Lenovo Philippines is advancing their products continually, though getting back with some of their thin ultra portables like the ThinkPad Edge 11 at a lower price of Php29,990 won’t hurt you but will still attend your mobile computing needs affordably.
What you’d like about this one is its size of 11.6” HD Glossy wide screen, which is not too small but also not too big at all. Of course, under the hood you can expect a more powerful Intel Core i3-380UM processor, that is a 1.33GHz, 3MB cache memory with a 2.5 GT/s DMI. It has a 2GB DDR3 memory and 320GB SATA HDD (5400rpm) capacity.
Regarding connectivity, it includes WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1, Gigabit LAN, 3 slots of USB 2.0 ports and a HDMI port. A 6-cell Li-ion battery powers the machine. However, this down-priced ThinkPad does not include a Windows OS but you’ll still have to add up on top of its DOS. Edge 11 comes in two colors you can choose from, the Matte Black and Heatwave Red. It also has their legendary TrackPoint together with the touchpad.
Besides having the marked-down price of P29,990 from about P35,000 on its initial launching December, it comes with FREE Php300 SM Movie pass and 1 raffle coupon for their “Sa Edge Laging Panalo” promo. This runs till March 31, 2011, though the raffle ticket is only available at PC Express and Villman stores. You can also opt to get it at installment through your credit card for Php4,983.33 for 6 months at 0% interest rate.
