Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 Reviews
NotebookReview reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 and writes;
“Even with a simple configuration with 2 GB of system memory and a 250GB 5400RPM hard drive, we found the system to be more than powerful enough for most tasks, excluding gaming. Office productivity applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook loaded quickly and worked with very little lag. Entertainment-related applications worked very well, with the Core i3 processor and GMA HD graphics having no trouble handling HD video playback..”
PCmag reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 and writes;
“Pros: Inexpensive. Fabulous user experience. Dual pointing devices. Big screen. HDMI port and ExpressCard slot included. Cons: Drab aesthetics. Only 2GB of RAM in the base configuration. Low screen resolution.”
ThinkComputers reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 and writes;
“One thing that I’ve always appreciated about ThinkPad laptops is the ThinkVantage software suite. It is a software suite that has many programs that make using your laptop easier and offer a lot of extra features and customizations…”
Smallbusinesscomputing reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 and writes;
“Upon opening the ThinkPad Edge 15, you’re greeted by a spacious and very comfortable island-style keyboard (where the keys are separated by small gaps) centered amidst a wide flat expanse. Some 15-inch notebooks have begun to incorporate keyboards with a full numeric keypad in order to make full use of all available real estate, but we don’t lament the Edge’s lack of one..”
techbreak reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 and writes;
“Finally, the battery life on the edge was pretty impressive. We got almost six and a half hours in our tests which should keep you working or entertained during a long flight without much of an issue. Prices for Edge 15″ start at US$749 (AED ) which will get you the Core i3 with Intel integrated graphics version.”

A Sweet Business Edge
SMB owner and entrepreneur Lev Ekster created a hit recently with the first mobile cupcake shop in New York City – the Cupcake Stop. Ekster relies on the ThinkPad Edge 13 inch laptop to help him run and grow the business. He uses it for ordering supplies, developing menus, processing payroll and even marketing his business through social media like Facebook and Twitter.
“I spend nearly 95% of my day out of the office, so having an ultra-mobile laptop that can keep up with me is extremely important,” said Lev Ekster, owner, the Cupcake Stop. “With the ThinkPad Edge, I can focus on my business, whether I’m at home, in the truck or on my way to a new partner meeting. I use WiFi and AT&T’s 3G broadband service to message customers my location and the cupcake of the day. The laptop handles the different office tasks I throw at it, and it fits my image and style as an ambitious, focused small business owner.”
So far, the ThinkPad Edge laptop has helped Ekster send 1,000 tweets, 50 Facebook posts, process 300 employee hours and run 11 hours a day on average.
AT&T’s 3G service is available on a full range of Lenovo ThinkPad laptops, which come factory-equipped with built-in mobile broadband modules that are enabled for AT&T LaptopConnect. The service provides extensive broadband access both domestically and internationally.

The ThinkPad 14 and 15 inch laptops are available now through business partners, www.lenovo.com and leading retailers including Best Buy for Business stores beginning in April. Pricing for select models starts at approximately $599.
