It is sometimes funny the type of things you spot at a large trade show and this time it appears that Lenovo has uncovered its forth coming ThinkPad Edge E125 quite early at the event of Computex. Well, from the first glance, it tooks all of us by surprise.
It was standing alone in the crowd of other AMD notebooks which were powered by Brazon at the AMD press conference and no one seemed interested in having a look at them but off-course us, this technically means that we’re always in a hunt for something new in tech world.
You may feel to hear the fact that we are still not having too many details about this cameo by Lenovo as we only went on-hands with it for few minutes, it was only allowed to check on to the products you like until the conference starts. Anyways, the good news for this ThinkPad is that it has retained the ‘nipple’ while unfortunately it is having a small clickpad, you can say similar to what ThinkPad Edge E220s has got. This ThinkPad offers you a keyboard which is Lenovo’s new chiclet model featuring top row keys based upon half-heights, the set-up of the top row keys may not be very familiar with everyone but we found it something decent to type on, even on this size of a notebook, we weren’t making such fumbles while typing.
If you’re a ThinkPad owner already then you may feel that connectivity options are not sufficient enough for any user as it contains a D-sub and HDMI port for hooking it up with any bigger screen that you like, 3 USB 2.0 ports of which you can charge all of your devices with a yellow colored one and this could happen even with notebook switched off. Moreover, you will get an Ethernet port (no big deal!) a single head-set jack and also a very useful memory card slot. A built-in webcam has been put in as an extra perk for users and as well as Wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Off-course the 11.6 inch is not what you call ‘large’ size screen and people who fancy large screen displays would be hurt here, we rushed over to this ThinkPad and we thought it was fine if it has not a large screen display but it should have a glossy one. Sadly, the company couldn’t do a good job with the screen bezel either ; as it is quite thicker, even if you compare it with X120e. The best quality about this ThinkPad is its size and weight and this is what it would be sold off for. We can’t enlighten you about the battery life and what issues are coming out of it or if it is perfect, at the moment we are empty. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear something about this matter but we do hope that it’ll be a 4-cell battery here.
Through the whole conference we were not able to carve out the availability date of this amazing device, the Lenovo’s ThinkPad Edge E125 and we aren’t sure if it is going to be integrated with a current E-350 processor or even the upcoming model E-450 by AMD. Anyways, we still have to wait for so long in order to see this thing landing in the markets. Stay tuned for some more news about Edge E125, do not miss it!
