Short hands on from CES: The new premium ThinkPad Edge line E220s and E420s

Hi dear members,

 

sorry, maybye a bit late, but I would like to provide last and not least, a short hands on and some pics of the new premium ThinkPad Edge E220s from the CES. Please also check out Marks post here about the new style.

 

Theses pics are showing the E220s. It was my favorite new model at the CES 2011!

With it´s polished metal accents and new moss black, soft touch finish that resists fingerprints and dirt, it is a joy to handle them.

It boots up in as little as 10 seconds*, so you don´t have to wait, when you just want to write some things down or want to start a video conference and this mean, you could be more productive at work. It is very light and thin and its lcd back cover is of magnesium and feels very sturdy.

Also availiable its bigger brother the E420s. Aimed to the SMB market it hasn´t a TPM chip and/or a docking port.

Because I have heard of a few questions, when it comes to this new models, I would like to answer some of them right now here.

 

Are these metal accents just chrome looking plastik?

No. The accents are made of metal and chromium finish.

Does it have the spill resistant keybord?

Yes. (It´s spill resistant but no holes at the bottom case)

 

Does it have metal hinges?

 

Yes.

 

Does it have touchpad buttons?

 

No, the buttons are integrated into the pad, so you have more place to swipe or touch on it. Worked pretty well!

 

*Results will vary based on software and hardware configuration

How can it be spill-resistant with no drain holes?

It probably has some alternate drain hole locations, like on the sides where it would be less likely to flood the planar and flow off the working surface instead.

 

Just guessing.

Hi Jane, Navck,

seems to be a variation of a spill resistant keyboard.

The X100e and the U260 seem to have the same type of spill resistant keyboards. Maybe a depot solution.
