lenovo spec on ram memory. stop trying to sell product w/ 2G RAM. 4G ram is pretty std on notebooks !!!


stop selling product with 2G RAM. I don't even want to look at your ads as you are wasting customers time when you very well know 4G RAM is std with the I3, I5 & I7 processors. Lenovo is trying to be deceptive in its pricing of the product by doing this.

Review Lenovo Thinkpad T410s Notebook


Slim Fast. Intel's new developments haven't stopped for the 14.1

Excellent application performance; Touchscreen; Input Devices; Matte, comparably bright screen; Communication features; Docking Port

Virtually no accessories (not even a stylus); Black value, contrast, and illumination of the screen

The extremely good application performance, to which the SSD contributes significantly, and the relatively good and comprehensive communications features.

Review Lenovo Thinkpad T410 2522-3FG Notebook


Just an illusion? Lenovo updates its T-range's 14.1 inch models t

Proven Thinkpad design; Trackpoint; Keyboard; Very good office performance and up-to-date hardware; ThinkVantage tools

Not very bright display with a standard color range; Touchpad; No recovery DVDs or manual; Energy Manager offers unimplemented functions

Many manufacturers will by and by upgrade their business devices with cutting-edge technology (from Intel). All 14 inchers with a comparable configuration that have been optimized for business use can be considered.

Lenovo ThinkPad T410 2522


You have to hand it to Lenovo. While other vendors chase the latest laptop tastes and trends--Imprint finishes! Chrome edges! Brushed aluminum! A rainbow of color options!--Lenovo has kept the venerable ThinkPad's visage largely unchanged from the days...

Sturdy design; stellar keyboard; bright display; Core i5 processor delivers excellent application performance; outstanding battery life.

Pricey; a bit bulky and heavy; integrated graphics limit gaming.

It costs a bit more than competing models, but the Lenovo ThinkPad T410 2522 offers a modern Core i5-based configuration inside a typical, rock-solid ThinkPad design.

Lenovo ThinkPad T410s (Optimus)


The first business notebook with Nvidia Optimus graphics is the fastest laptop we've yet tested and can power three external displays at once.

With enough speed to be your primary computer for years to come, the ThinkPad T410s with Nvidia Optimus graphics and solid state drive raises the bar for mobile performance. And, if you can afford to attach three monitors simultaneously, this notebook...

Lenovo's Thoughtful ThinkPad Is a Near-Perfect Mac...


No laptop is completely perfect, but this ThinkPad comes awfully close.

A multiple record-breaker: Top performance and brightest screen among all laptops we've seen. Very slim and extremely lightweight. Rock-solid ThinkPad keyboard with well-thought-out controls. Love the textured touchpad. Sturdy as a granite pillar...

Battery life needs a serious boost. Expensive. No HDMI connector

Lenovo ThinkPad T410s Review


The Lenovo ThinkPad T410s is a refresh of the older T400s, adding the latest Intel Core i5 processors and optional NVIDIA switchable graphics. The T410s is a slimmed down version of the standard 14-inch T-series notebook, with a much thinner body. We...

Good design and great build quality ; Faster processor selections ; Optional switchable graphics and multi-touch LCD

Poor screen contrast ; Limited battery life

Lenovo ThinkPad T410s


This thin-and-light business notebook offers a sleeker design than its predecessors, but you'll pay more for the portability.

Like an aspiring younger brother, the Lenovo ThinkPad T410s is thinner and lighter than the T410, yet manages to perform nearly as well. However, a sub-4-pound machine that lasts only 4 hours on a charge doesn't seem worth the $260 premium (when...

Lenovo ThinkPad T410


The Lenovo ThinkPad T-series seems to be a case of "more of the same"--which isn't entirely a bad thing. In an era when system designs seem like ephemeral fashion statements and laptop PCs change color with each season, the basic black ThinkPad T410...

Classic T-Series keyboard ; Lots of ports, including FireWire and eSATA

LCD image quality subpar with video and games ; Mediocre audio playback quality

The T410 retains the legendary keyboard feel of ThinkPads, but also remains somewhat pricey.

Lenovo ThinkPad T410 Review


The ThinkPad T410 is the latest revision of the popular T-series ThinkPad from Lenovo. This model brings a new line of dedicated and integrated graphics cards, the Intel Core-series processor line, and a completely redesigned chassis. We took an...

Very fast ; Increased battery capacities ; Excellent port selection

Screen shows some distortion when flexing ; High pitched fan could be annoying

The full-redesigned Lenovo ThinkPad T410 offers quite a few enhancements over the previous generation T400, including less keyboard flex, an updated keyboard, a nicer touchpad, huge improvement in port selection, and better component access through the...

Lenovo ThinkPad T410


These days, many business users are willing to sacrifice performance in favor of the lightest laptop they can stuff in their bags. For the rest, a powerful business laptop can mean getting resource-intensive tasks done in a matter of minutes, instead...
