Great buy after the initial problems were worked through

Summary: I noticed the yellow DC power plug was loose in the case, so I took to fully disassembled and clean the machine using Lenovo's instructions on their website, as these are very serviceable machines. After an extensive cleaning using a tooth brush on the fan, ports, and vents, I reassembled the machine. Still no dice.
Pros: Great laptop once I got it fixed. Metropc was GREAT at getting me a replacement. I called them up, spoke with a gentleman, and received the parts next day (UPS 1-day delivery window).
Cons: I received the laptop on in the box. It would not shut down using the power button. Afterword, it wouldn't turn on. I noticed the microphone mute button would light when I tried pressing the power button.
Summary: My unit arrived with an external USB memory card reader. The blank 34/54mm port where an expansion or dummy card should be was empty. Luckily this was a less than $10 fix and added 2 USB ports to my machine.
Pros: 11/17/13. I rate myself as average tech, because I am not a technician fulltime. I work in another field, but I manage about 25 business websites and build about a computer a month for friends or clients.
Cons: This video port is not HDMI, you need a $5 adapter. Not a big deal.
Lenovo T410 Delivers Great Performance and Reliability
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Lenovo T410 is not the cheapest laptop available, at least not given its modest but still very much respectable specs. The unit I bought has an Intel Core i5 processor, 2 GB RAM (bought memory upgrade of 8GB for $90) and a built in camera as well as a 320GB hard drive. The laptop runs WIndows 7 very well and multitasks better, performing slightly faster than our other Core-2-Duo based machines.
Excerpt: I own both Mac (2001 ibook, 2007 macbook) and Windows (2007 Thinkpad X60) systems. I was looking for a more powerful workhorse for crunching some heavy datasets - the X60 just isn't cut out for heavy duty stuff. Initially I was looking at the Macbook Pro, but eventually I settled for the T410. For the price and specs, it is definitely value for money. 250GB HDD, 4GB memory, four-core i7 processor.
Excerpt: I have been using Lenovo from last 5 years since our employer gave us for professional use. Specific to T410 I am using it from last 6 months. Very handy and strong. I shut it down once in a while and i usually do rough use, my be since I did not have paid for this. The best feature is the track point. The only problem I think is weight is little more. If you like heavy duty and high performance laptop..the this is for you.
The Windows Lenovo laptop is a great, affordable choice!

Excerpt: The laptop works great! Its a little bit big but its worth it. The only thing I would change is its battery life. It seems that if you leave it unplugged then it will die in a few minutes.. Still my top choice! Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Excerpt: Upon purchasing the Lenovo ThinkPad T410, I was honestly a little skeptical. After being an avid Mac user, I was hesitant to buy a PC once again. After a little research, I was willing to give Lenovo a try. I am completely happy with my purchase, as the T410 has a nice screen size, processing power, and enough memory space to make any notebook user happy.
