Summary: I've been using this laptop for over two years. So far it's been bulletproof. It was very fast when I first got it. It's slowing down a bit now, which means it's time for me to back up all my data and reinstall the OS. All the junk I've installed on it over the years has slowed it down quite a bit. In my office I have two large Dell monitors. This laptop powers the two displays just fine.
Summary: I saw some negative reviews about this laptop and decided to give my opinions. There are 16 of us were issued this laptop by the company and they all worked fine for the last two years. None of us ever had any problems with the it. the only cons is it's super slow to restart. I think that's because I don't restart the machine very often.
I LIKE THIS LAPTOP . BUY IT IF DECENT KEYBOARD IS IMPORTANT TO YOU
1 March 2014
Summary: I have been an owner of this laptop for 3 months so I cannot judge its long term reliability. I had purchased a cheaper HP model with windows 8 on it and touch screen. I returned it because i did not like the feel of the keyboard and the mouse.I could not find a nice laptop with decent keyboard in stores so I took a risk and ordered thinkpad t420s.
Summary: The T420 is a okay laptop. Although I'm not a fan of the 16:9 ratio screen. The screen resolution is a bit on the poor side. It shares its siblings durable build quality however. My unit came with 8gb of RAM and a i5 processor. Its 320 gb hard drive can be replaced with a SSD and like all T series systems you can remove the DVD drive and replace it with another drive. This is a decent machine if you don't mind the ratio and the sub par secreen resolution.
Summary: The T420s, like all ThinkPads are identical to it's product line but the 'S' edition being a slimmer version of the 420. That being the case, I'm extremely happy with having bought the 420S and not the 420 because it makes a marginal difference to a person that requires a portable machine with a long lasting machine. I recommend buying an SSD and swapping out the DVD drive with it. There are plenty of drive bays available on eBay.
Summary: I got to say that this notebook is a hit with me - a former mac lover. For my work. I basically require a desk-top / lap-top solution as it is my main pc, but I need to travel frequently. It is a bit on the heavy side, but this is forgiven as it's built to withstand a lot of abuse! Pros - The cool hinges, the screen light, the matt finish, the screen, and the usb (yellow) on hinge spine which can be used while computer is closed - this has been a life-saver at airports,...
Excerpt: "...I liked this very much Lenovo has always been considered to be the best maufacturer of Business Class Laptop Notebooks and Lenovo ThinkPad T420 is another masterpiece by them. The looks are just the normal business looks and nothing much really that stands out. But the design and colour are sober with the silver colour logo of Lenovo makes it a glow. There's nothing much different between the thinkpad series laptops and notebooks as far as the looks ...
Pros: Battery backup, Configuration
Cons: NUM pad absent, Colour options not available
