£250 Lenovo E335 laptop: check out the cheapest ThinkPad on the market

It doesn’t run on Windows 8 (but Windows 7 Pro instead) and is powered by a slow AMD E2-1800M processor (clocked at 1.7GHz, with 1MB cache and two cores) so why would this Lenovo E335 be on anyone’s list?

Well, for a start, this is a ThinkPad, one of the most sought-after and highly regarded brands in the computer industry. Then, there’s the fact that it costs a mere £249 from eBay on Saveonlaptops (after a £50 cashback from Lenovo until the end of this month), which is less than what you’d fork out for a netbook.

Other features include a 13in 1,366 x 768 pixels, 4GB of RAM, a massive 500GB hard disk drive, Microsoft Windows 7 Pro, GbE, an integrated AMD Radeon HD 7340M, a webcam, a card player, Bluetooth 4.0, VGA/HDMI and up to eight hour battery life.

Then there’s everything that’s not part of the spec list like a full size spill resistant keyboard, a keystroke noise suppression technology, a weight of only 1.74Kg and three USB ports.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
