Lenovo ThinkPad L440 20AT004QGE Notebook Review Update

 

Beefed up. The L-series is the affordable entry into the world of ThinkPads. It offers typing comfort, many interfaces including a docking port, and a rigid, timeless chassis. Lenovo now ships the classic with an SSD and HD+ screen. Will that make the...

Very good CPU performance, Swift SSD, Long battery life, Solid build, HD+ resolution for more overview, Very good keyboard, Low waste heat

One USB 3.0 port only, Screen's low viewing angle stability, Screen's low contrast

Lenovo beefs up its ThinkPad L440 version 20AT004QGE with an HD+ screen and SSD. However, that does not turn it into an affordable high-end laptop for professionals. The contrast of 200:1 is lousy and the DeltaE color shifts are still much too high....

pretty darned good

 

I've only got one minor complaint so far, and that is that you are unable to deactivate the touchpad. I tried going through tech support and it would cost me extra despite having a full wty to get it worked on and I use a mouse at all times,...

Two severe hardware issues within 1.5 years

 

The first hardware issue was with the fan, less than a year in. Lenovo's warranty service worked extremely smoothly and I was very pleased with their customer service.\n\nUnfortunately it's been another 6 months (now out of warranty) and the...

Great little machine

 

I bought this like 15 days before so can make out the best of it. The machine is fast and light. The only thing that I noticed is that there is little noise that come up sometimes due to hard-disk spinning but it does not matter much to me as I will...

Best for levels of security

 

Best option for this laptop is the: trusted platform module. Second best option: availability of disk drives.\n\nMissing features: no internal blu-ray option, no secondary front battery option, *missing* panel on left (towards front) of laptop...

Built like the old Thinkpads

 

This is like the machine I have come to expect from Lenovo unlike the G model I purchased last year. This one is solid, fast, efficient and windows 7 is still the best system to use.

Seems Buggy and Slow

 

Going on a couple months now and I'm disappointed in my purchase. I code and run some scripting programs through this machine and it's slow, seems buggy, freezes often under normal operating conditions, and was shipped with a ton of bloat-ware (IBM's...

PERFECT

 

This laptop is perfect, I have the i7 model with 16gb of ram. I used a brand new T440 for work which got stolen at the airport. I needed a new laptop but i couldn't drop $1400. I bought this and its the same thing, although the materials are a little...
