4.0 out of 5 stars Good spec, shame about the keyboard 18 Dec 2013
By Mameha

This is a solid laptop, with a good processor for the money.

The screen is nice, and it is good size (15.6 inch) without being too heavy. Its a lot lighter than my old laptop which is a similar size.

A few niggly things:
1) Keyboard layout is awful. They have copied the Chromebook style of having quick buttons instead of function keys at the top. Worse, they CTRL and FN keys are the wrong way around, and PgUp and PgDn buttons are also in a weird place. This kind of non-standard keyboard would take some getting used too...if you are new to using a keyboard it wouldn't be a problem however.
2) USB ports are at the front of the laptop, this gets in the way a bit when you plugin a mouse.
3) The intel centrino wifi card is a bit niggly. It was actually crashing the wifi in the router and making it reboot! I had to turn off wireless "N" in the adapter settings and make it use "G", then it was perfect. Reading online, there seem to be other various niggles with this wifi card. At first the wifi didnt work on Ubuntu (on a virtual machine) but after installing the drivers manually that also started working.

To speed up the machine a lot, I put in a Sandisk 128GB SSD hard drive which I got for about 63 pounds here on Amazon. This was a simple and quick job to install, you just have to create the recovery DVDs (using the lenovo software installed) first before swapping the drives over. Then you install windows 7 from the recovery DVDs. Do not install windows 8 as it is a terrible OS designed for touchscreens (this laptop doesnt have a touchscreen!). You can sell the old hard drive for about 30 quid or use it as an external drive.

I bought this laptop for an organisation I was doing a project for. I also need a new laptop myself and would consider this one, but only if I couldn't get a similar spec with a better keyboard from another manufacturer. The keyboard is a killer for me, it is a real drag and distration.

Really pleased with the performance and most features; it offers good value for money. The downsides are: No catch to keep the lid closed. The function keys F1-F12, used extensively in all my applications, are labelled prominently with their alternative functions (volume, screen brightness, etc) and in small dark red text with their F1, F2, etc. This is a really poor and stupid decision. Not only that, by default you have to press the Fn key to access the real functions. You can change this in BIOS, but shouldn't have to, and you're still left with the poor legends. So, good product, just a couple of poor design errors.

I bought this Lenovo ThinkPad Edge after the motherboard died on my previous laptop (which I'd owned for over 4 years). I spent a great deal of time researching a good replacement online. I have to spend a lot of time abroad for work and I use my laptop as my primary computer for work so my chief concern, above all others, was reliability and durability as I didn't want to have a laptop that failed on me whilst I was out of the country as this can be a nightmare to get resolved.
My search for a reliable and durable laptop lead me to Lenovo, which seemed to have good reviews on this front, and then to this laptop which is marketed on their website as providing a "durable, reliable package." It also came with a 1 year international manufacturer's warranty meaning that, supposedly, I could get support pretty much anywhere in the world if I experienced problems up to 12 months after my purchase. Sounded like a perfect match.

How horribly wrong Lenovo would prove me to be.

Countless problems from the moment I started using the Laptop. To begin with, the sound and the video camera drivers were not installed properly so I had no sound and could not use my video camera. Fortunately I was able to look up this problem online (where it quickly became apparent that there were lots of other frustrated customers who were also suffering the same problem) and solve them with the solutions posted on some internet forums. Secondly, the Wifi and the Network & Sharing Centre were not working correctly: the wifi kept dropping out and the Network & Sharing Centre would continually freeze and crash and would not work again until the computer was restarted. This problem I could not fix myself and had to get a friend, who is an IT technician, to fix it for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars solidly built, OK speed 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
It seems to be well built machine with a good quality keyboard. I was surprised that despite it's i3 processor it's no quicker subjectively than the 5 year old Samsung it replaced which has a low power AMD processor, a bit like a Celeron. It does run Win7 pro rather than home so maybe its the Andy giveth Bill taketh away effect. The left/right click buttons are above the touchpad which took some getting used to.
I bought it hoping it would last a bit like IBM machines used to so ask me what I think in 5 years time.
