For users willing to buy a compact laptop for a very appealing price, and especially for those who move around with your laptop often, the Lenovo ThinkPad 11e can be a good choice, as it checks all the boxes for portability, good value for money, and decent overall performance.
Before we get into the specs of this machine, its important to know that there within the Lenovo ThinkPad 11e models, there are some different hardware specs, depending on the specific model and its date of release. There are some powered by AMD processors, while there version evaluated here has the Intel N2940 processor.
This laptop has an excellent battery life, with up to 6.6 hours of work autonomy without needing to plug it, which combined with its 11.6 anti glare display with HD resolution make of this laptop an ideal tool for students, as you will be able to carry it wherever you go and manage your college or university projects without being constantly dependent of an electric plug.

It’s accessible price and its mobility profile definitely build an attractive profile if you are a student. It is also powered by a solid state drive with 128GB, which let’s you access your data faster than the usual hard drive disks.
Lenovo ThinkPad 11e: Cons
One downside that I noticed on this laptop, which is very frequent in laptops in this laptop 2016, is the RAM capacity, with just 4GB of RAM, this laptop performance is not optimal. You can upgrade the RAM (max 8GB for the N2940 processor), which is a rather inexpensive investment, and I strongly recommend upgrading the RAM on this laptop to reach optimal results. For it’s dimensions, this laptop weight of 4.9 pounds could be lower.
