainment away from a desk the Lenovo Edge 15 isn’t it. It fights the good fight, but loses the war.

The Lenovo Edge series stems from the makers the Lenovo Yoga 360 degrees convertible notebook. It is slightly less versatile, but makes up for it with very reasonable prices. The Edge series from Lenovo is basically a notebook with a 300 degree hinge and two modes: laptop mode for work and stand mode for watching your favorite movies.
This budget version of the Yoga is a must have for those on an austerity drive who still like this portable yet functional two in one gadget. The Edge comes with a glossy 15.6 inch IPS display at a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and pixel density of 141 ppi. The hardware includes an Intel Core i5 processor, 6 GB DDR3L RAM, a 1 TB 5400 rpm hard drive and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M Graphics card.
The processor can be upgraded by choice to an Intel Core i7 and the RAM to 8 GB. It is a sleek little device that is 23 mm thick and weighs 2.41 kg, which is considered quite acceptable for this category. The battery runtime is impressive with about 4-6 hours on average brightness, which is ideal for sharing pictures or your favorite clips and movies with friends over dinner.
