Lenovo ThinkPad E220s review: Lenovo ThinkPad E220s

 

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...

BUSINESS READY!

Expert review by: John R. Delaney (computershopper.com)

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.

Great Deal

 

Am very satisfied with ThinkPad. Only downfall is no disc drive. I did not think to check for one before I bought it.

Consumer review by: Lean (tigerdirect.com)

Great Deal

 

An excellent product for the money with a great discount. It's really thin and light, core i5 performance is great and has a low power consumption just 17W compared with the standard 35W... only detail that its not said is that the battery is internal,...

Consumer review by: mcnoodle? (circuitcity.com)

light and fast

 

The Hard Drive on my Dell went kaput so I quickly shopped around and found this lightweight (about 2.6 pounds) with a great screen, fast operating system (Windows 7.0 professional) and about 4 hours of battery operation while on the wireless internet....
