Summary: Needed a reasonably priced pc to replace a pc turned door stopper for my collegiate daughter. Like the lenovo for being able to absorb daily abuse better than some. order/pickup all went as expected. two items of note - 1) it took a LONG time for me to find WIFI switch on front which caused some panic on my part. 2) Battery drains quickly - obviously original equip.
Summary: Bought to replace a motherboard burnout in another unit. Worked as promised. Mouse issues in Windows 7 and missing the Lenovo bells and whistles. Has the FN key issue too. Hated that when I got it. Just not a good idea.
Excellent "bang for the buck" as used. Watch out specs. Get LED-lit screen.

Summary: At the time of writing, June 2014, this laptop is still a tool that can do anything you may want from a computer, bar perhaps 3-D gaming. From browsing, and text editing to industrial designing this littly PC can do it all. A robust and durable piece of machinery too, it will outlast many cheaper offerings, even if newer. The reason behind my 4/5 rating and not 5/5 is that "T400" isn't actually a specific computer but rather a whole family of computers.
would be great even for twice the amount I paid for it.

Summary: mine came with a 64gb ssd, making this a very snappy laptop. Came with windows 7 pro 64 bit. expanded the memory to 6gb. Very well built laptop. solid feel to it. Good battery life. must have been ahead of its time when built. Runs windows 8 pro 64 bit with no problems. Lenovo has all the drivers needed for windows xp to windows 8.1.
Summary: Was looking for a inexpensive laptop with Windows 7 on it. I needed an extra in case my other one went down. I did buy a new one, but Windows 8 was a total nightmare and most of my programs would not work. i called MS trying to get it to work, and she said that for example MS Office would have to be an annual charge to work on Windows 8. I told her that was extortion and she sort of agreed. Needless to say I sent the other one back. I hope Tim gets the message.
