Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E220s

 

For some people, a laptop needs to be a full-fledged computer that offers some portability as a secondary factor. For others, portability takes center stage at the expense of performance. Ideally, we'd like to have both, but a certain amount of...

The ThinkPad Edge E220s has an excellent balance of size and performance, with a great keyboard and touch pad and all the necessary ports in easy-access positions.

Despite its low-voltage processor, the E220s has worse battery life than other ultraportables, such as the Samsung Series 9.

Balancing between ultraportable and full-size laptop, the 12-inch ThinkPad Edge E220s offers an exceedingly compact computing experience matched by an upscale design, marred only by subpar battery life.

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge e220s review, with video, pros and cons

 

I got to play with the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge e220s a while ago, when it was first launched in my country during this Spring and now I also got to test it in these last weeks. My review is rather late, others pub...

solid body and high quality materials used for the exterior ; very nice design, sober and yet stylish ; powerful hardware for a 12.5 incher, despite lacking a dedicated graphic chip ; good spill-proof keyboard, despite some of its layout problems ;...

display is glossy ; not a big fan of the TrackPad with integrated click buttons ; can get quite hot under stress ; battery life is only average and there's no way to get a bigger battery for this one

With that in mind, you might ask whether the ThinkPad e220s is a good buy or not. Well, it depends, cause it is after all a niche product. If you need a small portable computer for everyday use, that comes with an ergonomic keyboard, a nice screen and...

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E220s

 

Lenovo's latest notebook is specially designed for small-business road warriors on a budget. The sub-$1,000 ThinkPad Edge E220s brings a slick, streamlined look to Lenovo's legendary family of business notebooks and features Intel's "Sandy Bridge"...

Sleek, lightweight chassis ; Sturdy build ; Lots of useful business features ; Comfortable keyboard

Subpar performance compared with standard-voltage Sandy Bridge CPUs ; No optical drive ; Unimpressive battery life ; Sealed battery

The ThinkPad Edge E220s is a stylish ultraportable powered by a second-generation Core i5 processor and loaded with a bevy of business-savvy features. It’s not perfect, but you can take it anywhere.

"Unreliable, slow, Often get blue screen of death."

 

Buy something else, or wait for bugs to be fixed.

Light. Does wok most of the time.

Relatively expensive and not worth it. Part of problems may be Windows 7, which is usual buggy Microsoft

"Perfect except for the battery"

 

The laptop is perfect , slim , portable , good display and its also fast .

The battery is a downside but considering the discount price i purchased mine at wiredmart.net its worth it .

"A Great All-Round Laptop"

 

Design

Chassis design; infinity glass display; keyboard; TrackPoint; value for money; cool running temperature; lack of bloatware

A few design niggles; glossy display glares; battery is non-removable; clickpad attracts fingerprints

A Great All-Round Laptop

 

Design My parents had those old brick ThinkPads. This is not one of those. I got this laptop only a few weeks after it was released, choosing it over the more expensive X201 simply for aesthetics. Lenovo did not disappoint. The chassis itself is...

sub-par battery life is deal-killer in a travel laptop

 

This sounds like a nice laptop, but with a sub-par battery life, it is not an "idea travel laptop." In a day when laptops pushing 10 hour battery life are not uncommon, a laptop with poor battery life is not a good travel laptop.

sounds like a good laptop if you need something light and don't travel a lot

sub-par battery life
