The ThinkPad has a very long history, its roots dating way back in the early 1990s. First owned by IBM, it became Lenovo's brand in 2005. Now, this large family of laptop computers and tablets just got a new member, the AMD Kabini-powered Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E145.

Targeting budget conscious consumers, the ThinkPad Edge E145 is powered by the AMD E1-2500 dual-core SoC, a chip from the Jaguar family. This APU integrates 2 cores running at 1.4 GHz and a Radeon HD 8240 GPU featuring 128 shaders clocked at up to 400 MHz. Its 11.6 inch matte display has a native resolution of 1366X768 pixels.

In addition to the above, the ThinkPad Edge E145 features 4 GB of DDR3 memory and a 500 GB HDD. Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11n WiFi connectivity are also available as standard features.

In Europe, the list price stands around $640 for now, but this notebook is not available yet. By the the end of this month, we should have information regarding its availability in the United States and its pricing on that market.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
