Lenovo has unveiled a new thin and light laptop called the ThinkPad Edge E220s which features a 12.5 inch display and Intel Core i-series chipset. The ThinkPad Edge E220s is only the third laptop I’m aware of to have a 12.5 inch screen. The others are the recently introduced LG Xnote P210 and thee Lenovo Ideapad U260, which features similar specs, but a different case design. Lenovo’s IdeaPad series is also aimed at consumers, while ThinkPad models are targeted at business users.

The ThinkPad Edge E220s measures less than an inch thick and weighs 3.5 pounds. It has an aluminum-magnesium lid with a matte finish, and a keyboard that looks similar to the one you’d find on other ThinkPad laptops — as well as Lenovo’s TouchPoint system.

The laptop will be available with a choice of Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 processors — although it doesn’t look like the Core i3 model will be available in the US. It supports up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 5400RPM or 7200RPM hard drive, or an 80GB or 128GB SSD. The laptop has a low light sensitive 720p HD webcam, VGA and HDMI ports, and 3 USB ports including one that is powered and one that can also be used as an eSAA port.

Lenovo offers integrated WiFi, as well as 3G and 4G/WiMAX options. The computer has VGA and HDMI output and Dolby sound. The Lenovo ThinkPad E220s measures 12.3″ x 8.4″ x 0.86″.

Lenovo has also introduced a larger model called the ThinkPad Edge E420s which has a 14.1 inch display and comes with additional options including AMD Radeon switchable graphics (in select markets) and a slot-loading DVD burner).

The ThinkPad Edge E220s will have a starting price of $799.

  1. wasted a couple of minutes on their website to find out if these new machines have decent, high, screen resolutions, that info is well hidden on the German site, could not even find the number of pixels in the detailed specs .. wtf and I have been a lenovo fan for years .. once you go black you never go back?
    I need 1600 horizontal pixels minimum but hard to find these days in small laptops ..
    I had to get a Sony Vaio P, because nothing small from Lenovo could offer 1600 pixel resolution ..
