Lenovo ThinkPad SL410 Review


Lenovo ThinkPad series notebooks have been the leader of business laptop filed. The latest released ThinkPad SL410/SL510 notebooks have not many changes in the appearance, not subversive product design either. Yes, but as always, it is still the solid...

Finally, take a look at this ThinkPad SL410 battery design. We find it particularly easy to remove the battery; unlike some notebooks, it may take a big effort to remove battery. Buckle is set above the battery itself, using a single buckle in the...

Cheaply Impressed


After purchasing this product for set up and use by a church, I was highly impressed at the quality and performance of this unit. Even though the hard drive is smaller by today's standards, the computer is versatile enough with its plethora of jacks...

Great Deal!


I bought this laptop for my 7th grader for homeschooling. It looks and runs like new. It's better than my laptop--I should have kept it for myself ;)

Bought this to replace my 12 yearold G A T E W A Y. Amazing laptop for an amazing price. Know that notebook did not come with any software so if, for whatever reason, you need to reinstall operating systen you will need to purchase your own.

good machines on the 2nd round


for $38 add the 8gb and these things rock!!

Light wieght solid thinkpad construction ; Screen is way ahead of it's time in brightness and contrast ratio. Battery life is good

First batch I ordered were scratched and dinged up like they were from neighborhood pawn shop. New egg replaced them with grade A units. Whole process took 17 days and was frustrating, but now they are shinning in a repair shop environment working all...

Great Laptop


Love this laptop. Great ThinkPad keybaord. Eraserhead or "TouchPoint" is so useful because you don't have to keep swiping your finger to move across page. The touchpad is one of the best I have used as well. Upgrading to 8 GB Ram is around $50. Solid...

Not an i3 or i5 but runs cool and fast

Great laptop, at any price!


I added 2GB of G.Skill RAM before first power-on. Very easy to do.

This is a great laptop for the price, this would be a great laptop even if it cost much more. Durable build, nice quality feel to keyboard, buttons, screen hinges. I love the trackpad, mousepad area. Not too much bloatware and the ThinkVantage...

Could weigh a touch less. Would like to have a little more resolution, but this may be common for all 14" screens. Might have rather had a non-glossy screen, but it does look nice in all but high glare situations. Case does show fingerprints. ...

Add an additional 2gb ram and make sure Win 7 pro 64-bit for full utilization of the laptops capability.

I bought this laptop 11 months ago now, just after i started my new job. I use this laptop for both work and personal use and I love it. Core 2 Duo @ 2.2Ghz, 4gb 1066mhz ram after adding a kingston 2gb, the hard drive is slower than i want because i...

5400 rpm hard drive - not really a con for the price but 7200 rpm is my standard because I game
