Review Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 (NZQBQGE) Notebook


Consumer laptop for business. Lenovo's ThinkPad Edge E530 is tryi

Good system performance; Good upgrade options; Bright and matte screen; Cool case

Contrast weak, viewing angle dependent and course resolution screen; Partly fluctuating fan; GPU's performance throttling on battery
