Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E130

Rank:4/100 (?)
With the ThinkPad Edge 130, Lenovo released a decent piece of hardware for a reasonable price. It comes with different CPU options: Intel Pentium 977 being the lower end and Intel Core i3 being the higher end option. With 4GB of RAM and 320GB of Storage (HDD) it serves well enough for most purposes we encounter. One special thing we like is the upgradability that comes with this laptop. One can change storage, add RAM to the second memory bank or replace broken parts with ease. What's fascinating about this model is the 63Wh battery Lenovo chose to deliver as a standard power souce at that low price point.

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E130 Alternatives

Sony VAIO Pro 11, 11.6", 870gm
The Sony VAIO Pro comes in 6 different versions, four 13" versions varying by RAM and SSD size - and two 11.6" versions. At only 1060g the 13" version is incredibly light and easy to take with. Sony's newest Triluminos-Display technology combined with a Full HD resolution make this display very color-true and will most probably be loved by Photographers or Videoproducers. One nifty little thing is the AC adapter, as it comes with a built-in Ethernet to Wifi Router which can be detached to give room to the hidden USB-Port for charging other devices.
Acer Aspire S7 11", 11.6", 1100gm
The Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabooks were launched Taipei at one of the first press events getting a head-start on some of the other Ultrabooks at Computex 2012. The 11.6 and 13.3″ Ultrabooks offer premium features and long battery life. Available later in the year with HD screens with touch and Windows 8. The battery life claims are very interesting. Up to 9hrs claimed for the 11.6" model is much more than we've seen on similar 1st-gen Ultrabooks.
ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A, 11.6", 1100gm
The ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A is an Ivy Bridge based Ultrabook with an incredible 1920x1080 11.6" IPS display. It offers 3xUSB 3.0, 1 microHDMI and 1 miniVGA port. With its 1.1kg it is a lightweight and yet powerful device. Pricing is still unavailable and it will most likely start selling in June.
Samsung Chromebook, 11.6", 1100gm
The all new Samsung Chromebook (Exynos 5) is a new Chromebook running on an ARM Cortex A15 platform. It comes at a sub 250$ price point to the US. Europe seems to pass on that device. With a 3G option and a very attractive 1.1kg weight this chromebook can be a companion for travelling around the globe. Google and Samsung are claiming a battery life of up to 6.3 hours.
ASUS Vivo Tab Smart, 10.6", 580gm
The ASUS Vivo Tab SMart is a smaller, lower cost version of the Vivo Tab. Still a full WIndows 8 tablet running on Atom, it has a 10" screen and no digitiser support.
Mouse Computers LuvBook X, 11.6", 985gm
Releasing a 1st-generation Ultrabook while the excitement builds to 2nd-gen Ultrabooks based on Ivy Bridge may, at first, seem a stupid move but when it’s a unique product like the new LuvBook X from Mouse Computers in Japan, it may not make much difference. The LuvBook X is going to be the second 11.6” Ultrabook on the market, the first with a carbon-fiber body and the first to break 1KG. It's battery is supposed to run up to 5.5 hours.
Gigabyte X11, 11.6", 973gm
Very similar to the Mouse Computers LuvBook X, the carbon-fiber build permits a very lightweight build - lighter than a netbook. Ivy Bridge makes this a 2nd-generation Ultrabook. Availability expected Q3 2012.
