Summary: Bluescreen of Death pops up as much as 3 times per week. We have lots of these around the office and techs run around fixing them all the time. You can loose all your work if you don't back up often.
Summary: I bought this laptop 4(ish) years ago as a basic yet speedy laptop for college. It has served me over the years since with no complications beyond the battery (the battery is completely shot, I just plug it in all the time). I am not a gamer, nor do I download tons of movies onto my hard-drive.
Great work horse laptop for the business traveller
7 April 2013
Summary: My favorite laptop for travel, great wireless, built in webcam, not too big and not too small; perfect travel companion if you want to watch movies, check email, and work on spreadsheets, wordprocessing, etc.
Summary: Pros: Intel processor, screen size, Thinkpad line, okay cooling, adequate graphics Cons: First of all, my unit came with Windows 7 X64 pro on it, not exactly the same as this one -"Ctrl" key is NOT the left most one on the bottom row, for someone who uses keyboard shortcuts, it's a nightmare to...
Summary: Got mine from friend, he has upgraded it to 3gb of ram - and i am sure that does make a bit of difference performance wise. Very sturdy work laptop i carry in a backpack without any protective cover almost everyday everywhere, harddrive has not failed yet - even though the laptop suffers shaking...
Summary: I purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad SL410 that came with Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) installed on it. It was easy to upgrade the RAM (Memory) from 2GB to 8GB for $50. The connection Ports, Support, Features and speed of this laptop was impressive. Highly recommend this laptop.
Summary: After purchasing this laptop, I learned that was it just a glorified consumer version and did not have the same quality as the commercial versions of the thinkpad series. As a result, one of the speakers is not working and the battery is only charging to half of its capacity after about one year.
Summary: The SL 410 is an OK laptop but for some strange reason it is advertised as a Win XP Pro when it has a Win7 64 bit OS. Also, it has the old Centrino chip; which, if I'd known, I probably wouldn't purchase. However, I can't complain too much because the price made it a reasonably good gamble.
Summary: This laptop is a disaster, don't buy anything from Lenovo. This is my 2nd lenovo and I have had to send it back to the factory 3 in a span of 6 months to get something or the other fixed. Their repair is painfully slow and support is horrible.
