Review Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E330 Notebook

 

Another try. This is the third attempt by Lenovo to make the affordable 13 inch ThinkPad Edge into a blockbuster in the entry level business segment. A slightly reworked case and improved stability are supposed to make the difference this time around....

Good battery life, Very good upgradability, Quiet operation, Good system performance, First class keyboard & TrackPoint, USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 4.0, Despite the low price the E330 is able to impress with its solid build quality and exceptional input...

Low contrast display, ClickPad takes getting used to, No keyboard backlight, Only 12 months warranty, A keyboard backlight (or a ThinkLight) would improve working in dark surroundings
