Summary: Pretty good laptop, does what I need it to do which is play HD video from my HD camcorder. There are better laptops out there, but for more than I want to pay. Wish it had a built in webcam but oh well. Nice screen, solid build.
Summary: This is Not a Thinkpad nothing on this laptop can be called a Thinkpad only the red Track-point....But is low cost and Good very solid built..This is the Fastest lappy in JR for under $523.00 including all those Refurb. Outdated Lappy plus those NEW single core netbooks/notbooks without a CD/DVD-RW.
Excerpt: In my dormitory,there are two other laptops,atter they run for a long time,i can feel its heat on the keyboard,though it is not so hot,that feeling is not comfortable,my sl400 never has that problem,whenever i put my hands on the keyboard,i can not feel any heat,even though it has ran for a whole day. I think this is a main reason that Thinkpad can be so popular. Having a Thinkpad,i think what you get is not only a laptop,it is a lifestyle!
Summary: The laptop is great. It has every port you need and it has it in abundance. It even has an HDMI port. Upgrade the RAM to the ones I listed above to get 3GB RAM at 800MHz speed in 32bit or get 4GB at 800MHz in 64bit setup. The hard drive is the downfall of this computer thought, so I recommend upgrading to 7200rpm SATA150/300 or even the new Solid State drives that are slowly becoming resonable.
