Lenovo ThinkPad Edge Review
We continued our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA 2009, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran four of the built-in subsystem tests (CPU Arithmetic, Multimedia, Memory Bandwidth, Physical Disks). All of the scores reported below were taken with the processor running at its default clock speed.

The Edge 13" was a pretty middle-of-the-road contender in most of these tests. The 5400RPM hard drive wasn't exactly the fastest thing we've tested (an SSD in here would really make the system scream), but having 4GB of DDR3 memory certainly helped. For a CULV-based ultraportable, the numbers aren't too shabby, and real-world performance was better than expected.
