Lenovo ThinkPad T420 Review: Kickin' It Old School
21 February 2012
Excerpt: And as if to remind me of it, a Lenovo ThinkPad T420 suddenly appeared at my doorstep. Okay, that’s exaggerating a bit - I did know it was coming - but the timing of receiving an old-school laptop couldn't have been better. Not only because I wanted to take a closer look at a laptop purposely designed to not be thin, but also because we haven’t had a ThinkPad T series for review in, well, forever.
Conclusion: For past ThinkPad T-series owners looking to return to the fold, as well as current owners looking for a newer model, the new ThinkPad T420 is an easy decision. In the model we looked at, it delivers cracking performance, and even some 3D abilities, in a time-tested platform. For business buyers and demanding consumers who want a no-nonsense workhorse they can carry, it doesn’t get much better.
Conclusion: Finally, the first certified Eco-Friendly laptop is here. Thinkpad T420 has been certified Sustainable Product Certification (SPC) Gold, by UL Environment. This laptop comes with multiple eco-friendly components, like low power halogen lamps, and recycled plastic for manufacturing the body. Powered by the latest Intel Core i5 processor, this machine is good for students and those professionals who use their laptops for atleast 10 hours a day.
Summary: With its epic battery life, awesome keyboard, solid sound, durable design, and high-res screen, the ThinkPad T420 offers nearly everything you'd want in a 14-inch business system for a good price. If you're looking for something a bit lighter, consider the ThinkPad T420s, which weighs 1.2 pounds less but lasts half as long on a charge. However, if you want the ultimate thin-and-light productivity powerhouse, the ThinkPad T420 should be at the top of your list.
Summary: An invariable constant. The tried and tested Thinkpad design has practically remained untouched on the outside. But from now on, the new Sandy Bridge hardware does its job inside the T420. Moreover, the compact office laptop boasts with an excellent communication configuration for the professional field.

Test: Lenovo ThinkPad T420 - práce na prvním místě
8 November 2014
Summary: I přes počáteční despekt kvůli přechodu na displej s poměrem stran 16:9, který asi mnoho pracujících lidí nepotěší (ale nemají na výběr, přešli už všichni výrobci), mohu tento notebook doporučit jako pracovní nástroj pro náročné. Jde o vyvážený notebook nabízející výkon, mobilitu, ergonomii i korporátní technologie. Velkou zásluhu na dobrém dojmu z používání mají tichý provoz a především výborná klávesnice s trackpointem.
Pros: tichý provoz i v zátěži, špičková klávesnice s trackpointem, až na pozorovací úhly velmi dobrý displej
Cons: nevhodně umístěné tlačítko optické mechaniky, hlučný pevný disk
