Bottom Line

The Lenovo ThinkPad 11E is a great ultraportable laptop that offers good bang for your buck. At under $300 and with hassle-free Linux installation the 11E is a winner for users on a budget or for Linux enthusiasts.

The Lenovo ThinkPad 11E is a bestselling 11.6-inch laptop that has been praised for its budget friendly price, its solid state drive and for its sturdy Lenovo build quality. With its small 11.6-inch display and 5-6 hours of battery life, the ThinkPad 11E is a great companion for travellers on a tight budget. The Intel Quad Core Celeron processor and 4GB of DDR3 RAM won’t be winning any races, but they will cope with everyday tasks with ease. While many of its competitors offer slow 5400rpm mechanical hard drives or smaller 32GB or 64GB eMMC flash memory storage drives, the 11E boasts a 128GB SSD. The solid state drive offers lightning fast Windows boot and app loading times, but it does offer limited storage space for users who would like to store media.
