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.
