Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad E555

77% Lenovo ThinkPad E555 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Facelift. Lenovo once again offers a device for private and business users with the latest model of the inexpensive ThinkPad E-series. There are some visual changes compared to the predecessors – but you still get a matte panel and a good keyboard.

Lenovo did a great job with the ThinkPad E555. It produces some decent numbers performance-wise, is very well built and competitively priced. There are some minor issues with battery life and the touchpad but neither of these are deal breakers. Competition is heating up in this segment but Lenovo has managed to produce a laptop with a highly impressive value-for-money rating that has very few rivals between £200 and £300 (around $320 to $480, or AU$405 to AU$610).

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


78.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
