LENOVO THINKPAD EDGE 15
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.
