Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E420s 14in Core i5 laptop


Too Short; Too Fat

It would be a kindness to remind your readers that 768 vertical pixels are VASTLY inadequate for any serious use. Even browsing is a pain and 768 pixels are insufficient for any serious word processing and many spreadsheets. The only reason for that crazy screen shape comes in two letters: DV, followed by a repeated D.

My T400s is better, 1440x900, but still insufficiently tall and at the price of teeny, tiny type. Anyone who actually works on a portable needs 4x3 or even a square screen, with as much vertical real estate as possible.

So, please remind your readers that 768 pixels are not enough, unless the laptop is meant only for email and DVDs.
