Summary: I'm a writer and college student who has been using lenovo machines for the past 4.5 years. There's a reason for this. High build quality, dependability and the knowledge that no matter what happens it will not break explain why I have always gravitated toward the lenovo laptop line essentially since the beginning. The machine i recieved was in like new condition.
Summary: The Thinkpad T500 is a modern version of the T61 series, and positions itself once again as professional all-round notebook with extensive communication features and good mobility. An important change was the new Intel Express 45 chip set, which comes with new features like the Intel Centrino 2 processor, high performance communication modules (WLAN, UMTS,…), and as a highlight of the T500 series a function to switch between integrated and dedicated graphics card.
Lenovo Thinkpad is a mix of great value and great performance!

Summary: I purchased the T500 as a replacement to my T61, which had gone down when the cooling fan died. I'd found a replacement fan assembly and planned to replace the damaged component, but I also was interested in getting a newer system that utilized the less expensive DDR3 RAM. What I like about the T500 is the larger display and the additional expansion. On the smaller T400, SD and Memory Card expansion occupies the Express/PCMCIA bays.
Great value, durable medium duty all purpose machine.

Summary: Researching I discovered this laptop is fantastic for everyday use as well as some heavy duty applications in the field. Factory plc etc. Built to last and perform. Not a gaming pc but a great all around surfing machine and application machine. Built to take some abuse. Dont think that because this is an older model it can not do what you need and more. Great value for what it delivers. Solid machine.
