The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge was released earlier January, 2010, as a laptop that offers a combination of features from the professional ThinkPad line and the consumer-oriented IdeaPad laptops. Lenovo made the ThinkPad Edge as an affordable and functional laptop so it would be the first ThinkPad to capture some of the mass consumer market, as opposed to ThinkPad laptops only being used for business.
All ThinkPad Edge laptops have energy-efficient, LED-backlit displays.
You can get a ThinkPad Edge in three sizes (13.3-inch, 14.0-inch, and 15.6-inch), and with each size you can get either AMD processors (paired with ATI graphics) or Intel processors (with Intel integrated HD graphics).
These ThinkPad Edge laptops are some of the few that you can customize on Lenovo's website so they are built to your liking. In all of these size and processor combinations, you can choose to upgrade the memory and hard drive storage. Other available upgrades include Bluetooth, extended life battery, and fingerprint reader. Check the top for some frequently updated ThinkPad Edge ecoupon which will give you some nice discount.

Notes on the ThinkPad Edge 13 AMD Version:
Previously Lenovo offered a ThinkPad Edge 13 AMD version with a Turion Dual-Core L625, which is no longer available. Perhaps because the Turion L625 was a bit underwhelming in battery life when compared to the Core2 Duo ULV version, but the CPU was a decent performer in terms of speed, especially as it was paired with a Radeon HD 3200, a step up from the Core2 Duo's GMA 3150 integrated graphics. With the Radeon HD 3200, you'll have HD playback capability, and you'll even be able to play moderate level of games (think pre-2007 games).
