Review Lenovo Thinkpad W510 4319-29G Notebook

 

Workstation in 15 inches. When searching for an efficient laptop

Very good performance; Classic Thinkpad design; ThinkVantage tools; Comprehensive communication configuration; Good input devices

Temperature development; Short battery life; Performance loss in battery mode (high-performance profile)

The courage to stick to the tried and tested, and stay up-to-date in terms of technology, anyway.

Review Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 Notebook

 

Brilliant Prospects? Security, productivity but also multimedia i

Good input devices; Display lid and keyboard bezel of metal; Simple and stable design; Unobtrusive and cool

Keyboards yields strongly in two places and creaks; Average display, reflective in a few models; No UltraBay, no docking port

If the ThinkPad's design is too simple for you but you don't want to forgo on metal, you'll find Sony's Vaio BZ26. Smart spenders will be well-served with Acer's Extensa 5230E. A better graphic card and a more eye-catching design are found in the MacBook.

Lenovo ThinkPad W510

 

Sometimes size does matter. You'd never describe Lenovo's Thinkpad W510 as "thin and light." It's a bulky, heavy beast--a laptop with a 15.6-inch, LED backlit display that weighs as much as some 17-inch laptops. What you get with that bulk is a...

Auto color calibration for workstation graphics ; Excellent CPU performance for a laptop

Touch interface is wonky and difficult to use ; Surprisingly poor 3D performance

Lenovo's 15.4-inch workstation-class laptop offers excellent an CPU and a good display, but the Windows 7 touch interface and 3D performance aren't great.

Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 (2847-22U)

 

Sturdy, business-orientated machine ; Great keyboard and choice between touchpad and nub

Not suited for graphics-intensive work (or play) ; Lackluster style

The SL510 is an excellent choice for business users or students who don't goof around much.

Lenovo ThinkPad SL510

 

If you are a fan of Lenovo's classic ThinkPad design then the SL510 is the SMB laptop for you.

Multitouch trackpad. Comprehensive feature set.

On the heavy side. Resolution tops out at 1,366-by-768.

Without proceeding any further, I am about to make a guess: you have already decided whether or not you're buying a ThinkPad. The iconic brand, the unending combination of professional respect, solid features, and unabashed blandness, combine to make a...

Solid construction; matte 16x9 screen; flexible configurations and pricing.

Bland, boxy design; somewhat bulky frame.

Lenovo's Windows 7 upgrade to the ThinkPad SL500 keeps the price affordable, and features a consumer-friendly 16:9 display.

This sturdy and comfortable small business notebook performs well, and offers smart tools to protect your data.

The Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 is a solid notebook for business users. While it may be too bulky for road warriors (the 14-inch SL410 is a better choice for that crowd), this system is a good solution for workers looking for a sturdy laptop to use in and...
