Review Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E135 NZV5YGE Netbook

 

AMD ThinkPad. A ThinkPad for little money always sounds like hitt

Very rigid lid; Matte, non-slip surfaces; Dual Pointing; Keyboard's feedback; Long battery life; USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 4.0; Easy to upgrade; Low noise / waste heat; Admin and security software; Swift 7200 rpm hard disk

TFT could be brighter for daylight use; Weak contrasts; Noisy webcam pictures; Always audible hard disk

A different platform but even the innards have the same set up. The keyboard is almost identical with the pro-ThinkPad E125.

Trinity-ThinkPad. Lenovo expands the Thinkpad Edge series with an

Three USB 3.0 ports; Good Keyboard; Always Quiet; Good battery life

Bad display; The turbo-CPU is not fully taken advantage of; CPU-Throttling when under full stress

Competition for this device includes its own predecessor (Thinkpad Edge E525) and - to a limited extent - its brother with Intel on the inside (Thinkpad Edge E530). Other office device manufacturers: Topliste Office.

Anti-Glare. Lenovo upgrades its ThinkPad Edge models by adding an

Good Workmanship; Matt Surfaces; Anti-Glare Display; HDMI, eSATA; Sufficient Program Performance; Fast and Big Hard Disk; TrackPoint and TouchPad; Good Keyboard; Good Run Times

Few Extras included in Delivery; No Docking Station Interface; Weak Contrast; Low Brightness when running on Battery; High Temperature Emissions under Load; High Idle Power Consumption

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13 with the K625 for 333 Euros (without OS); Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E325 with AMD E-350: less CPU performance; Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13 with Athlon X2 Neo L325: without eSata; Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 with Core i5-450M: for users who want...

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge Twist Review

 

The release of Windows 8 has forced laptop manufacturers to re-think their approach to the device. Companies have been challenged to come up with new ideas for convertibles they have no experience producing. Lenovo, however, has been in this business...

Good build quality ; Thin and light ; Excellent keyboard ; Great hardware value

Limited connectivity ; Extremely dim display backlight ; Runs hot when displaying 3D graphics ; Confusing bloatware

We weren’t surprised to find that Lenovo’s new convertible is a good laptop. The company’s experience in this area has paid off with Microsoft’s move towards touchscreen devices. No other convertible on the market can match the value proposition of the...

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge Twist

 

Long before the iPad, Galaxy Note, or Nook HD, a tablet was usually a Windows device that spent most of its time set up as a traditional clamshell laptop, but could also twist or swivel its display around to form a touch screen slate. Lenovo and HP...

The ThinkPad Twist has great Lenovo construction, a responsive touch screen, and a center hinge for flipping into tablet mode, all for a very reasonable price.

The screen accelerometer can have a mind of its own, flipping into portrait view randomly. Battery life is merely OK, and the screen resolution is low for a modern laptop/tablet convertible.

Slightly less conservative-feeling than the average ThinkPad, the well-made ThinkPad Twist offers one of the better tablet modes from the first wave of Windows 8 convertibles.

The 14-inch version of Lenovo's small-business notebook delivers power and style at an affordable price.

Strong performance ; Best-in-class keyboard and touchpad ; Three lid options ; Solid battery life ; Great value

Narrow viewing angles ; Mediocre hard drive
