The T400s’ Intel Core 2 Duo SP9600 (2.53GHz) performed well in Sandra's CPU-specific test. The notebook had plenty of power for basic multitasking and multimedia playback, so results here were what we expected.

In the CPU multimedia test, the T400s fared well, but it definitely didn’t blow away competing offerings. In real world tests, the notebook handled multimedia content well and didn’t drop any frames during playback of a 1080p movie clip.

The SSD in the T400s blew the competition out of the water in the Physical Disks test. We were certainly impressed with the drive’s performance in our real-world tests as well.
