Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E420 Gets Reviewed!
The ThinkPad with an added touch of personality for customer facing roles in small to medium sized businesses is pretty slimmed down by 13 percent than its predecessors. It’s nicely wrapped in a refined, soft matte finish and reinforced with sturdy metal hinges. Lenovo’s legendary spill resistant keyboard is also upgraded to make sure that typing and data entry jobs become as comfortable like never before. The laptops boast of reliability and security as well with its Active Protection System which keeps the hard disk safe while on the move, while the fingerprint reader quite effectively keeps the intruders at bay from hacking the computer’s data. The powerful ThinkPad Edge is ready to take on any challenge one may throw at it. It offers really rapid computing experience with 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors; speed and responsiveness with up to 8 GB of DDR3 RAM and large storage space with up to 750 GB hard drives. The visually demanding applications are met by Integrated Intel® HD Graphics which delivers a smoother experience. Boot time is also reduced with Lenovo Enhanced Experience 2.0. Besides a faster laptop, the E420/E520 will also help you work smarter with eco-friendly initiatives: packaging made out of 100 percent recyclable material and compliance with environmental standards (including ENERGY STAR, EPEAT® Gold and the RoHS Directive). Now with the E420, keeping in touch with employees, clients and rest of the world becomes much easier and handy with a slew of available connections: WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, and options for WWAN, WiMAX and Bluetooth®. Also, during web calls one can easily switch the microphone to “conference room mode” to enhance multiple voices from across the room, and enable keyboard noise suppression technology so that note taking becomes much easier process. Now making an important presentation is no more a heavy task with the HDMI out port to project big ideas on the small screen. And as far as accessories are concerned there are loads on offer. While working in the office one can always attach the discrete Lenovo Video Docking port replicator for convenient cable management and connectivity outlets for a monitor, LAN and four USB 2.0 devices. The light weight and easy to carry ‘Lenovo 90W Ultraslim AC/DC Combo Adapter’ is very handy on the road and allows one to charge both the laptop and a peripheral device (like a cell phone) via an included dual charging cable at the same time. So over all the laptop is a very wise investment to make.
