Key downgrade. Lenovo tinkers around on its budget ThinkPad and g

Small, light, resistant; Matt display; Keyboard, trackpoint; Acceptable performance; Quiet during load; HDMI out

No docking port; Short battery life; Low TFT brightness; Poor contrasts; Permanently running fan

The new standard battery's runtime is an impertinence. This artificially ensures a battery life disadvantage compared to the Intel version.

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 review

 

Sure, the word is that ultraportables – or 11- to 13-inch laptops – aren't selling particularly well, but that hasn't stopped Lenovo. In fact, the company's had a particular obsession with 11.6-inch lappies over the last six months or so, but sadly...

Extremely comfortable keyboard ; Speedy Core i3 ULV processor ; Over five hours of battery life

Not available in the US ; Bulging battery ; Very glossy lid

Like a ThinkPad, the Edge 11 has Lenovo's TrackPoint system with both a touchpad and a pointing stick in the middle of the keyboard. Like the ThinkPad X100e and X120e, the laptop features a full-sized chiclet keyboard which looks an awful lot like...

Lenovo is expanding the Edge lineup by going small and introducing a new Edge with a netbook sized chassis and 11.6" display. Can this laptop prove its worth as an ultraportable, or does it give up its edge against the competition?

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 review

 

Despite its diminutive proportions and light 1.5kg body, the ThinkPad Edge 11 boasts almost astonishing build quality. Updated, 11 May 2011

The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 is an excellent piece of kit, and Lenovo’s attention to detail and outstanding level of build quality inspire absolute confidence in its reliability. However, if you want it for more than rather light computing duties,...
