Review Lenovo Thinkpad L412 Notebook


A Unique Specimen.The L-series is a brand-new addition to the Len

Well-designed Thinkpad work area; User-friendly input devices; Thinvantage software; Display suitable for outdoor use; Low noise and heat emissions; Usable battery life

Small weak spots around case; Positioning of ports around device; Many purchase configurations not yet available in Europe; Basic 12 month warranty; Limited performance

The Intel Core i3-330M and GMA HD Graphics in combination: a bit more power on tap would have been nice.

Lenovo ThinkPad L412 review


The professional-looking Lenovo ThinkPad L412 has a decent screen and speakers, and its low starting price makes it an ideal choice for the eco-conscious businessperson.

The Lenovo ThinkPad L412's only real drawback appears to be the keyboard, which is so loud that you should really think twice about toting this laptop to conferences and meetings. Other than that annoyance, however, the L412 delivers- it's quick,...
