Review 4 for ThinkPad Edge 15" with AMD processors
no frills work unit
Date:July 19, 2014
"My purchase focus was for a practical, cost effective workhorse - style and gaming capabilities not important to me.
Overall rating of 3 stars due to the unit configuration I wanted was not available from Lenovo website. I purchased the unit from a reseller specializing in upgrading new units and then selling to consumer. The upgrades included a second 4gb stick and replacing the 5400 rpm hard drive with a 7200 rpm. I would have awarded 4 stars had these specs been available from Lenovo.
A compromise with this unit was the numeric keypad for which I have no use. It is a tolerable annoyance to type with hands shifted to the left of unit center.
I use a desktop (Intel i7 processor) for intensive video/photo editing tasks. The AMD processor works well for my laptop needed tasks and helped meet my desired unit pricepoint.
Reliability is not rated as only time will tell. Past experience with Lenovo/IBM Thinkpad units for both employment and personal use has been positive."
