Lenovo ThinkPad T550 Notebook Review


Two are better than one. Lenovo's business newcomer features two batteries rather than one. That enables a battery life that makes the contenders green with envy in view of its powerful hardware. An LTE modem ensures the required flexibility, data is...

Light, Stiff, good build, Quiet, cool, Very good keyboard, Touchpad can be configured in detail, Fast enough for every Office suite, Decent connectivity, Extensive security package, LTE, GPS, Economic, extreme battery life

Some parts susceptible for fingerprints, Lid cannot be opened with one hand, No maintenance cover, Mediocre TN screen, CPU throttling, Installation media has to be purchased separately

In total, the T550 mostly fulfills the high claim of the T lineup and justifies its price. We are dealing with a relatively lightweight, robust and well-built even if maintenance-unfriendly business laptop that convinces with quiet and cool operation....

Lenovo ThinkPad T550 review


Lenovo offers a business laptop at a budget price

Battery life ; 3K display ; speed

Off-center TrackPad ; weight ; design

The T550 is a phenomenal hedge bet. It provides just enough business performance at an awesome price. Just don't expect anything groundbreaking here.

Lenovo ThinkPad T550 laptop


Occasionally, reviewers are sent versions of notebooks that don't really show off the best that the manufacturer has to offer. The Lenovo ThinkPad T550 is one such example, with the basic spec that was sent to us being merely a curtain raiser for what...

Good everyday work computer ; Keyboard and touchpad ; Customisable configuration

The non-IPS Full HD screen looks pale and requires regular tilting ; SSD is not standard, but there is an SSD cache for the hard drive options

Very happy with the laptop


I had my T510 for FIVE years, and it's still going strong. I had a Lenovo laptop before that, and I have a Lenovo tablet. I love them all, so I write this review with an obvious bias. That said, this laptop (T550) has met or exceeded all my expections....

Satisfying T-series


Configured with SSD, 3k display (beautiful!), plenty of RAM. Fairly lightweight but a good business laptop. Upgrading from a T520 which stood up to years of heavy use (programming).\n\nPointing stick is the best available that I know of, and unlike...

Absolutely worthless


I have a brand new t550 that worked this morning and won't start this afternoon. It was shutdown in between and not even moved from the desk. Hard reset isn't even working. I'm out of town on a business trip and I can't get anything done.

Very Impressed


T550 mouse pad / track is much improved over the T540. Go with the high definition screen you will not be happy with the lower definition version. Get it with the SSD drive and 8 GB of RAM and you will be satisfied for years to come.
