  • Review is simply a regurgitation of facts. Not useful in any sense to anyone who can just drop by Lenovo’s website to gather data specs. You should consider posting more relevant information such as how the keyboard feels, screen quality, finish and construction, etc. Also the E520 apparently is using plastic hinges, not metal.

    Thanks for giving out the specifications, but I’ll look elsewhere if I actually want a review.

  • I purchased a lenovo E520 the end of April. It arrived mid-May. By June 10–not even 2 weeks after purchase quite a few of the keys on the keyboard stopped working. I’m talking the 9,0,I, O, L, period and I think a few others I can’t think of at the moment. The keyboard isn’t as responsive as the R61 that I had prior to this one. I much prefer the R61 over the E520. I purchased via the lenovo site. I called about the keyboard and was told a new keyboard would be sent in the next 2 days. Later that day, I received an email stating the part is on back order. I”M STILL WAITING ON IT! The new laptop I paid money for is useless for my work because so many of the keys do not work correctly. I’m back on my 3y/o laptop which is a serious inconvenience. I would NEVER buy the E520 again.

  • Oh sorry to hear that, you really had bad luck, I never encounter such a problem.

  • That Lenovo E520 is a complete mystery to me.
    While it is -now- available online for about 600,- € in Germany, with i5-2410,4GB,And Radeon 6630, also Win7 HP 64, which is a nearly unbeatable offer, including the anti-glare-display, there is no serious review, or test available anywhere, though the NB seems to exist since April or May (at higher prices).
    Some say it is a topseller at Amazon, but that isn’t true. You find only one review in US Amazon, none in Germany, France, UK…You even can’t buy it at Amazon Germany.
    I wonder why this incredibly priced NB isn’t mentioned anywhere. Technical problems ?
    I for myself would need a review of the display, because I know the Lenovo B560 series where the displays are not exactly what I understand as decent displays, they are IMO nearly crap.
    I am accustomed to Dell Latutude and Precision displays, and I would prefer Dell products over Lenovo, but a Dell NB comparable with the Lenovo E520 would cost about 1000 € or more, alone to reach the graphics card’s level. So…can anyone lift the secret of the thinkpad E520 ?

  • I recently bought an E520 form TigerDirect. Love the keyboard response. I downloaded & processed some videos, no problem, but I evidently Did ‘something’ to cause the Expresscard to Not be recognized any longer. Bummer, because That’s the way I Firewired To the workstation.
