This laptop would be great if I never had to use the Touch pad

Obsolete consumer, Amazon
30 June 2015
  • Summary: This laptop would be great if I never had to use the Touch pad. Talk about the most unreliable touch pad my fingers have ever had the hindrance to touch. The location of the touch pad that is used for your primary click (Left clicking in my case) does not always work when you press the same spot,...

Complete FAIL after less than nine months of use

Daniel F. Popp, Amazon
20 June 2015
  • Summary: Having used it for less than nine months (assigned as primary work laptop) I am already having to ship it back due to CPU overheating. While I don't complain much about the trackpad like most of the other reviews, it definitely did take some getting used to for sure.

DON'T BUY THIS MACHINE!

David Arnold, Amazon
5 May 2015
  • Summary: Bought the W540 to replace my aging W510. Core i7-4900MQ proc @ 2.8GHz, 8M cache and 16GB RAM. I am an IT consultant with 32 years experience and use a laptop daily in my work. This machine is slow, slower than the old W510, unstable, and all but unusable.

Great Laptop and Seller

slim, Amazon
17 April 2015
  • Summary: This is a great laptop. Like others, naturally I was hesitant about making such a costly purchase without physically seeing what I was buying. But, the good reviews out weighed the bad and I did my research and went for it. I'm glad I did!

Fits exactly to my needs

15 April 2015
  • Summary: I must recognize it was kind of tricky to get used to this new keyboard design, but quitting the whining and actually starting doing stuff helped me a lot. This keyboard works like a charm.

READ THIS AND DONT MISS OUT

Nicholas Dixon, Amazon
14 April 2015

but I would honestly rather have a proper mouse pointer with half the clock speed over this garbage.

Raymond Luong, Amazon
13 April 2015
  • Summary: I'm usually a big fan of the thinkpad red mouse pointer because it's ergonomic and keeps my hands on the keyboard. They really messed it up with this one button thing, however. It's completely unusable- most of the time the trackpad is confused about single clicks, double clicks, left click, right...
