Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad E555
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).
