Is the Edge 11 End of Life?

2011-09-05, 15:50 PM

Hi

 

Can anybody tell me if the ThinkPad Edge 11 has gone end of life in the UK? It's mentioned on the Lenovo website but I don't seem to have the option of actually buying it or checking specs against other similar models.

 

Has it been dropped or just rebranded as another model??

 

Cheers for now.

The Edge 11 has been superseded, as such any old stock you see are just left over and they are no longer produced.

There are also:

If you need 11 inch laptops, then you could look to the X121e, X120e, etc. There are bit more option in the 12 inch and 13 inch range, like the E220s and E320, etc.

Hi

 

Thanks for your reply...unfortunately you've confirmed my suspicions!!

 

Is there an "Official" announcement on this anywhere? The reaon I'm asking is that we bought 100 of these notebooks back in May this year and we were hoping to buy another 150 before the year is out. So if the Edge 11 went end of life before May, I need to ask the supplier why he sold us a bit of a lemon and didn't suggest the X series instead!!

 

Thanks again for your assistance

it is not end of life as such, but rather it is end of product marketing cycle. There is no announcements, once all the stocks are sold then that is it. Lenovo don't have a direct replacement of the Edge 11 as of yet.

The supplier probably got this laptop cheap from Lenovo.

i was under impression that thinkpad edge e120 (intel) and edge e125 (amd) are direct successors of edge 11. next question to be answerd is will they be available in uk at all.

There is no direct replacement for the Edge 11 but I think the closest in performance is the Edge 220, I think it is more expensive than the Edge 11.
