Lenovo ThinkPad T400 6473TBM

 

For many years ThinkPad notebooks have been the benchmark by which other notebooks have been measured, purely because they are so well engineered and ...

Sturdy construction, comfortable keyboard, dual pointing devices, keyboard light

Only 1GB RAM, slow hard drive, no webcam

It might not look pretty, but the Lenovo ThinkPad T400 6473TBM sure feels good to use. You should definitely consider it if you want a laptop that will be comfortable to use either on the road or in the office and you don't need a lot of speed for...

Though Lenovo's ThinkPad T400 costs more than Acer's TravelMate 6293, this all-purpose laptop is a pretty compelling package. At $1419 (as of March 9, 2009), the Thinkpad T400 gives you sturdy construction, great battery life, smart design, and some...

Lenovo ThinkPad T400

 

A sound foundation and improved features place the Lenovo ThinkPad in the number one slot, once again.

Dual graphics chipsets. Fastest Centrino 2 processor that's not branded Extreme. Fast, spinning hard drive. Wide range of wireless options. Excellent resolution on an LED screen. Priced well below past launches. Impressive battery life, especially with...

BD-ROM option would be nice.

Lenovo Thinkpad T400

 

There are subtle yet noteworthy differences between the T400 and the 6930p. First, despite its 56-Wh extended battery, the T400, at 5.2 pounds, weighs a tenth of a pound less than the 6930p with its 37-Wh configuration. Both have 14-inch widescreen...

Lenovo's T-Series has once again set the bar for business laptops with up-to-date performance parts and a new Centrino 2 feature named Switchable Graphics.

Review Lenovo Thinkpad T400 (6474-19G) Notebook

 

Business Device from Tradition. As Value Line models are thought

Good office performance; Excellent input devices; Splash-proof keyboard; ThinkLight keyboard light; ThinkVantage tools; UltraBay Slim Slot; Docking port; Buckling resistant hard disk; Very quiet in idle and office mode

Vertical USB ports; Port arrangement for lefties; Recovery DVDs/CDs aren't included

The bigger T500 from Lenovo and in any case the Latitude E6400 from Dell. Other business notebooks with the same processor and graphic chip, but also with a larger display (15.4 inch) would be the Toshiba Satellite Pro S300 or the HP Compaq 6730b.

Updated Lenovo ThinkPad T400 Review

 

Upgrade and expansion is a step harder than most notebooks, but still very simple. To gain access to all user-replaceable parts, you simply remove five screws and carefully remove the palmrest and keyboard. Here you gain access to an open WWAN slot,...

Screen backlight makes me wonder where I put my sunglasses ; Excellent battery life even with high brightness screen ; Improved keyboard support ; Excellent ThinkPad build quality

ThinkLight still needs some work

One feature that has been on ThinkPads almost forever is the ThinkLight, which is a small white LED located above the screen that illuminates the keyboard. On every other model that has this light, it works as intended and gives a little light on the...

Lenovo ThinkPad T400 Review

 

The new 14-inch ThinkPad T400 is the latest Lenovo notebook based off of the Intel Montevina platform. This computer offers all new features such as hybrid graphics, LED backlit displays, and power-saving refinements that let the notebook get...

10 hours of battery life with the 9-cell battery ; Very bright LED backlit LCD ; Under normal conditions is very cool and quiet ; Hybrid graphics that let you switch between great 3D performance or great battery life

Keyboard flex in a ThinkPad ... the end of an era ; Keyboard light that blinds you instead of just illuminating the keyboard

The Lenovo ThinkPad T400 proved to be an exceptional 14" business notebook, giving almost unheard-of battery performance under modest running conditions. Nearly 10 hours of runtime with the extended battery easily puts this notebook into the all-day...
