    As a more designer model in the line of computers known for their toughness, the Thinkpad Edge E520 does a great job finding that perfect balance of reliability, performance, durability, and design. While not the lightest laptop out there, it isn't that bad size-wise.

    Overall, it is a laptop that I would definitely recommend, and if not this model, at least one from the Thinkpad line.
