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.

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, th...

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 review

 

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 Thinkpad Edge 11 Review

 

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 reviewed – impressive mini laptop

 

I'm a big fan of Lenovo's mini laptops, especially of those 11.6 inchers they have on the market. And now there's one more, the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 . Unlike the Lenovo x100e, which is curr...

For the moment though, my money are still on the dual-core AMD equipped ThinkPad x100e. But what do you think, what would you pick between that one and this Intel powered Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11? More on Engadget

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 review

 

While netbooks are a cheap way to get a laptop you can carry everywhere with you, they suffer from poor performance and screen sizes. If you need a faster computer on a tight budget the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 could be the model that you're looking for.

The screen's a little dull, but long battery life, decent performance and a great price make this laptop a fantastic choice.

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,...
