Excerpt: I am writing this on my Lenovo T400- I bought this because it came with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 and I are not a match. The laptop is very sturdy and it came with easy instructions to activate the Windows 7 operating system. One interesting item is there is a touch pad and little red toggle for alternate use. I use them both. My only complaint is it's seems kind of heavy compared to other laptops, I have had but contributes to the sturdy feeling.
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.
