It took us a while to decide whether Lenovo EDGE 13 deserves an award. Although it’s close to Best Buy, the fact remains that you can find models with stronger CPUs on the market at a similar or lower price. The keyboard really is phenomenal, but not enough to get the award for outstanding design. However, since this model has definitely hinted at a much brighter future for ThinkPad, awarded or not, this notebook deserves a wholehearted recommendation.
