Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 14: Our Deal of the Week

by Reads (13,578)

The 14-inch Lenovo ThinkPad Edge with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit is a multimedia notebook with a high performance processor. It is currently being sold for $600 through the Office Depot online store; that’s $150 off the regular list price and $270 off the MSRP of the models with the lower-performance processors, making it an even better deal.


We reviewed the model with an Intel Core i3-330M and 2GB of RAM, but since this model has an Intel Core i5-480M at 2.66 GHz CPU with Turbo Boost technology and 4GB of RAM that can easily be upgraded to 8GB, it’s safe to say that this particular model can be a multimedia notebook with fast multi-tasking power. Hard drive storage space is decent at this price too–it comes built with a 500GB capacity hard drive at 5400RPM.

That aside, the Edge 14 may regularly be used as a small business notebook as well, as we said in our review. The screen size, keyboard, speakers, graphics card, and and built-in fingerprint reader are considered more on par with a business-grade notebook type, even with the processor and memory proving to be fully capable. We said the keyboard is “comfortable and easy to type on” and the Edge 14 features a 1366 x 768 resolution WXGA glossy display. The notebook comes with a standard integrated HD graphics card with shared memory.

In our battery test the Edge 14 stayed on for four hours and 33 minutes. The system comes with a 6-cell 57Wh battery.
