Manufacturer's Description

The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E420s would never be accused of being pretty, though it is worth noting that the ThinkPad range has come a long way since Lenovo acquired it from IBM. They’re still built like tanks, though, and the E420s is built to shrug off some battering on its travels.

For old-school laptop users Lenovo provides a choice of input methods. There is a trackpoint for controlling the cursor, placed in the middle of the keyboard, along with left- and right-click buttons just below the spacebar; or you can use the more popular trackpad with buttons at the bottom – it’s up to you.

Given that it isn’t the widest chassis on test typing on the keyboard is relatively comfortable, but you need to learn to avoid accidentally knocking the trackpoint if you don’t want your cursor scooting off at inconvenient moments.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad Edge is aimed at people who want a laptop to use on the move, weighing just 2kg, so it seems strange to us that it should have such a poor battery. In our tests, the ThinkPad only ran for two and three-quarter hours before expiring – almost two hours short of the next-worst models in this batch.
