Lenovo ThinkPad T420 review: Lenovo ThinkPad T420

 

Lenovo ThinkPad T420

The ; has several things going for it: performance, plenty of ports, excellent battery life, and a very comfortable keyboard.

The design of the bulky, business-oriented T420 is positively Stone Age. It's also priced well above similar consumer laptops. No HDMI, no USB 3.0.

The Lenovo ThinkPad T420 is as straight-up and unassuming as a business laptop can be on the surface, souped up with faster performance, long battery life, and a flexible selection of ports under the hood.

Lenovo ThinkPad T420 Review: The Best Business Laptop?

 

The 14-inch ThinkPad T420 business notebook has an excellent screen, keyboard, and battery life. We explain why this "business rugged" notebook is a great choice for hard-working customers.

Good build quality ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad/touchpad ; High-resolution 900p anti-glare screen ; 10 hours of battery life!

Weak speakers ; Design might not appeal to all ; Bottom line, the ThinkPad T420 is an excellent choice for business, home, and student use.

Lenovo ThinkPad T420 Review: Kickin' It Old School

Lenovo ThinkPad T420

 

Change comes slowly to the venerable ThinkPad T series, but when it does, it's usually worth waiting for. The Lenovo ThinkPad T420—the bread and butter of the ThinkPad line—may look the same as the T410 it replaces, but important changes under the hood...

Strong performance ; Excellent battery life ; Business-rugged ThinkPad architecture ; Unique videoconferencing features

Bland styling ; Small touch pad ; No Blu-ray option or USB 3.0 ports ; Low-res Webcam

With Sandy Bridge-grade speed, great battery life, durability features, and other goodies, the ThinkPad T420 is arguably today's best business thin-and-light. (But yes, it’s still basic black.)

Lenovo ThinkPad T420 review: A 14in business laptop with 2nd Gen Intel Core technology and great features

Good build quality, good user comfort, good performance
