REVIEW: Lenovo ThinkPad W500

 

The wholly-black W500 (356x255x35mm, 2.78kg) is a typical ThinkPad laptop in terms of build and appearance―some will love its retro and understated appearance while others will want to put it in a museum. I've been a ThinkPad user for years and I've...

At just over £2200 (ex. VAT) for a top-end specification, the ThinkPad W500’s asking price is steep. You also need to ask yourself whether you are going to use all its features. Having said that, the base model (£974 ex. VAT) is very appealing....

Lenovo's workstation laptop - the W500 - is aimed at creative professionals and power users. Jonathan Bray finds out how fast it can go.

Lenovo ThinkPad T500

 

Lenovo comes to the dual-graphics party with its T500, but can it compete with Sony's finest? Jonathan Bray finds out.

Slim, sleek and sexy ultraportables are all very well, but there are times when you need a bit more oomph. That's why we like the Sony VGN-Z21MN/B so much, and why it's resident on our A List. It may not be as thin as a MacBook Air or a Lenovo X300,...

Depending on the load the possible battery life is relatively short to rather useful. Thanks to optional battery solutions, like bigger main battery and ultra-bay battery, the runtime can be increased. According to the benchmark results the Lenovo...

Base unit very flexural rigid; Display very robust; Modular Ultrabay drive slot; Extensive communication modules; Helpful ThinkVantage software; High quality trackpoint; Bright high resolution display; Good performance/mobility ratio due to graphics...

Case deforms sometimes under pressure; Almost all ports are concentrated on the left side; Keyboard has small weaknesses; Modest viewing angle stability; Battery doesn't fit neatly into the case

The Lenovo Thinkpad T500 is a good office notebook, because its emissions are very low. It is quiet and its surface doesn’t get very warm. The Lenovo Thinkpad T500 can thus be recommended to professional or private office users, who want to be mobile,...

Lenovo T500 ThinkPad Review

 

The T500 Thinkpad is the latest 15.4" refresh of the longstanding T-series out of Lenovo. Combining the latest generation of Intel goodies, ATI Hybrid graphics, and DisplayPort connection this notebook has many new things to offer over the previous...

Very powerful ; Cool and quiet under normal conditions ; Great battery life for a 15.4" notebook (5.25 hrs with dedicated graphics, almost 7 hours with integrated) ; Impressive switchable graphics, would you like gaming or battery life

ThinkPad with keyboard flex ; Screen could be brighter

Overall the Lenovo ThinkPad T500 is a fine notebook worthy of a spot on many office or dormroom tables, but it could have come closer to perfection if Lenovo didn't mess with the keyboard

Unlike the T400 which saw a massive jump in battery life over the previous generation 14" notebook as a result of the LED-backlit screen, the T500's battery life was in line with the 15.4" T61. While the 9-cell battery in the T400 gave 7-8 hours of...

The Lenovo ThinkPad T500 may not be as stylish or as fashionable as say, a Sony Vaio but what it does offer is practicality and usability with capable all round performance.
