Single position laptops seem to be outdating in terms of style. Well, that’s what we think when it comes to Lenovo laptops. Either is it four mode Yoga models or two position flex series, the company is trying to bring these convertible laptops to customer at every price range. Lenovo Edge 15 is best example. It’s a two mode laptop with 300 degree, with a full HD 1080p touch screen display. Edge 15 should be ideal for home and students who wants a big screen laptop.

DESIGN

In term of design the laptop is sleek and stylish. The aluminum body and deep black color made this laptop look even lenovo-laptop-flex-2-pro-keyboard
more elegant. When you open the lid you have power button, a big keyboard, a touchpad and speaker grills. On the sides you have a charging port, SD card slot, audio jack, 2x 2.0 USB (one on each side), 1 x 3.0 USB, HDMI port and Ethernet port. This laptop weighs around 5.1 pounds and has dimension of 19.4 x 15 x 4 inches, so you’ll be needing big bag to carry it.

DISPLAY

The display of EDGE 15 is 15.6 inch 1080p touch screen IPS display. Colors on this display looks quite good and have high contrast to it. The display is quite bright when tweaked to 100% brightness. The screen is of glossy type so have to keep cleaning to remove your fingerprints or have to use a screen protection to prevent smudges on the screen. Due to its glossy finish the screen is very reflective and is not ideal to use outdoors or in daylight. Still it’s a better looking display then many of the laptops in same price range.

PERFORMANCE

Lenovo Edge 15 comes with a 5th generation Intel core i5 processor which is clocked at 2.5 GHz and with 6GB of RAM. It also comes with Intel HD graphics 5500. This laptop is fast and multitasking. We didn’t face any problem doing normal multitasking on it. There were hiccups when we stream video with 7 tabs open in both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. This laptop can run old games and few new games with low settings.

BATTERY LIFE

The battery life on Edge 15 is the best thing about this laptop. With normal usage including web surfing and video streaming we got 8 hours and 17min on battery. This is the best companion for both students and office workers as it won’t run out juice that easily saving you from the hassle f caring a power brick

VERDICT

With simple and elegant design and powered with some decent specs, it one of the best laptop out there in the mid price range. This laptop is ideal for office and students as it has a very long battery life. You can do some gaming as well but it is not for those who are looking for some serious multitasking and hardcore gaming.
