Lenovo Edge 15 announced
To respond to consumer need for an even thinner and lighter dual mode laptop, Lenovo created the Edge 15. At under an inch thin and weighing just over five pounds, the Edge 15 convertible laptop is Lenovo’s thinnest and 15-inch consumer laptop yet. Encased in a premium aluminum chassis, a 300-degree hinge offers users an easy way to transition between its two modes: Laptop and Stand. With the AccuType backlit keyboard and touchpad, using the Edge 15 in Laptop Mode makes typing comfortable on this Windows 8.1 laptop. When it’s time to kick back, flip the Edge 15 into Stand Mode to enjoy intuitive touch applications or make a video call with the integrated 720p HD webcam and crisp dual array digital microphone.
The Edge 15 features a 15.6-inch IPS FHD display that supports 10-point multi-touch for a more interactive computing experience. Paired with NVIDIA® GeForce® GT840M 4GB or integrated Intel® HD Graphics and Dolby Home Theater stereo speakers, the Edge 15 provides a rich entertainment experience. The Edge 15 also boasts all-day power with an up to eight hour battery1. This makes the Edge 15 ideal for users who don’t want to be tied down with a power cord when on the road, at a business meeting or at the local coffee shop. Under the hood, the Edge 15 packs a powerful punch with up to the latest 4th generation Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processor, 8GB of DDR3L memory, choice of up to 1TB of HHD, hybrid SSHD storage with integrated 16GB NAND flash or up to 256GB SSD storage and Lenovo’s SHAREit software.
The Lenovo Edge 15 will be available beginning in October with models starting at $899 via Best Buy and www.lenovo.com.
