Summary: I bought this laptop in a pinch, as the one that I was borrowing from a relative became unavailable to me, and I needed something right away. This looked like a good deal, particularly with the excellent reviews on here and on the seller's page.
Pros: Order was processed quickly. Laptop packaged well and delivered on time. Arrived in great condition, clean and without dings, scratches, or any other visible defects.
Cons: Most noticeable is boot time. Fresh, out-of-the-packaging boot took about 4 minutes.
Summary: Solid laptop but realized that 32 bit windows 7 pro was installed not 64 bit win 7 pro as described. For this reason I may return it, otherwise it is in good shape and hardware has functioned well so far.
Summary: Have had 3 of these go out with Fan Error in past 2 years at work. Update: Found out if you blow into the vents on side it removes the dust that is stopping the fan and causing the Fan Error. That is a quick solution but means you probably need to clean the dust out of the laptop.
Summary: I have been using Lenovo Thinkpads for the past 14 years and have always been super happy. This is also a good machine but has one major drawback - "improved" bumpy touchpad.... It is rather horrible - I don't know what they've been thinking....
BE WARNED....Nice product, but the company/service sucks!

Summary: Bought one online from a famous NYC electronics retailer and got a really good deal. I am a Mac guy, but I need a PC for work stuff and this Lenovo T410 Thinkpad replaced a 2004 model Dell that could not be upgraded to the new standards.
