San Francisco (GaeaTimes.com) - Lenovo is expanding its ThinkPad Edge family once again and their latest product is ThinkPad Edge 11. The 11.6-inch lappy looks like a netbook at first glance but it is not as slow and weak like a netbook. It is available with AMD’s single and dual core Nile platform and Intel Core i3/i5 processor. The AMD version will start at $450 and the Intel version at around $550.


The notebook has a glossy display with 1366X768 pixel resolution, AMD Vision pro Athlon processor or Intel 1.33GHz core i3 U380, Wi-Fi and preloaded windows 7. It measures in at less than 1.1 inches thick and has a weight of less than 3 pounds. A three-cell battery is there and I am quite unsure how long it can power an energy hog processor from AMD. It has many attractive colors like Midnight Black Glossy, Midnight Black Smooth and Heatwave Red Glossy. It also includes three USB ports, a 4 in 1 media card reader and option for 3G or 4G/WiMAX connectivity. It is light and slender to fit into a small shoulder bag.

The notebook comes with Lenovo’s new “keycaped” chiclet keyboards with black, matte curved keys, which look just downright glorious. The Edge 11 has and 2GB of RAM. Its graphics is Intel GMA HD graphics.

At the end of the day we can say that it solves the major issues of X100e. It lasted over five hours on a single charge, its dapper design and loveable keyboard puts it at the top of our 11.6inch laptop list. It is difficult to find better laptop than ThinkPad Edge 11 at the same price range.
