The ThinkPad Edge E530 3259-78U 15.6" Notebook Computer (Matte Black) from Lenovo takes the no-nonsense, business-oriented side of Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks and adds a touch of personality for customer-facing roles in small- to medium-sized businesses.

The 15.6" widescreen display features LED lamps, which brighten faster, use less power and provide better image quality than their CCFL counterparts.

The anti-glare coating allows you to use this Lenovo notebook in bright rooms or outdoors in the sunlight.

The system is powered by a dual-core 2.3GHz Intel Core i3-2350M processor. It also has 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 320GB 7200rpm hard drive, a SuperMulti DVD burner, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, an integrated 720p HD webcam and digital microphone as well as built-in stereo speakers. Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) is the installed operating system.

      Comments about Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 3259-78U 15.6" Notebook Computer (Matte Black):

      I bought the E530 because I wanted a reasonably priced laptop that worked with a docking station and that had Intel Core technology and came loaded with Windows 7 64 bit. This is my second Thinkpad and even though priced at the low end of the Thinkpad range, it fit the bill and is an awesome laptop.

        Comments about Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 3259-78U 15.6" Notebook Computer (Matte Black):

        This computer is used in a medical office with electronic health records and is linked to permit evaluation of imaging and integrated directly with clinical instrumentation. The computer is very fast and the updated closure mechanism is much better than the old mechanism on the lenovo T61 laptop it replaced. I would highly recommend. B&H is a great vendor to work with!
