Lenovo ThinkPad T410 Review

Futuremark PCMark Vantage

We ran the Lenovo ThinkPad T410 through Futuremark’s latest system performance metric built especially for Windows 7, PCMark Vantage. This benchmark suite creates a host of different usage scenarios to simulate different types of workloads including HD TV and movie playback and manipulation, gaming, image editing and manipulation, music compression, communications, and productivity. We like the fact that most of the tests are multi-threaded as well, in order to exploit the additional resources offered by multi-core processors.

Well, would you look at this? A business machine beating some of the more potent gaming machines that have been released over the past few months. Of course, it doesn't win in all departments, but it really screams through some of them. All in all, this isn't a bad showing, particularly when you consider that it's build for business users (who aren't necessarily grasping for bleeding-edge technology). A ThinkPad that can stand toe-to-toe with gaming notebooks? That's a solid selling point.
