When you think of ThinkPad’s you think of business notebooks and they really are. I’ve reviewed quite a few ThinkPad’s over the past few years and the features are unrivaled when it comes to other notebooks. But the thing about the ThinkPad’s is that they don’t appeal to many people, even small business users. Lenovo noticed this and came out with the ThinkPad Edge. The Edge is a very attractive 13-inch notebook that provides the right amount of business and consumer features. The Edge is also one of the first ThinkPad’s that has an AMD processor option. Let’s see if the ThinkPad Edge is the perfect new laptop for you!

We received the ThinkPad Edge directly from Lenovo so if you order it directly from them this is how it should come. We received a large box from Lenovo only a few days after we got the confirmation from them. Inside of that box is actually the product box that has the notebook inside of it.
Opening up the main product we can see that everything inside is nicely protected. Once we get everything out we have the ThinkPad Edge notebook, power adapter, battery and a getting started guide.
