5 out of 5 eggsSolid and capable notebook

Pros: The Lenovo Edge E420 is solid. It has a nice keyboard. The computer is very quiet except for an occasional fan burst. Unless my room is very quiet, the burst is inaudible, and -- when heard -- is hardly intrusive. A small detail, but I really like that it has a two-prong power cord instead of a three. Fingerprint reader works. Speakers are good for a laptop. Bluetooth, Windows 7 Pro, Intel wireless card. All together a nice bang for the buck.

Not a ton of bloatware to uninstall. I don't know what the current trend is, but this computer has less bloatware than expected. The out-of-box experience is favorable. There are too many snafus for an inexperienced/naive user, but the overall experience is better than usual.

Battery life is really good. Lenovo ThinkVantage software is good. I'll probably use only some of it. I haven't figured out which ones are keepers. Google Chrome was pre-installed, yay!

Cons: I was not bowled-over by the screen brightness or clarity. It's about what I expected from reviews. Weigh carefully if you're unsure about the matte finish. Also, the bezel is pretty wide -- something I failed to notice in the pictures. I'm very satisfied, considering the only way I know to get a glossy screen is to buy a more costly model. Alternatively, one can custom-configure a similar unit, the E430, on Lenovo's web site. A similar setup with a glossy screen costs $100 more (incl. sales tax) than this E420.

Many reboots are required to bring the system up-to-date and to remove unwanted items. I immediately removed Office trial and Norton trial. Each of those operations required a reboot. The Lenovo ThinkVantage program demanded a boatload of updates/reboots as well.

PgUp and PgDn are not keys, but flat buttons.

Other Thoughts: Windows Experience Index is 4.7 overall. Breakdown is proc. 6.7, mem. 5.9, graphics 4.7, gaming graphics 6.2, hd 5.9. I don't understand why gaming graphics score is higher than the graphics score.

You get one shot at burning recovery media. It took me 1.2 hours to burn four DVD+Rs. Four 16X, 4.7GB discs.
