Lenovo ThinkPad T410s with NVIDIA Optimus ReviewLenovo recently celebrated the milestone of selling 60 million ThinkPad notebooks. That's a ThinkPad for every person in the United Kingdom, to put it in perspective. Moreover, the PC maker claims these things sell like electronic hotcakes, to the tune of 14 per minute. Lenovo doesn't reach these types of numbers by selling outdated hardware spruced up with brushed aluminum, and clever marketing. The company targets tech-savvy business consumers and home users who want light, durable notebooks that offer cutting edge technology.

The notebook we're reviewing today is an improvement over the original T410 we took a look at earlier this year. This latest iteration offers consumers a feature that gives it an important advantage over the majority of other laptops on the market.

Like InfinityzeN1, I use Thinkpads for work too.  My only complaint at all, historically, has been the underpowered Intel graphics that this system appears to nicely address.

How does the price compare to those other systems though?  I'm probably just remembering wrong, but I'd swear I've seen the Asus and Dells mentioned at about half the price of the Lenovo.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
