Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E550-20DGS00300

81.6% Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E550 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Two steps forward, one step back. Lenovo replaces a standard CPU with a ULV processor in yet another ThinkPad. Thus, the Edge E550 sacrifices some performance in favor of power consumption and emissions. The inexpensive office laptop nevertheless makes an overall solid impression.
