Amazingly slow wi-fi a huge letdown

Date:July 25, 2014
"Somewhat heavy for the size and configuration, this laptop performs like 10-year-old tech. Poor battery life is one thing, but the wi-fi throughput on downloads is 1/125 (!) what I get on my 3-year-old ASUS gaming laptop (on the same network and router with identical settings.) It's bad enough that (for example) pages with active content like weather radar NEVER successfully load. A major disappointment."

Good Solid Performer

Date:July 17, 2014
"This is my second ThinkPad Edge, previous was an E520.
On the whole this is a great computer for the price. Got mine with the A10 and 8GB of Ram. 2Dimms.
Lack of SSD option annoyed me. HDDs make computers SLOWWWW.
Some nit picky things such as the LAN port being on the right side instead of the back annoy me. but as far as build quality and performance goes I can not complain as of yet."

Great computer, poor Office 2013

Date:May 31, 2014
"I like this computer and the Windows 7 Pro operating system very much. It fully meets my expectations. However, the Office 2013 suite I purchased with the computer looks and feels terrible. It is a giant step backwards from Office 2010--it looks flat, ugly, cheap, and clunky. Buy this computer without regret, but do not buy Office 2013 if you can possibly avoid it."

ThinkPad quality still exists

Date:May 29, 2014
"Win 7 pro compliments this computer as a work machine, keyboard and pad work flawlessly. speed is more than acceptable with 4gb ram. Quiet, slim, light feel, I anticipate no issues now or in the future, my thanks to Lenovo for this unit."

Solid build quality and fantastic customer service

Date:May 17, 2014
"I upgraded from my old laptop with quad-core 1.4 GHz AMD A6-3400M APU.Two cores of AMD A6-5350M in this E545 laptop run at 2.9 GHz. Due to higher clock speed the system runs typical office applications noticeably faster than my old one. Great value. Highly recommended."
