Very powerful ; Cool and quiet under normal conditions ; Great battery life for a 15.4" notebook (5.25 hrs with dedicated graphics, almost 7 hours with integrated) ; Impressive switchable graphics, would you like gaming or battery life

ThinkPad with keyboard flex ; Screen could be brighter

Overall the Lenovo ThinkPad T500 is a fine notebook worthy of a spot on many office or dormroom tables, but it could have come closer to perfection if Lenovo didn't mess with the keyboard

REVIEW: Lenovo ThinkPad W500

 

The wholly-black W500 (356x255x35mm, 2.78kg) is a typical ThinkPad laptop in terms of build and appearance―some will love its retro and understated appearance while others will want to put it in a museum. I've been a ThinkPad user for years and I've...

At just over £2200 (ex. VAT) for a top-end specification, the ThinkPad W500’s asking price is steep. You also need to ask yourself whether you are going to use all its features. Having said that, the base model (£974 ex. VAT) is very appealing....
