Review Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E320 (i3-2310M) Subnotebook

 

A step backwards. The 13.3 inch E320 subnotebook presents itself to buyers with the strength of a standard CPU, a matte display, good input devices, and seven hours of mobile use. The usual ThinkPad robustness can however no longer be relied upon.

Matte and grippy surfaces, Display non-reflective, HDMI, eSATA, Good application performance, Fast hard drive, Trackpoint & touchpad, Good keyboard, Very good battery life, Low power consumption, Useful System-Tools, eSATA port in a 13.3 inch...

Bendable chassis, soft hinges, No docking station port, Weak contrast, Low brightness, The firm case of an Edge 13. A bright display for nice summer days on the balcony

Lenovo E320 review

 

Lenovo has released a small laptop that brings in more performance than "netbooks" could provide.

A worthy small laptop for people that need some computing power while on the go, and don�t really want to carry a �desktop replacement� or a too small �netbook�.
