Len­ovo, $958 len­ovo.com.au

★★ The Len­ovo ThinkPad Edge 15 is rem­i­nis­cent of a busi­ness­man’s work ma­chine. It’s a lit­tle drab com­pared with its ri­vals, but its style shows im­prove­ment. Some ThinkPad trade­marks live on. It has a de­cent pro­ces­sor, an In­tel i3, that is more than ca­pa­ble of han­dling stu­dent work. De­spite the pro­cess­ing power, it is ham­pered by the in­clu­sion of just 2GB RAM and a 250GB hard drive though, luck­ily, there is space to up­grade the RAM. The other throw­back in the Edge 15 is its key­board: it’s com­fort­able and has a track­pad and a stick for se­lec­tions. The Edge 15 also has plenty of ports, in­clud­ing an HDMI port, so this 15-inch, Win­dows 7 ma­chine can be used as a me­dia player when plugged into a TV.
