Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 notebook

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad range has always been aimed at the business user, someone who puts in an order and has the company pay for their expensive new piece of kit. So, what happens if you're a sole trader looking for a notebook that can be business machine...

Fantastic build quality, great price, good battery life

Lacks power

The Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 manages to deliver both in terms of aim, as well as price. For the asking price, the build quality is excellent and the all-round usability makes it a pleasure to use. Sure, it's not the most powerful notebook around but the...

Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 274634M

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 274634M features a different style to the usual ThinkPad.

Good processor, excellent keyboard, good screen

Heavy, only 250GB hard drive

The Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 274634M is an all-purpose laptop that provides plenty of processor power and connectivity, but it lacks the portability and the storage needed to be great.

Lenovo ThinkPad SL500

 

Lenovo's latest ThinkPad line lives up to the brand's reliable, road warrior reputation.

Fingerprint reader, Centrino 2, High resolution display, Good value, Good battery life

Not available with 64-bit Windows Vista, Too much pre-installed software, Glossy cover accumulates fingerprints

Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 - PCQuest

 

I strongly believe that a business notebook is better off as looking serious. And serious doesn't necessarily mean ugly. The SL500 from Lenovo doesn't only look serious but looks evil
