    Lenovo OneLink Technology

    Get more from your power cable! OneLink technology is a unique interface that simplifies connectivity through a single cable to the ThinkPad OneLink Dock. The OneLink dock provides dedicated video, USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and audio — all while charging your notebook.

    Award-Winning Keyboard Further Enhanced for Windows 8

    Full-sized and spill-resistant, the legendary ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard is renowned for its full array of keys, excellent feel, and TrackPoint® pointing device. And now it's optimized for Windows 8 with convenient multimedia buttons, function-lock capability, and immediate access to view apps. Plus, a larger TrackPad can be configured multiple ways through Settings.

    Plenty of Storage

    With up to 1TB HDD or a hybrid HDD with an 8GB cache and 500GB storage, you’ll never run out of space for your important files.

    Responsive Performance

    With up to 16GB of memory, you can run multiple high-end software applications without stalling your PC.

    Dolby® Speakers With Advanced Audio™

    Enjoy an immersive surround sound experience whether listening to a presentation or kicking back with a movie. This technology increases audio clarity for VOIP applications, maximizes volume output without distortion, and improves dialogue clarity when watching videos.

    AMD Platform with Enhanced Graphics

    - Price: Really good value for money specs wize. I brought a pretty much fully loaded laptop (i7, 500gb ssgd, 2GB amd radeon gc)
    - Speakers: very clear and the volume is superb.
    - SSHD means boot time is very fast
    - No lights for caps lock, num lock, scroll lock.
    - Screen brightness isn't great
    - Battery life isn't 7 hours without an unusable screen brightness.
    - Foolishly I attempted to login using a Microsoft account. This is annoying and I wish I had known all you have to do is say you don't have one and then you can click sign in without one (underneath the registration form).

    Full HD display for less than £400.

    Excellent keyboard.
    Upgrade to SSD is too expensive.

    No CAPS lock indicator.

    Good amount of RAM, keyboard feels good to use.
    Hard disk is slow (I've since swapped it for a SSD). Screen doesn't have great contrast. I generally don't like number pads on laptop keyboards (although they all seem to have it these days). HDPI screens aren't supported very well in Windows.

    Simple uncluttered design. Thinkpad build quality. I chose the 1920x1080 screen which is crisp & clear.
    Came pre-installed with Windows 8.1 which I am not a big fan of. Would have liked an OS disk as opposed to the recovery system (although most manufacturers are doing this now)

    Excellent keyboard with dedicated numerical pad area, great performance and screen. Solid construction
    Quite heavy. Not many purchase configuration options. To much "bloatware" preinstalled

    ThinkPad E555Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the E555

    1. Dave asked on
      I'm trying to find some more information on the AMD Radeon R7 2GB graphics card but from what I can see that is just the series of cards and not an actual model e.g. R7 240 or R7 260X. Can anybody tell me what the actual card in the E550 is please?
      1. Andrew replied on
        Believe you'll find it's as M265X with 2GB of dedicated video memory (Check recent review on Tech Radar)
    2. ahmad asked on
      i want to buy a laptop but i'm puzzled between two devices
      lenovo thinkpad edge e550 and e540
      which laptop should i buy ??
      1. Kas replied on
        Thinkpad e540 is discontinued
        E550 should be the definite choice - if you dont need loads of HD storage try the SSD version.
        It will surprise you
      2. Colin replied on
        I had the E540 but it was stolen, I replaced it with the E550 and it is just as good, if not better, than my original laptop
    3. Josh asked on
      Will the laptop support duel external screens at 1080p resolution using the VGA and HDMI ports, or does it require the optional extra graphics card?
      1. Anthony replied on
        It does support dual screens
    4. Dmitry asked on
      I am not a big fan of Windows 8.1. Does it even make sense to buy Windows 8.1 without touchable display, which does not come with E550?
      1. Simon replied on
        It can be a bit frustrating, the way the system is set up but once you find your way round things it's fine. You may wish to wait a while as windows 10 is round the corner.
        So, it depends what you need the machine for and how quickly you need it.
        Hope that helps.
    5. Sam asked on
      Does it come with backlight keyboard as standard as the features says it is an option but i cant seem to customize it to have it?
      1. Richard replied on

        I didnt configure any keyboard related options, and my keyboard does not have a backlight. I have noticed a number of discussions on different boards which seems to indicate only a very small number of specific builds E550 have the backlit keyboard, but there is no option in the customization feature to add it. Hopeless.
      2. Colette replied on
        Yes I agree, no option to backlight it is not standard
    6. Rob asked on
      What's the screen like? I bought a Lenovo laptop recently but the screen was so bad I had to take it back. It was a TFT monitor.

      Is this screen any good?
      1. Richard replied on
        It depends what you mean by good. It is not too shiny,it has full HD. Older applications that were not really designed for this kind of resolution do look pretty ropey but that is just par for the course. It's OK.
      2. Colette replied on
        I think the screen is fine.
      3. Dr replied on
        Screen is OK for everyday work though I cracked my screen yesterday after I closed the lid with a headphone piece on the keyboard.
    7. Chinedu asked on
      I like to know if this laptop can run on linux?
      And if it is a perfect machine for high computation like CFD simulations.
      1. Colette replied on
        This will run Linux but no way will it cope with CFD simulations.
      2. Gideon replied on
        I have not tried running Linux on my Thinkpad E550 but I expect it to run it satisfactorily.

        Well, for CFD simulations, I have not tried that on my laptop as well but I'm aware that it runs OK on laptops with specs: Core i7 2.7GHz (4 cores) processors and 16GB of RAM plus SSD storage.
