The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E220s is a thin and light computer that’s pushing the boundaries of the thin and light space thanks to its unusual (but not quite unique) 12.5 inch display. The notebook also packs more power than many of its smaller siblings, thanks to an Intel core i5-2537M processor. Lenovo is now taking orders for the notebook for $749 and up.
The base model comes with 2GB of DDR3 memory, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and a 43Whr battery. The notebook has a 1366 x 768 pixel display and Windows 7 Home Premium.
You can also upgrade the notebook with an Intel Core i7-2617M processor, Windows 7 Professional, up to 4GB of memory, Bluetooth, a 3G modem, and a larger hard drive or optional solid state disk.
The upgrade from 2GB to 4GB of RAM is free right now, so if you’re thinking about picking up this laptop, I’d highly recommend clicking the customize button and adding the memory upgrade.
The folks at LogicBuy also have a coupon that will cut almost $40 off the price.
Update: Engadget notes that the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 and X220T are also now shipping for $849 and up. The notebook and convertible tablet feature an Intel core i3-2310M processor, a 12.5 inch IPS display, and a business-like design.
