Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 budget laptop edges out

Lenovo has announced the "smallest and lightest" member of the ThinkPad Edge range - the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11.

With a screen size of 11.6 inches, this notebook has a thickness (or should that be thinness?) of 2.8cm, which is by no means the slimmest notebook we've seen but, at just 1.3kg, the weight is pretty impressive.

This netbook/notebook (you choose) gives you the choice of either an Intel Core or an AMD Vision Pro Athlon low voltage processor, which means battery life is pretty decent - up to 7 hours with the 6-cell battery.

It has a full size, spill-proof keyboard and comes with Wi-Fi as standard and Qualcomm Gobi powered 3G as an optional extra.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 is out now, with prices starting from a very reasonable £376. Like the other ThinkPad Edge models, your onboard hardware is pretty customisable and you've also got a choice of three colours as well: Midnight black glossy, midnight black smooth and heatwave red.
