Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E550-20DF004TGE
Source: Laptop Media
No wonder that last year’s Lenovo ThinkPad E540 was selling so well, but does its successor live up to the legacy? Well, in some terms yes, but in others – no. Lenovo kept the same minimalistic design signature with high-quality plastic for the construction. The keyboard remains almost perfect as usual and the trackpad and touchpad complete the pleasant user experience. Yes, it still lacks the quality panel, but it does offer good functionality for its price range and you have a bonus fingerprint reader, as most competitors don’t offer this option. Actually the E550 brings more to the table than we would have expected and does the job perfectly for what it’s made for.
