Differences between Edge series and L series

2020-10-21, 17:42 PM

Hi guys, my 6 years old Asus is starting to show signs of age, and I was thinking about replacing it with a Thinkpad. Being a poor man, the T or X series is out of question for me (sadly). So I was thinking about getting either the E460 (if it's one day available in France ...) or the L450 laptop. Given everythin I read here, I'm still not clear about the differences between the E series and the L series , they have almost the same price and configuration. Does someone know what are the main differences between the two series ? Should I take the E460 or the L450 ?

Thanks guys !

Hello gehilpiku84,


the E series is ranked higher than the L series, meaning, that even with the same configuration, the materials used on the E laptop are going to be more durable and of higher quality. This is also true for the components used, even though they might seem similar when it comes to their specifications.

The other difference between the E460 and L450 is, that the E460 is a younger model than the L450. If I'm correct, the L450 came out in the beginning of 2015 and the E460 came out late 2015 / early 2016.


Best regards,
