Lenova Thinkpad SL510 is a Great Value and a Quality Laptop
I purchased my laptop as an “open box” item, so I saved over $100. This made the for a great value. Even at full price, this laptop is worth it.
I have 3 other Laptops and not one of them comes close to the quality and productivity of the sl510. (they are all in the same price range.) I will never buy a Dell ever again. I don’t think I would ever buy any other brand again, for that matter. Lenova is a top notch computer that is second to none.
A nice big Laptop, for so little!
This is truly an amazing laptop. It’s meant for business yet this baby can still do so many non-business apps. You can’t beat the price. Can I say that without sounding to easily impressed? Shipped with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, ddr 3 with awesome speed, DVD±R/RW Intel GMA 4500MHD, esata, three USB 2.0 ports, and HDMI!! I know it’s not really that big a deal but when you pay so little you shouldn’t really get this much. Great Lenovo support. I don’t know why I ever bought anything but ThinkPad. It stays cool,and the processor is an intel core 2 duo! enough said. Thanks Amazon.
Great deal for the price
I got this unit in Northern Minnesota in just 3 days, (Standard shipping) but it was damaged in shipment. Amazon replaced it in less than 24 hours and this one works fine. Very solid unit with everything you need for a basic “work” lap-top, at a really super price. I am replacing an “IBM” Think pad — love their durability and no-frills method of construction. Worth every cent!
Great entry-level thinkpad
I’m typing this review on an SL510 (purchased in June 2011 – about 6 months ago). The only thing this laptop is short on is bluetooth (which you can get a micro adapter for).
Other than that, the build quality of this thing is amazing. It’s a bit utilitarian, but very sturdy. I went through a few other laptops that I didn’t like before I got this one. (Do NOT buy a Lenovo G series laptop… It won’t compare to this…AT ALL.)
I can see myself sticking with this laptop for a while… and then after this, probably another Thinkpad. (That’s probably the best compliment I can give…)
Actually, it should not be titled as a notebook.
It’s quite heavy and bulky.
It’s more of a Laptop, if you ask me.
Nonetheless, it’s working fine for me.
SL510 Awesome Quality Product!
I purchased this a few months back from Amazon. What a terrific system and price. This was my first Lenovo, and it will certainly not be my last! I am coming from the Dell laptop camp, but I have also had a Toshiba in the past. In either case, Lenovo is still creating a darn high quality laptop (even though IBM is no longer underwriting the brand). I added an additional 2 gig of memory from MemoryTen. All in all, I can definitely recommend this system. Note that since it is Windows 7, 64 bit; you may need to install Microsoft Virtual Machine, and Virtual XP to have the ability to use old 16 bit Windows apps. Don’t worry, MSVM and Virtual Windows XP are free and installed on the SL510 like a snap. No crapware on board the Lenovo either. Very sold, internal frame – love it. Blows Dells with all the build and driver issues clean out of the water! Snag one of these while you can!
Lots of features for the money. I bough this to network with our office system and it is perfect. Our other laptops are the tablet type (with the swivel top and touch pad) and much more expensive. This does everything we need for one-third the cost.
Positive: works very well, resistent.
Could be better: size is big related to the keyboard, there is room enough for a numeric keyboard
I don’t like: keys for insert, delete, home, end, page up and down are too fitted in the keyboard, it isn’t comfortable
