1 week ago
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.
Summary: Excellent Product. I needed an upgrade form my old trusty rusty raggedy laptop, something powerful yet economical. This laptop has just what I need and from a name I trust. I can run multiple applications with ease and have had little to no trouble at all. The only shortcoming is the video processing, but I am not a gamer so, It's not big deal. Great product, fast and safe shipment, and I would definitely purchase it again.
Excerpt: I honestly have to say, This laptop is amazing. My mother won it in a contest at her job 2 days ago. She gave it to me, as a present. I thought it would be terrible, because I though IBM's were more of an 80s kind of computer. Boy, was I wrong. It's fast, and its reliable. I havent had any crashes so far. All of my programs are working fine right now. Its easy to use, and sleek and compact for traveling. It is easy for me to update my website with this, too.
Excerpt: I purchased the Lenovo T500 2 years ago as a result of a Christmas deal going on at Lenovo, and I can honestly say this is the best computer I've ever used. The combination of speed, ease of usage and the quality of the build have come together to make a fantastic laptop. The body of the laptop is solidly built, and there are no parts on it that feel cheap or like they are going to break off. The trackpad is smooth and accurate, and the keyboard feels great to type on...
Summary: I choose this laptop for our micro-Array printer robot(miniQArray). It is working great and is pretty fast in processing the data generated through the robot.The best thing about this laptop is that it is compatible with a whole range of external hardware devices e.g; It is also connected to run our Spectrophotometer. Before switching to Lenovo, we had HP laptop whose hard drive died and also was awefully sluggish.
The Lenovo ThinkPad T500 - The Ugly Duckling of the Laptop World
5 July 2010
Excerpt: "The Lenovo T500 is, at first glance, a horrible laptop. I have never been fond of the ThinkPad series as their ugly looks always seem to become degrading and almost make the product seem old, even when it's brand new! However, around six months ago I did choose to buy one, as the specification was outstanding. The laptop comes with 4GB of RAM(although there is a cheaper 2GB model) which essentially allows you to run as many programs at the same time ...
Pros: extremely fast, stays cool, works with any OS, almost futureproof, upgradeable, robust and durable
