Review Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E145 Notebook

 

Successful Kabini update. Lenovo upgrades their little ThinkPad Edge (11.6-inches) with a Kabini APU and a considerably brighter display. Otherwise, the newbie and the predecessor model are exactly alike. Will users benefit from the upgrades? Read our...

Very good battery life; Very easy access for maintenance; Matte, bright display; Very good keyboard; Case remains quite cool; Stable lid; Matte, easy-to-grip surfaces; Dual-pointing

Sluggish hard drive; Display has a blue cast; Only 12-month warranty

The Kabini APU is impressive. It offers more performance overall than the E2-1800 at work in the E145's predecessor model, the ThinkPad Edge E135. One ought not to forget that the CPU in the E2-1800 APU works 400 MHz faster.
