Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E525-NZ63FUK


Love it, some great new keyboard and mousepad extras since my last laptop. Love the fingerprint sign in, and the red button for scrolling/enlarging/moving arrow. Have not found anything I don't like, is just perfect for me.

Not found one yet, only been about 3wks though, and don't use it on battery, it's always plugged in, so not sure on battery life!

Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E525-NZ63FUK


Rock solid well constructed case. Good video performance . Nice keyboard .. Wi-fi is better than my other laptops.

Battery life could be better - about 4 hours. Not too keen on the lack of status lights for caps-lock, num lock etc. Quite heavy.
