Lenovo brings touch to the ThinkPad Edge range (hands-on)

We're here at CES with a first hands-on look at Lenovo's new ThinkPad Edge E431. Like the Edges of the past it's an attractive machine, but unlike earlier models it comes with a 10-point multitouch 14-inch 1600 x 900 display. Apart from the new touchscreen, this is the exact same Edge it's always been — fantastic keyboard, flimsy trackpad, trademark red trackpoint. The prototype model we looked at had a Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM, but the final product will be configurable with Core i7 processors and up to 16GB of RAM. There's also a bigger brother to the E431, the E531, which comes with a larger 15-inch full HD display. Both models will be available this May starting from $539.
